- Sarah and I had a great time on our three-week vacation. We spent two weeks in South Korea to have some meaningful time with my mother and to meet families and friends. Then we spent the final week of vacation in Bali, Indonesia. It was a trip that our three daughters purchased for us to congratulate our 35th wedding anniversary and we enjoyed it very much. Big “Thank You” to our loving daughters!

- Our Vacation Bible School has started this Sunday for five evenings through Thursday with over 60 children registered. Our leader Keri Secor and her crew of 30 volunteers are busy serving to sow a seed of God’s love and His Son Jesus into the heart of each and every child attending. VBS is a great festival of God’s kingdom and one of major outreach programs we’ve been offering to the community.

- Right after worship this Sunday there was a planning meeting for the Pig Roast Summer Festival in conjunction with our church’s 185th anniversary celebration. It will be another outreach event for the whole community with delicious meal, ice cream, bounce house, fun games, and many presentations of music and, most of all, everything is free of charge thanks to the grant from the Ann Arbor District Board of Missions. It will be held on August 19th, 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. in the church lawn area. Please jot it down on your calendar. Next planning meeting will be held on July 30th after worship service.

- Our Church Treasurer Kathy reports that our offerings have been critically low for several months and we are now running deep in the minus. Please be reminded that the church needs the money to pay for bills and utilities and to maintain the ministry of the Kingdom every single week. Please catch up with your plan of giving if you are behind and consider giving some more and extra above your planned giving.
Prayer Concerns
Louise Proctor’s tests came back good and she’s feeling much better (it was wonderful to finally have her back worshipping with us yesterday) – she goes back for her next check up in 3 months.  Lisa Crist’s mom is much better, having turned a corner in her recovery.  Kathy Leslie asked for prayer for her step-sister Julie who is on the list for a double lung transplant.  Keri Secor asked that we keep the Vacation Bible School attendees and volunteers in prayer for energy, safety, and that the Word of God is spread to all involved this week.
