Dear Folks,

Stay safe and dry out there today!

The Concert on the Green is postponed from tonight until tomorrow night, Thursday, August 1. The featured band with be “Gunsmoke” instead of “Terrapin”. Sorry for all the Grateful Dead fans, glad for all the country music fans!

Thanks to everyone who has donated gift cards for our Concert on the Green gift card give away. We are all set for the rest of the concerts! But, we will still need water, so donations would be appreciated.

This coming Sunday, August 4 is the Eighth Sunday After Pentecost. We will be celebrating Holy Communion. The scripture is Luke 12:13-21. The sermon is “Investing for the Soul”. We will also be welcoming back our Minister of Music, James Bruni!

The Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF) offering will be taken this Sunday, as on every Communion Sunday. EAF is to assist people within the Shelton community and/or our church community who have an urgent, unexpected need for financial assistance. EAF yellow offering envelopes will be available in the pews. Thank you for your generosity!

Please take note of the poster in the Alcove with suggested items for the Valley Food Bank bin in Fellowship Hall. Of course, all items are gratefully accepted, but the Missions Committee put together a list that attempts to target items that may be needed more during certain seasons or months. The need is great, so please be generous!

My Sister’s Place bin is back in Fellowship Hall for you to make your tax-deductible donations by filling out the donation form, take your copy and attach or enclose their copy in with your items.

Let us pray. O God, for anyone in the way of storms, literally and figuratively, may you give strength, comfort, and hope. Amen.

In Christ’s love,
Rev. Lucille
