TO ALL VISITORS ATTENDING WORSHIP THIS MORNING:  We are thankful that you are worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus with us.  Part of worshiping our Lord is bringing our financial gifts in the form of offerings to support the ministry of Christ’s church.  As our guest today, please do not feel obligated to give an offering.  We are just thankful that you are here and hope you will continue to worship with us. Want to give your offerings online? Go to

 HOLY COMMUNION: In preparation to receive the Lord’s Supper, please ask yourself these questions: Have I confessed and repented of my sins? Do I believe that in this Sacrament I am receiving the actual body and blood of Christ, under the bread and wine, into my mouth, for the forgiveness of my sins? Do I share the confession and wish to participate in the unity of this congregation? Will I, with the Lord’s help, amend my sinful life? If you answer, “yes” to all of these questions, please join us for this blessed gift from God for our forgiveness.

If you need a gluten free wafer, please ask the pastor when you are kneeling at the rail.

 VBS STAFF SUPPERS – There is a signup sheet on the table in the Narthex for anyone willing to provide a dish for this year’s VBS Staff  Suppers.  This gives the volunteers and their families a chance to come to the church to eat before VBS activities start and not have to deal with it at home.  Attached to the signup sheet is a copy of last year’s menu, in case you provided something, and wonder what it was.
Please bring your dish to church the day before, if possible, or the morning of, being sure to mark that it’s for the Staff Supper, as well as making sure your name is on your dish, if applicable.  (There will be another sign-up for providing snacks for the kids during VBS.)  We also would appreciate helpers for the suppers, even if it’s for an hour or two, and not have to be all four days.  Contact Jean Pemberton (487-9412), for more information or questions.
