BUCK IN A BASKET for August will be for David's Room in the Inn.  Funds help us maintain our pantry so those donating cooking time and skills will have some staples and some extras in case there are extra hungry folk to feed. 


RALLY DAY IS AUGUST 22 and the Mission Committee and Christian Education Ministry are planning a BIG EVENT!  Mission Fair, Food Trucks, Games, and more.  Plan to stay following worship for food and fun.  And invite others to come!


SEERSUCKER SUNDAY is August 29.  Wear your seersucker and plan to stick around a few minutes so we can get a picture.
