June Reminders and Special Announcements
Sunday School Recognition and Summer BBQ
Sunday, June 5

This coming Sunday will be the very special day when we honor our youngest members who make up our great Sunday School Program, as well as the teachers and doorkeepers that lead the way. During the 10am service the children will receive recognition for their participation.

Following the service we will celebrate with our first BBQ of the summer!  Burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, condiments and beverages will be provided. Please bring a side dish (salad, fruit, etc.) or dessert to share, as you are able. Family fun, fellowship and great food. Bring your appetite and come enjoy our time together!
Search Committee Criteria and Application
There is still time to consider if this is something you are called to do. the Vestry will be making its decision on June 8 for the appointments to the Rector Search Committee. There are still seats open. We are seeking applications for members of the church who would like to serve.  For more information follow this LINK to our web site.
