COME JOIN OUR SOUND TEAM!  Laurel Anderson, Nikki Hensley, John Reimann and John Lathrop are looking for another team member.  We rotate Sundays.  About one Sunday a month, you would operate the Sound System control panel.  That involves pushing buttons at the right time, and twisting knobs to Ride the Gain for each speaking person, so that they're loud enough to be understood but not too loud.  We train you along a very gentle learning curve.  If you would like to contribute to the church in this interesting and engaging way, talk to anyone in our group.

RELAY FOR LIFE. Join us Saturday, June 29, at Cupertino Memorial Park, 10:00 am start, Luminaria at dusk, entertainment throughout the day. Donate to the American Cancer Society anytime, and you can still make a Luminaria bag - even at the event!  Thanks to the folks who made bags last week, the Golden's party raised over $3,700. 

CREATING CARDS with Sandra Overton meets first Monday from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the Meeting Room. For information, talk to Sandra.
CIRCLE OF WOMEN meets the fourth Monday of each month for potluck and sharing. Contact Irene Ogawa for more information.
LECTIONARY BIBLE STUDY meets Mondays, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Revs. Melanie Weiner and Chris Breedlove facilitate the discussion, focusing on the scriptures that form the theme of the next Sunday's sermon. New participants are always welcome.

JOYFUL NOISE HANDBELL CHOIR. If you've ever thought about ringing with the bell choir, now would be a good time to stand up and be counted! You don't need to know anything about bells. Short-term commitments (a month at a time) welcome! If you're interested, talk with Gretchen or Fred. The bell choir rehearses most Wednesdays from 6:00until 7.30 in the meeting room.
BOOK GROUP meets 10:30 a.m., the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our next discussion is  Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens. Questions? Call Ann Nelson.

FOOTHILLS' CHOIR NEEDS YOU!  To all the singers who don't read music, have plans Wednesday evenings or prefer to 'show up and sing'. We in the "Easy Choir" are looking for you!  We meet in the Sanctuary at 9:15 am every 1stSunday of the month. The Chancel Choir rehearses Wednesday evenings in the sanctuary. Fred Cummins can help with rehearsal schedule and answer any questions.
