WELCOME to Pastor Aaron Walters from The Table in Bellingham, Pastor Aaron will be leading our services today and next week.
THIS MORNING we celebrate communion. The bread is gluten free.
SUNDAES ON SUNDAY: Enjoy some ice cream tonight at 7pm on the church lawn. We’ve invited RTB families. Please make them feel welcome.
· Elaine took home the wrong blue camp chair on Friday evening after the Rock the Block Carnival. Please check with her if your blue camp chairs don’t quite match at home! Let’s trade back.
· A roll of orange duct tape went unclaimed from the Simple Box storage. Talk to Elaine.
PASTOR STEVE is on vacation this week. Please contact your care community elder if a need arises.
OFFICE HOURS: For the weeks of Aug 6 – 10 & 13 – 17 the church office will be open minimally. Direct all secretary matters to Elaine while Sherry is gone. Office emails will be checked regularly and phone messages on Tuesday and Friday.
FREE BOOKS: To make room on our shelves we are giving away some of our older books that are on a specially marked table in the library. Take as many as you want! Also, the HFG songbooks under the table are free.
BRIDGES OF HOPE newsletter and the Northwest Hispanic Ministry report are available in the narthex for those who did not receive them via email.
