The annual CHURCH PICNIC is Sunday, August 30 at Deming Park Lions Shelter #3.  We will start gathering at 4:30 and eat at 5:00.  CLCA will provide chicken and drinks.  Please bring your favorite dish to share.  Don’t forget the lawn chairs and outdoor games.

A new SALT SHAKER dinner season begins in September.  Sign up to meet with other church members for dinner four times during the next year.  The participants are “shaken” to make each dinner group different to give you an opportunity to meet new people and learn new things about old friends.  The host schedules the evening and provides the main dish and the others bring the sides and dessert. Please sign up in fellowship hall by August 23 and indicate if you would like to be host or not and a regular attender or alternate.  Singles and couples are all welcome.

Kid’s Hope – Have you signed up to mentor a child at Deming Elementary with Kid’s Hope? It’s not too late. There will be training sessions to prepare mentors on August 25th at 7:00 pm and September 1 at 7:00 pm.  All mentors need to attend one training session.  For more information to be a mentor, a substitute mentor, or a prayer partner, please contact Suzanne Downs at suzanne@thcpc.org.
