If you'd like to join us this Sunday, look for the SLB sign-up sheet at coffee hour following the 10 O'clock service. To learn more about the SLB, please ask for Ed Jacobson, Maryann Kurkjian, or speak with any Usher or Greeter.

A Wrinkle in Time (July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29)  - a discussion for all ages!!

Each week in July at 9 am, join us for conversation about this thought-provoking and inspiring novel. This is a great book to read together as a family. All ages are invited; kids, bring your parents!!

  

 
The Kindness Campaign

This past Sunday the Confirmation Class introduced the $5 Project. Twenty volunteers received an envelope containing a $5 bill. The volunteers were instructed to use the $5 to do something kind:  

help someone in need, brighten someone's day, etc.

Volunteers were then asked to share their story.  We invite others to join us in the $5 Project. Send us your stories (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and then look for these stories here in this space!
