A Touching (Literally) Prayer for Youth Group Grads at Cecily & Dusty’s
Return to Elkins!
We return to Elkins Auditorium for Sunday worship this weekend. Since I will be officiating a wedding in South Texas this weekend (and melting in the heat!), Eric Wilson agreed to preach in my absence. His sermon is titled, “The Crunch of Identity” (Hebrews 12:29-13:16). Please be on the lookout for a hundred student leaders who will worship with our church family – be sure to get to know them!
Singing Class on Sunday
Brad Griffin will teach a combined adult/teens singing class in Stauffer Chapel at 9am on Sunday (but the worship assembly at 10:15am will be in Elkins!). Brad encourages you to be thinking of a song you would like to sing from the Songs of Faith and Praise book.
Young Adult Beach BBQ
The next monthly young adult get-together is scheduled at 5:30pm on Friday, August 18, at Leo Carrillo Beach. Contact Al with any questions!
Youth Group Back to School BBQ and Family Devo!
Families, plan to join us for a back to school BBQ and family devo on Sunday, August 20 from 5-7pm at the Breeding’s house. This will kick off our fall monthly family devo series. If you’re interested in hosting a family devo, let Dusty know at email@example.com.
Praise Team List
So far we just have four sopranos and one alto on our potential praise team list. We need more! Let Al know.
Sympathy & Prayers
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ann Warford in the passing of her sister, Carol Thompson. The funeral is scheduled for this weekend.
