THE READ THROUGH THE BIBLE discussion will take place today immediately following the worship service.

SUMMER OFFICE SCHEDULE: In order to save on costs over the summer months, the church office will be closed on the following Thursdays: July 11th, 18th & 25th and August 1st & 8th. We’ll be back to our regular schedule for the start of the school year.

REMINDER: “SUMMER SUNDAYS” WITH “BREAKFAST & COMMON PRAYER” will be taking place through August 4th. Everyone is invited to come enjoy breakfast, which will be served at 9:00 a.m., followed by a brief, time of sharing, scripture and prayer which will be led by different individuals or families each week. This time is something in which children 1st grade and up could easily participate; children younger than 1st grade can be taken to the nursery following breakfast, at about 9:25. Sunday School classes will resume for the fall on August 11th for Promotion Sunday.

DO YOU SHOP ON AMAZON? If so, please consider designating Friendswood Friends Church as your preferred charity through the “Amazon Smile” Program, and Amazon will donate .5% of your total purchase amount to the church at no extra cost to you. You can do this by following this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/74-1300 892 or sign up for Amazon Smile and look for Friendswood Friends Church on the list of eligible charities. Once you have designated a charity, you can access Amazon through the website smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, and the church will automatically receive your contribution. It’s a simple way to help support the ministries of our church at no cost to you! Contact the church office if you have questions.

PARSONAGE UPDATE: The committee tasked with selling the parsonage has selected a broker to help list, market, and sell the property. Kelly Hutchinson of Colliers International Houston, Inc. will represent the church as our listing broker. Several brokers replied to our request for proposal and after careful study of qualifications, experience, and proposed marketing strategies, the committee made its decision. A sign in the yard should be going up soon!
