What is Happening This Week

Dear Church
This Sunday, July 15th, please join us for a “Sending Forth Potluck Luncheon ” for Rose and Mike Lovell. We will gather in the Covenant Center following worship to break bread and wish them well as they move to California. Meat will be provided, so please bring your favorite side dish or dessert!

VBS is going great this week! Please continue to keep the kids and volunteers in your prayers as we learn, sing, dance, pray and play together.
