Student Ministry Family,

Can you believe it's already July!? Happy early Independence Day. Speaking of, don't forget that we will NOT have Sunday Morning Bible Study this Sunday, July 3 for students or children (adult classes can elect to meet depending on class decision). Plan to have a doughnut and visit with other church members during the Fellowship Hour at 10 a.m. Here is the schedule:

9 a.m. Traditional Worship
10 a.m. Fellowship Hour in Hudson Hall
11 a.m. Contemporary Worship

And then, after you enjoy celebrating July 4, get ready because we have a July packed full of fun and ministry opportunities, including two of our biggest events of the year, LifeWeek and Beach Retreat! Read on to get the full scoop.
