FATHER MARK’S ANNOUNCEMENTS
1) THANK YOU to all who have gave so generously at our last week’s special collection for Camp Canterbury Scholarships! We are very near our goal of $1,500. If you haven’t donated yet but would like to help us meet our goal, you can do so by shopping this weekend at our Christmas in July Sale, where part of the proceeds will go to our Camp Fund. Again, my sincere thanks for helping send our kids to camp again this year. It means everything, and I am so grateful for your generosity.
2) VOLUNTEERS NEEDED — Our kids/youth programming starts up again soon, and we are looking for a few more volunteers to assist. Specifically, we are looking for a couple more teachers and helpers for our Godly Play class (ages 5-10), four to eight teachers and helpers for our newest Pre-Teen Group (ages 11-12), and a couple to lead our Youth Group (ages 13-18). This seems daunting — recruiting this many volunteers in a church our size — but our young folks absolutely deserve our best efforts. Will you consider going outside your comfort zone just a bit and helping us teach and serve the youth of our parish? You can volunteer by calling the office (308) 632-4626, or emailing Ann at email@example.com
3) MEN’S BIBLE STUDY begins again Friday, July 23rd at 8:00 A.M. in the library. Good coffee and great fellowship provided and no prior experience reading the bible is needed. All we do is read and talk and I promise you won’t meet a nicer bunch of guys.
4) CATECHISM CLASSES for youth ages 13-15 will begin in September. You can sign your young person up by following this link: https://saintf.breezechms.com/form/6745a319

Forward Day by Day Booklets
We have the Forward Day by Day’s for June and July in regular and large print. If you would like any of these mailed to you, please email or call the church.
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.
