Junior High Mission Trip- North Lawrence, Ohio (June 23 – 29)
Day of Prayer! – Our church has been asked to set aside Thursday, June 27 of this mission trip week to pray over the trip in North Lawrence, Ohio. Other churches coming on the same mission trip will be praying over the rest of the days. The desire is to have this mission trip saturated in prayer everyday by people who know and love these participants. We know and believe prayer can make a difference. We need you to make that difference possible. Pray for the community, the staff, neighbors, work campers and work projects. Thank you for praying and your support in this ministry!
PRAYER TREE FOR OUR VBS KIDS! Please take a slip of paper (or 2 or 3) off the prayer tree in the narthex and take time to pray for that child for the next year. Our children are under constant attack from the world, the flesh, and the devil. Our desire is to bathe each child in prayer that they may grow in their love for Jesus and receive eternal salvation. Thanks for your prayer support!
ALL CHURCH BIKE HIKE is Sunday, July 7. You may eat a packed lunch in the pavilion after church. Then we will leave at 1 pm for the Rails to Trails (a block from the church). Remember money for ice cream at the Twin Kiss in Colebrook. Questions may be directed to Dave Knauss.
