Weekly Contact– July 23, 2015

Hello there,

There is a lot going on at church this Sunday. For special music during worship the Cedar Sounds will be singing. They are a Sweet Adelines chorus and our own Donna Bean is a member. They have a beautiful sound and I know you will enjoy them. We will be baptizing two children. Pastor Beth is preaching. Her text is John 6:1-15 and her title is “Overflowing Grace.”

After worship we will be having a Christmas in July brunch. Enjoy some breakfast casseroles and Christmas cookies, celebrate and make a generous donation to support Operation Christmas Child.

We also will have some special guests. A group from First Presbyterian Church in Muscatine will be here to tell us about their recent mission trip to Haiti to work with Starfish Ministries. We are hoping to send a team down to Haiti in November. So grab some brunch and head to the chapel after worship to hear about this wonderful opportunity.

Finally, just a reminder—we are collecting supplies for backpacks for Marion Cares. Stop by the table in the social room to pick up a list and instructions. Please bring the backpacks to the church by August 9th.

Stay in One Peace,
