- We welcome to our pulpit today Rev. James Grossmann from Eureka RCUS in South Dakota. May God bless his ministry of the gospel to our hearts today.
- Fellowship time will be held after service today, which will be an opportunity to meet Pastor Grossmann, a potential candidate for our congregation.
- Thank you to all of those contributing their time and donations to this year’s Covenant Church Camp. It is truly neat to see the helping hands of our congregation come together to make such a memorable event possible. Church Camp is a time where many of God’s children strengthen their faith as well as their friendships with each other - something we could not have done without your help. Kayla Shillcox
