Consistory – June 2015

consistory-communication2

Our Summer Worship time is 9:30 a.m. The new schedule will run through September 6, Labor Day weekend. Be sure to help spread the word to your neighbors and friends.

Will you be gone for some Sundays this summer? If so, you are encouraged to send your donation envelopes to the church. Financial gifts generally decline over the summer while people are on vacation or at cottages, and it would be helpful to have a steady amount of money coming in to meet financial obligations that occur year-round.

After Service Socials will be held after the 9:30 a.m. services throughout the summer. It is easy to host – keep it simple with some cookies, coffee, and juice drink. There are several weeks still available for families or groups in the congregation to take a turn at hosting the social. Costs will be reimbursed from church funds (so keep your receipts). If you are interested in hosting, please contact Laura Jolliffe.

VBS is coming up quickly! Each evening from July 26 – 29, 6-8 p.m., kids from age 3 through having completed the 5th grade are invited to learn about conquering challenges with God’s Mighty Power. If you are able to help out during some or all of those evenings, please contact Beth Jennings or sign up via the e-mail link in recent e-Beacons.

Relief Donations are still being received for Nepal. Nepal, India, and Tibet were devastated by recent earthquakes. You can help bring aid to this area of the world with prayer and financial giving. RCA Global Mission is teaming with World Vision to bring relief. Giving can be done by donating online directly to the RCA (https://www.rca.org/news/rca-responds-nepal-earthquake), or by placing a clearly marked envelope in the offering plate any Sunday until the end of June.
