This Sunday we welcome Jennifer Foose as our guest musician today.  Thank you for blessing us!

 

Welcome back Chris Buechler!  Chris will be offering a patriotic medley, “A New Birth of Freedom,” for us in observance of Independence Day weekend. Thank you Chris for blessing us again.

 

A million thanks to our dedicated choir!  They have offered anthems each week even in the absence of a Music Director!  We are grateful to Dr. Joanne Schaper, Barbara Selland, and our guest pianists for keeping our talented choir “on its toes.”

 

Communion Note:  Did you know that the communion trays are configured in a certain way?  Cups containing grape juice are in the center of the tray, and cups containing wine are near the edges of each serving tray.

 

Offering envelopes are now available on the table in the back of the sanctuary.    Please feel free to take some of the preprinted envelopes from the back and write your name in the space provided.
