Dear Friends,

JUST A REMINDER THAT TOMORROW EVENING (WEDNESDAY AT 7:00 PM) IS OUR BUILDING DEDICATION

Bishop Mark Zimmerman comes tomorrow to worship with us and to dedicate our new building.  We’ll pray for God’s blessing on our new home and give thanks to God.  Bob Landreth is asking for cookies and other finger foods for after the service.  He is making punch.

POVERTY, CULTURE AND THE BIBLE, SUNDAYS JULY 17 THROUGH 31 AT 9:15 AM IN THE PARISH HALL

Greg Clark, Executive Director the Jubilee Center of Midland (and our Sr. Warden), will be our presenter.  Over the three weeks, he will discuss:
-What the Bible says about the poor, and how we are called to respond.
-Our culture in America, its effect on poverty, and how it is addressed.
-A journey through forgotten America.
-Hunger in Southwest Texas and the Permian Basin.
-Child Hunger and Homeless Children.
Greg has asked that we begin promptly at 9:15 am. 

CHURCH CLEANING TEAMS BEING ORGANIZED

At our June Vestry Meeting, we decided to organize 5 teams to keep the church clean and care for the yard each week.  The following Vestry members will be leading teams that will each serve once every 5 weeks:  John Brenner, Tola Dina, Bob Landreth, Doug Whiting and Katanna Zachry.  Sign ups were good this past Sunday but we are still in need of another 10 volunteers.  The sign-up list is on the baptismal tank at the back of the church.

SECOND SUNDAY LUNCHEON AND JUBILEE COLLECTION THIS COMING SUNDAY, JULY 10TH

Debbie Kelly is providing Turkey and dressing.  The normal desserts and sides would be a blessing!

Your fellow servant,

Fr. Tom
