Thank you to all who ordered from Schwan’s for our fundraiser for the LWML. The initial phase is over but we will continue to receive 5% of every order for the next 50 days! Please use www.schwans-cares.com and campaign code 31507 when ordering on- line and 1-855-870-7208 campaign code 31507 by phone.

Women’s Bible study –  We meet tomorrow night, but in July, we will only meet once, on July 17. (same as the men’s group).  We are doing individual studies, so come and join us for one or for all.  We meet at 5:45 pm in the church basement.

Please check the church directory in the narthex to make sure your contact information is correct.  Many people are getting rid of their land lines, so please make sure we have a correct phone number for you.  Many people are including their email addresses, so please consider if you would like your email address added.   Thank you.

With Thrivent Grant Money we have been able to purchase ‘Party Buckets’ and fill them with ideas and items to help you have a gathering of friends, co-workers, family, people in your neighborhood. It is the goal of this summer project to get people together to build relationships and dialogs, in plain language, getting to know the people around you.   We have several different buckets and can’t wait for someone to take them home.  Is it you???  Why not?  Give it a try.  Contact Janelle Swenson or Ellen Sander for more details.

We are collecting plastic grocery bags to be donated to Camp Okoboji. This is to help them save money on trash bags. Bags should be in decent shape meaning no big holes. If you have questions, please contact Charles Ellis for more information.

Next Sunday, July 2nd – Only one service at 10:00 am.

To all new members – please contact Charles Ellis with the Evangelism Team to set up a time to get your new member photo taken. Contact Charles at immachief@gmail.com
