 Happy Birthday to Ned 

Of course every birthday is special, but in August we will celebrate with Ned Swarner who will be 97 on August 7th.  “Avocados and gardening” is what he told his doctor has kept him going.  Thanks be to God for his life and good health.


Monday School

July 2 finished the last of our studies of The Lord’s Prayer.  Hopefully some of our discussions will come back to us as needed when we repeat this very important lesson that Jesus taught his disciples..

Holy Communion

The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper will be administered during worship Aug. 6th and taken to shut-ins following worship.




Check out the church’s new computer in the office!




Summer Fellowship

and Blessing of the Backpacks

We will have a Fellowship Breakfast on August 26 as we gear up for a new school year.  No more sleeping in, but getting ready for another year of learning and growth.  Everyone is invited to come for breakfast before Sunday School on that day.

Then, during the worship service we will have a blessing of the backpacks.  Kids are encouraged to bring their backpacks to church that day.




Christmas in August?

Too early?  No!!  Come and put your craft hands to work as we bring out our Chrismons to repair this year before we put up the Christmas tree.  We will be looking at costumes also and seeing what needs to be repaired and ready for Advent season.  Carols and cookies are optional.  Look for additional information of the exact date and time for this event.

An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo.  Lots of children were waiting in line to get their face painted by a local artist.  A girl in line told the boy, “You’ve got so many freckles there’s no place to paint.”

             Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head.  His grandmother said, “I love your freckles.  When I was a girl I always wanted freckles.  Name me one thing prettier than freckles.”

             The boy thought for a minute then smiled as he softly said, “Wrinkles.”
