Outreach Opportunity with MSAV August 21 and 22
On August 21-22, the MS Alliance of Virginia is hosting a Respite for folks with MS and their caregivers at the 4-H Skelton Center in Wirtz. They are looking for any pontoon boat owners who would be willing to volunteer an hour or two that weekend to give lake tours to some of these folks who rarely get a chance to be on the water, let alone see a gem of this lake we call home.

If you are able to help, please email Dianna Weiner
or call (607) 760-8311. Thank you for considering this
important outreach opportunity!
New Sunday morning book study beginning July 25
Please join us on Sunday mornings for the study, Courage by Tom Berlin, facilitated by Bill Hamilton. This six-week study will be held in Room 112, beginning Sunday, July 25, at 9:45 a.m. Courage is the foundational virtue required for the Christian life. Pastor and author Tom Berlin challenges us to unlock the courage we already possess as Jesus followers. By examining the life of Christ, we will begin to understand what true courage is and how God works in the lives of Jesus’ followers as they exhibit a brave faith. Once we have eyes to see what Jesus is showing us, once we have ears to hear, we can begin to find the remarkable life Jesus offers us.
Books may be purchased online.
Please email Bill Hamilton to register.

preschool area at Bethlehem? If you can help,
