Hello Old Donation!
 
You've waited all year, and it's finally back: our Wednesday night Faith In Film series! Come get a reprieve from the heat and humidity, and join us tonight for a showing and discussion of the movie "Get Low" starring Robert Duvall. The movie will start promptly at 6:00pm, so plan to get here at 5:45 so that you can get a seat and supper before it begins. Tonight's menu will be four different Chinese options (one vegetarian) from Foon's. Great movie, even better company, and delicious food! You don't want to miss it. Also, for those of you with children, our nursery workers will be staffing a children's movie night with pizza in the nursery at the same time. The kids' movie will be Ponyo, one of our family's personal favorites.
 
This weekend will be full of blessings. Friday night, Shelby Wilbur is getting married. Saturday, we are hosting a "THOROWGOOD FAMILY REUNION." Thanks goes to our Historic Traditions group, who is providing Church and history tours. The couple dozen ancestors of Adam and Sarah Thoroughgood (also spelled Thorowgood) will have a lunch and set of talks in Tucker Hall. 
 
Rumor has it that Ian and Emily Charleton may also visit our church on Sunday for the 10:00 service. They are now living in Newport, RI where Ian is the leading CPO for the Navy Band Northeast and Emily is performing locally. Let's pray they make it! 
 
On Sunday, I'll be preaching in the Gathering, and Bob will be at the 8:00, 10:00, and 5:00 services. This week at 5:00 is also Paws, Prayers, and Praise, so bring your beloved pets along! 
 
Stay cool, friends, and I'll see you around campus this week.
