New AGC Director!
We are happy to announce to you that 
Alison Huebner will be our new Director at AGC. Ali has been an employee at AGC for 11 years and she knows the program as well as anyone. She has been the Assistant Director for 4 years and is excited to continue helping AGC be a wonderful place for children, families, and staff members. Ali and her husband Jeremiah are joining the church Sunday, which was in the works long before she became our new director!

Mature Active Super Seniors (MASS)
On Thursday, July 18th, Mature Active Super Seniors, aka, MASS, will gather at Odies in Ely for lunch at 11: 30 and then proceed to Dan and Debbie's Creamery for an Ice Cream Tour ($4.00 per person for the tour. RSVP and pay prior to the day of the event.) Afterwards we will check out shops and Clary Illian's Pottery Studio! Anyone is welcome to join us for MASS in Ely! If you have questions, contact Ann Uthoff.
Chicken Pickin'
On Tuesday morning, July 23rd, in
the church kitchen, we will make the cooked chicken and chicken broth for our Lord's Acre Festival soup. A small early crew will put the fresh chickens into roasters. Later, about 10:30 a.m. we will begin to pull the cooked meat from the bones and freeze for later use. Broth will be stored in ice cream buckets with lids. Please bring your clean ice cream buckets and lids. I will have sign up sheets ready for your signature. We always have fun with this project and many hands are needed. Bring a friend. No experience necessary. Contact Karla Rossow if
you have any questions.
Notes of Gratitude
Thank you for the kind recognition by
all of you on VBS Sunday! Your hugs, compliments and well wishes meant the world to me. All God's Children and the Shueyville Church is a special place and I will miss seeing all of you. The support, working
relationships and friends I have made over the past 19 years will forever be in my heart. The gift card to Earl May is perfect! Thank you. Something special will be planted in our yard and always remind me of you!
                  Many blessings,
Lord's Acre Festival Preparation

We are looking for volunteers to help with both indoor and outdoor activities.If you are new to the church, this is a great way to get involved. Please ask Pastor Brody, Carol Crisman, Kevin Ireland, Cindy Ireland, Karla Rossow, Lori Winborn or any long time member with any questions you may have. Sign up sheets and Ministry Moments will be coming soon.  Stay tuned!

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
