Look through the Wednesday report to see a picture of our own Anna Tilstra-Smith. I asked her in a text for a quick summary of GA. It was “I’m amazed and proud of the PC(USA).”

CHURCH LIBRARY NEWS – The Central Presbyterian Library collection is now available online to anyone with an internet connection! Link to: https://www.librarycat.
Check out procedures and materials for the library are on the table next to the adult library shelves in fellowship hall. The CN Library Subcommittee hopes that this will simplify the process and encourage the use of the adult and children’s section of our tremendous library.
UNDIE SUNDAYS – this is the last Sunday to collect
