Hello Old Donation!
It seems extra quiet around here this week, compared to the bustle and busy-ness of last week with Vacation Bible School (VBS). We had a full crowd! 75 kids in attendance, a handful more in the nursery, and TONS of volunteers, youth and adult. Lots of Superheroes around here last week as we explored how we can Discover Our Strength in God. If you missed out on participating in VBS this year, don’t worry, next year will come before you know it.
Tomorrow, Nottalotta Acres, our local urban farmers, will be back selling their delicious produce from 4:00-7:00pm. It was a huge success two weeks ago, and I’ve heard many of you asking if and when they would be back: the time is now! Come out and get some fresh fruits and veggies, and support a local business. Here’s a link to their website if you want to check them out online: https://www.nottalottaacresurbanfarm.com/
On Sunday, I’ll be preaching in the 8:00, 9:15, and 10:30 services and Fr. Bob will be in the Gathering. Our Sundays@5 service is still going strong, and this week George and Ann Butler will be providing dinner for us afterwards. Come on out for a good time!
See you soon,
