Dear Folks,

Hope you stay cool this hot week!

This coming Sunday, June 23, is the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost.  The scripture is Mark 4:35-41.  The sermon is “We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat”. 

The Concert on the Green series begins on June 26!  July 3rd will be at Veteran’s Park, and July 10 will be back on the Huntington Green through August 28.  We are in need of bottled water to give out as a gesture of goodwill. Please put it in the Fellowship Hall, marked with COG.  The Men’s Group will be selling hot dogs.  Volunteers are needed to help!  If you would like to help hand out water, please contact me.  Thank you!

The VRRP will be working toward settling another family in our Valley.  We are looking for volunteers and donations.  Please help however you can.  For more info, contact Bob Margolies.

Let us pray.  O God, every day the sun rises, every evening the sun sets. This witness of nature is a reminder that there is always a new day to serve you and your people; always a second change to get it right.  Amen.

In Christ love,

Rev. Lucille
