year will go to Unite Work Camp, a local organization that
paints houses
for the disabled, elderly, widows and families that don’t have sufficient
resources to do so on their own.

Staff Out of Office:  Rich Criss left on Wednesday, June 20 for a few
days of vacation before attending his annual continuing education week at
the Lifeway Music's conference, "WorshipLife 2018" which will be held
in Gatlinburg, TN June 25-29.  This conference offers reading sessions
for new choir music and arrangements of contemporary worship music,
daily worship services and breakout sessions on relevant topics and
resources for today's church.  Please pray for safety on the roads, as well
as a great, productive conference.  Rich will return to the office on
Monday, July 2.

Thank you to those who signed up to be Coffee Hour Hosts!  

Cookies Needed for Fellowship Hour:  We are in need of more cookies,
breads, etc. to be put in the freezer. This makes it much easier on those
who volunteer to serve.  Feel free to drop them off in the church office or
in the kitchen.  Thank you!

Please be sure to visit our Sharing Table in the Fireside Room each
Sunday through October!  

A Blood Drive sponsored by the Morrison High School Key Club will be
