Worship in the Gym:  We are now having our summer worship services in the gym while the sanctuary is being remodeled.  Since you will not be able to enter through the main church doors, it may be more convenient to park in the back parking lot.  The back doors and the school doors will be unlocked for worship services throughout the summer.

Volunteers Needed:  We are seeking volunteers to help with a few items at the teacherage while it is vacant over the next few weeks. The following is a list of items that need attention: paint the walls, clean the carpet, fix leak in the dishwasher, repair or replace ceiling fan in dining room, electrical work to install new smoke alarms and CO detectors, install new controls for attic fan, install new deadbolt and door handle lock in garage door. Please see Kevin Krueger, Jim Anderson or Pastor if you are willing to assist.
