Reflection
 
- The week has finally arrived for our Summer Festival this Saturday starting at noon. Food will be served in the fellowship hall. Tents, tables and chairs are set up in the lawn area outside the building where they would sit down to eat and enjoy music and presentations of live songs by the praise team, VBS children and other groups.

- This festival is, first of all, for our church families to appreciate and say “Thank you” for who you are and for all you have done for the Lord through this church, as we celebrate our 185th Anniversary.  So please come join the crowd yourself and invite your friends and neighbors too, to have fun time together.

- Change of Worship Time -- In addition to the excitement of the Summer Festival on August 19, please remember that our worship time will go back to 10:30 am the day after the festival, on Sunday August 20.

- For weeks we have been bombarded with the news on the nuclear missile development (ICBM) by North Korea and the escalating tensions between the United States and N. Korea. Please pray for peace and reconciliation for people in the Korean peninsula. If a war breaks out there, there would be a great number of casualties on both sides, not to mention 28,500 American soldiers stationed there and several thousand more of US civilians.
 
 
Prayer Concerns
 
Donna Adams’ oldest daughter is struggling with stress; Donna’s granddaughter is adopting three children currently in foster care; Donna’s son-in-law’s cancer is gone after two surgeries and prayers are needed to ease his pain and for his entire family.  Continued prayers are needed for Kathy Leslie’s cousin Jay in Virginia who is extremely ill.  Prayers also for Kathy’s boss in Indiana whose mother has cancer, his father had a stroke and his wife has breast cancer; travel mercies to him as he travels back to Ann Arbor.  Marianne Avery (Dawn Wyse’s sister) was thankful to our awesome God who allowed her 20-year-old grandson to survive a shooting.  Betty Labert asked for continuing prayers for her husband Elwyn Labert.  Judy Williams’ friend Vickie had surgery to remove a partial lobe of her lung due to cancer.
