JULY/AUGUST CONNECTIONS MAGAZINE is available on the table in the narthex. This month’s issue has a number of good articles on the wilderness wanderings of the Israelite people after their captivity in Egypt.

JULY MISSION COLLECTION: Throughout the month of July, we’ll continue to collect items for the Bridge Home in Ames. They need packaged food that does not need to be refrigerated and that can be heated in a microwave with no additional preparation required. Canned ready-to-eat soups and other foods that can be opened without a can opener. Also socks and underwear for men and women as well as personal care items. Bring your donations to the church and place them on the table in the upper hallway. They will be distributed to those in need at the Bridge Home in Ames as well as in our local communities.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR INDIVIDUALS WILLING TO LEARN TO RUN OUR SOUND/VIDEO SYSTEM. If God has gifted you with a skill for technology, please talk to Mark Thomas or Brad Becker to see how you can help. Brad has offered to teach a class to anyone interested in learning.

OUR CHURCH BUILDING WILL REQUIRE TUCKPOINTING in the near future and the Trustees are inviting everyone to contribute to a fund that will pay for this essential project. Simply mark your donation “Tuckpointing”—we appreciate whatever you can do.

SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY continues. Everyone is invited to join us at 8:00 am as we study Paul’s letters to Timothy.

SUNDAY NIGHT MEN’S BIBLE STUDY:  All men of the congregation are invited to join in at 7:00 PM on Sunday evenings.

OUR DAYCARE IS HIRING. WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF MORE STAFF. We especially need part-time staff (able to work even a few hours a week) and people who would be able to fill in when regular staff is sick or otherwise unable to work. Please talk to Pastor Kathy if you are interested.
