Youth again! Saturday, August 8th, we will have a workday at Linda Summer’s house. Meet at the church at 8 am, pickup at 1:30 pm. Wear grubby work clothes and BRING GLOVES. Lunch is provided.

Sunday August 9th there will be a Sunday School brunch at 9 am in the fellowship hall to kick off the school year. This is a great opportunity for teachers, parents, and new classmates to meet each other. Pot-providence; everybody bring favorite breakfast dishes and drinks to share!

Small Group Leaders Training is TUESDAY, August 4th at 6:30 pm.

The All-Church Retreat is tentatively scheduled for November 20-22, which is the weekend before Thanksgiving. Please call the church office, email, or take the survey on the church website before Tuesday to let us know whether or not this will work for you.

I do not hesitate to regard the Branch of God and the fruit of the earth as denoting an unusual and abundant supply of grace, which will relieve the hungry; for he speaks as if the earth, barren and exhausted after the desolation, would hold out no promise of future produce, in order that the sudden fertility might render the kindness of God the more desirable; as if the parched and barren fields would yield unexpected herbage.

John Calvin, 1550
