FOR YOUR INFORMATION!
To Our Church Family & Friends:

     The Semi-Annual Trivia/Silent Auction nights are now in their 10th year and are being great evenings for our church and friends as well as being good fund raisers for various causes.  We have been blessed with wonderful volunteers and donors as well as enthusiastic players and outstanding trivia masters.
     We greatly enjoyed seeing everyone have a great time and grow in greater fellowship with all even though it has been hard work at times.  Now we feel it is time for others to take over this event and perhaps lead it in different directions.  Plans are currently being made for another Trivia Night in November but with a slightly different format.  We hope the church and community will continue to support these great evenings and again we thank everyone who has helped us in the past.       Sincerely, Alice & Debbie

Have you heard of the "Give 30 Mentoring Program"?  We were recently informed about this program and asked if anyone from our congregation would be interested in becoming involved.  This would be mentoring a high school student for 30 minutes a week.  We have information in the office if you think you could mentor a young adult.

Meals on Wheels week is June 6-10.  See Debbie if you can help.

The Faith in Action Annual Dinner Auction Fundraiser will be held on Friday, July 22 at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville.  If you have any new item that you would like to purchase or that you have on hand, please bring to the church office and Bonnie will see that it makes it to its destination.  If you would like to create a basket with items donated from several people, that is great too!

Surf Shack Vacation Bible School will be evenings, Sunday, July 31 through Thursday, August 4 ending with a Summer Sizzler party for all.  If you can volunteer to help please contact Ashley Young or Jeri Howard.

Sloppy Sunday School Science Night will be held on July 15 from 6-8 PM at the  church.  We are in need of clean, empty 16 oz. soda bottles (not water bottles) and 1 liter soda bottles.  Please wear old clothes!  If you plan to eat at the 3rd Wednesday dinner, please notify the office to sign up or see the sheet in the Narthex.
