Dear friends in Christ,
I hope you’re all doing well this week. I wanted to make sure you’re all aware the worship on Sundays is going to remain at 10am. Additionally, Sunday School is on recess for the summer months. There is still nursery care available for children 6 and under. In addition to that, there are a few upcoming things:
Sundaes on Sunday is Back: June 19th and June 26th
Sundaes on Sunday returns this summer for a limited time only on June 19th and 26th from 5:30-7 at the church. Sundaes are $3. I’ve attached the flyer for more details. Sundaes on Sunday is a wonderful time for fellowship and some great homemade salted caramel sauce and hot fudge! I’m looking forward to getting my ice cream this Sunday.
Celebration Sunday: Thank You!
I want to thank Greg and Kelly E. and our other volunteers who did the legwork and setup/cleanup for our (indoor) picnic last Sunday. Everything went really well, and it was wonderful to have a meal all together.
And, as I said on Sunday, thank you again to all our volunteers who make this community of faith what it is through all the time, talent, and treasure you put in.
Additionally, the music was particularly lovely on Sunday.

Strawberry Festival Update
The initial calculations have been done, and Strawberry Festival has raised at least $1319.45. I know we sold some more biscuits and strawberries this past Sunday, so the final total is a bit more than that. Thank you again for everyone who volunteered and who bought shortcake. It was wonderful evening.
On Friday evening, there was a lovely sunset, and I’ve attached a picture of that.
This Summer for worship, I’m doing a sermon series on Joseph from the book of Genesis. The Joseph story is one of my favorite parts of scripture because I played in the pit orchestra when my high school did a production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” So, the story always brings up a lot of fond memories of that show. Plus, I’m fairly certain I’ve still got nearly all the lyrics to the show memorized after listening to the CD so much to help learn my part. This Sunday we’re going to be looking at the sibling rivalry between Joseph and his brothers. And if you’re in a musical mood, this is the song from the musical that covers the lesson we’ll be reading: https://youtu.be/KqhPG9MdL4c (I’m pretty sure this is the cast/orchestration that was on the bootleg CD the pit and cast were given in high school to learn our parts.)
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
