Vacation Bible School – June 30 – July 3
This year the VBS staff has a great time planned for the children, but we can always use more help. We have a need for some donated items for the Marketplace. Check out the list below and see how you may be able to help. What a great way to serve others!
Beads, tassels, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, small jingle bells and small seashells that may be drilled and made into necklaces
Artificial plants and flowers for lend.
Old colored striped sheets that can be made into robes by Jean Brewer.
We can’t do any of this without our teachers!
If you should have any of these items (check out yard sales) they may be left with Barbara Burke 536-7020 or Suzy Willson 585-526-1004. Thank you, we know how pressed everyone is for time these days so we do appreciate all that you can do for VBS!
We are seeking people who might be interested in helping plan and orchestrate our Sunday morning worship services. How many times have you had an idea or suggestion for a sermon topic or for a song
that would have tied in perfectly with the message Pastor Tharp presented that morning? Maybe you’re interested in drama and would enjoy seeing a skit once in a while. Perhaps you are a great organizer and love to plan or you would like to take part in PR to promote upcoming special worship events to reach out and bring in some of the unchurched in our community. As you can see, the possibilities are endless. So we’re asking you to prayerfully think about the gifts God has given you and consider being a part of our Worship Committee. If you’re interested, or would like more information, please contact Pastor Tharp, George Jensen, or Pam Scutt.
Keuka Comfort Care Home Benefit
There will be a yard sale to benefit the Keuka Comfort Care Home on Friday and Saturday, June 6&7, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., at the Grange across from Indian Pines Fruit stand.
America will never run… And we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders. ~George W. Bush
