Reverend Bruce Bishop
We welcome Rev. Bishop and thank him for performing our worship service this Sunday.
Women’s Group - Every Wednesday at 10:00 AM
Executive Board Meeting – Wednesday, June 26, 7:00 PM
Membership Committee – Wednesday, July 3, 7:00 PM
Offerings and other cash receipts for the week of June 2 were $946.00. The cost for each week is $1,330.00 (derived by dividing the annual budget by 52 weeks).
Jean Eggleston and Laura Caravatt will be sharing the Altar Guild responsibilities for June, July and August. Jean will take care of the altar and Laura will do her beautiful flowers.
A time of fellowship following the service of worship is held in the social hall. Coffee, juice and refreshments will be served.
Learn to Serve Communion
For the next three months on the first Sunday of the month there will be a "Shadowing Sunday" for those of you who want to learn how to serve communion. Come see the process of serving communion from start to finish. If interested, be at the church on Sunday, July 7, at 9:45 AM. We have the servers; you will just be watching the process.
Women’s Group and Tag Sale
This will be held on August 24 instead of August 17 as announced last week. All your “treasures” (which we badly need) may be left in the church garage.
Church Back Door
At its last meeting, the Executive Board made the decision that only the front door will be open when our secretary, Sandra Russo, is in the office during her regular hours on Wednesday and Friday. This new practice provides greater security for Sandra and the church as a whole. Those with back door keys: if you enter that door on Wednesday or Friday afternoon, please stop by the office to let Sandra know that you are in the building.
Mindy Sue Doyle’s Graduation
The Congregation is invited to Mindy’s graduation at Black River High School on Saturday, June 8 at 10:00 AM. Cookout to follow at the Doyles.
If you want to informally practice music for the service, feel free to come up to the organ before 10:05 AM when Ed is on duty.
Church Website Content
You will find completely new content on the Church Website: www.unitedchurch.us. David Hearne has done the design and creation work. We thank him profusely for the extraordinary amount of time he has put into this work. A committee of three, Fred Marin, Sandra Russo, and Bob Kottkamp, is working with David to make revisions, add new content, open new pages over time, and keep the site current. New elements include a calendar displaying regular meetings and special events and a prayer request page for you to leave information about those in need of support. Please make use of this new communication tool. Please send suggestions for edits and additions. You can do so by using the Contact Form on the website!
