Parish News
Our choir will travel to Winchester Cathedral today August 3, returning on August 14. This tour could not happen without a tremendous amount of hard work from many, many people: our musicians, Choir Angels, tour managers, wonderful choir parents, and - of course - all of you who so generously support us through your gifts and encouragement. Please keep us in your prayers.

- Richard Clemmitt, Organist & Choirmaster
A Daily Devotional 
Everyone on our upcoming Choir Trip to Winchester Cathedral will not only be supplied with great music. They will also have a copy of A Daily Devotional booklet put together by Rod Quainton. It contains selections from Holy Men, Holy Women which have been chosen by Rod to capture the sweep of Anglican history through the contributions made by musicians, composers, artists, poets, and writers, who through their talents give us an insight into Christianity and spirituality. There are copies available at the back of the church (for the 8AM service) and on the refreshment table (for the 9:30 service) if you would like to follow along with the Choir Trip. Link to the pdf.

Food Pantry Donations Need Transportation

Could someone-maybe YOU!-help with this important piece of the ministry?
