Our lives are made up of small, daily decisions that eventually shape our character. Jesus highlights this principle in Luke 16:10, “Whoever is faithful in little things will be faithful in large ones.” 
We are inviting each of you to participate in monthly experiment that will engage and encourage you to look at stewardship in a whole new way.

We are roughly half way through our yearly Stewardship Experiments and we couldn't be more excited to hear your reflections. Below you will find a recap of the experiments and a chance to fill in your thoughts and experiences for each one so far. If you missed a few months, just let us know, we have extras!


Your next stewardship experiment is ready to be picked up! For July, we are giving thanks and praise for all that God has provided for us. Take some time to reflect on this and fill in the recap above.
 
If you haven't picked up the last few months of experiments, they are available at church
After losing a whole summer season to COVID-19 Camp Wapo is ready and so excited to welcome campers back to Camp Wapo!

Pastor Mollie registered her boys to attend Seeds Summer Camp (a shorter period of time for first time campers) and will be going July 18-20 (Sunday-Tuesday). Seeds Summer Camp is for anyone who has completed grades 1-3 and is interested in finding out what camp is all about! They'll get to do all the things the week long campers do, but just in a shorter time period.

Unfortunately, camp for grades 4th - 8th have already filled up3 for the summer. However, we would love to go next year together as a group! The dates will be out early 2022 so be on the look out!

If you are interested in going, or need more information, reach out to Pastor Mollie or Jenny or head to the Camp Wapo website HERE.
Our next Blood Drive is July 12!

The need for blood is extremely high right now! This date is full at the moment, but if you are able too, sign up for our next one in September!

Lawn Mowers and Grounds Maintenance
We would like to thank Dave Mundale for mowing the lawn this week! Dave Koch, you are up this week.
Worship Volunteers Are Needed!
Are you interested in helping with worship? If so, contact Jenny in the office. She's created a schedule for the summer, but would love to add you to it!

Another area that we could use some help with is a Worship Host. What's that you ask? It is someone, besides Pastor Mollie or Jenny, that makes sure all of our greeters, ushers, lectors, and reader of the prayers are in worship that morning. It's an area that is greatly appreciated and needed for each Sunday morning. If you are interested, send Jenny in the office an email. Thank you!
