We will celebrate communion during both worship services.

Update on the Ryall Family:
We are happy to report that Molly had successful surgery to remove her thyroid; all tests have come back favorable and she is recovering well. Pastor Drew continues to be encouraged on how Jesus is using this time for him to rest and recharge. From time to time you may see the Ryalls at church on any given Sunday. Please welcome them with your love and encouraging words. As well, feel free to reach out with an encouraging note or card at any time.
Volunteers and Food Donations Needed for Meals of Hope:
Meals of Hope is a once a week food delivery program that serves youth in our area by providing meals and snacks for them during the summer.

The meals are packaged on Tuesday mornings. We began June 7th and it runs through August 2nd, starting at 7:30 am in LaGrange at The Garage. Packing takes approximately 2 hours and then they are delivered by other volunteers.
Please contact Dawn Christner if interested in volunteering to pack meals.
We are asking for some food/water donations for the meals. Listed below are items we are in need of:
980 Water bottles
980 Powder drink enhancer pouches
