FATHER MARK’S ANNOUNCEMENTS
1) THANK YOU to our new Gardening Group, who are already making a huge difference in the health and beauty of our plants around the church! What a wonderful way to use your gifts, and what a blessing to the parish and to the community.
2) Special thanks also to Greg Suhr, who spent yesterday fixing the water supply to both the front and back gardens. As water is essential to life, faithful volunteers are essential to any living and growing and thriving church. We are so blessed to have all of our wonderful volunteers. Without all of you our ministries would wither and die.
3) Don’t forget this Sunday is Camp Collection Sunday! We are sending five amazing campers and two incredible adults to Camp Canterbury by Lincoln on July 19-23. We need to raise a total of $1,250 this week and next to cover the total cost of our group. A portion of that will be donated by the ECW and their Christmas in July sale July 17th, and the rest from our special offering this Sunday. Please be generous, it is for the worthiest of causes — helping kids form lifelong relationships with God and one another.

The ECW will be hosting their “Christmas in July” Bazaar on Saturday, July 17th from 8 am to 3 pm. A portion of the profits will be used to help with the tuition of our youth to attend Church Camp.
We need your help. We are asking you to donate gently used Christmas decorations and Flea Market items you would like to find a new home for. No clothing please! You can bring your donations to the Parish Hall tables on the East wall, starting Monday, July 5th. Ann Salomon, our church secretary, will be in the office Tuesday-Thursday, from 9 am- 1 pm. You can also call Barb Manasek 436-7767 if you need another drop off time.
We also need bakery goodies to sell. They can be dropped off either Friday, July 16th or by 8 am on Saturday, the day of the Bazaar. We appreciate any help you can give us.
