Good Morning Family!

     Next Sunday June 30th, in the morning service, we will share together in a time of bringing on board two men selected to be deacons.  Eddie Harris and Clark Pond have been working closely with our Deacon Team to be ready to become an active part of the front line of primary care for the church body.  I am excited to have these two men agree to become a part of an already great group of men who love and care for the “First” family.  A short reception for Clark and Brenda and Eddie and Christina will follow in the Fellowship Hall that morning. 

     Then, on the evening of Sunday June 30th, we will gather at 7:00pm on the front lawn for a cookout and Fireworks.  The church will provide hamburgers and hot dogs, we are asking anyone who can to bring side dishes and several of you might want to throw together a container of homemade ice cream.  Bring your lawn chairs for a very fun night as we celebrate Independence Day together.  We will end the evening with a time of fireworks put on by our “Pyro-Team”.  Its going to be great family fun!

     Our VBS this year- “Wonder World - Amazed by Our Extraordinary Savior” is fast approaching.  It will be a fun fair type of theme! It is open for students K-6th Grade and it is July 22-25, Mon-Thurs in the evenings.  Our junior and senior high students will have their own summer event on a different date in July.  Please see Tracy or Robin to see where you might fit in as a VBS volunteer.

     This past Wednesday Night, our students facilitated another “snack bag” giveaway for our Cape Fair community.  It was very hot outside, but they were troopers!  109 bags were given away.  Thanks to a bunch of great kids!

     As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.”      II Timothy 2:15.
