Continue to bring the plastic caps and lids. They will be given to Art Totality for a second bench and to Unity Presbyterian for a bench.
Summer Story Time is every Tuesday in July from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. We are reading and acting out classic children’s tales (3 Little Pigs, Gingerbread Boy, etc.) Storytime will meet for the last time on the 29th.
Life Skills Workshops will be held periodically to educate our youth on some basic skills in preparation for joining the workforce and/or living on their own. On July 29, all youth (rising 6th – 12th grade) and anyone else that is interested are invited to come to the church from 6:00 – 7:00 pm to learn about money responsibility, counting money and giving/receiving change. Thanks to Murray Pate for assisting with the leadership. Please RSVP to Cheryl Moles. This is held the same time as Story Time so the younger children and older children have activities at the same time.
Attention Crafters and those that enjoy fellowship – There is a crafting session for the Fall Bazaar every Wednesday from 10 am to 2 pm.
