River Baptisms...On July 30, we will gather as a church for our annual river baptisms. This is a joyous high-point for many of us. I encourage you to be a part of this wonderful day. I also want to invite you to consider making a public declaration of God’s grace in your life by being baptized if you have not already done so. Please let Steve know if you would like to be baptized.
Sunday July 30th is the Annual Church Picnic. The picnic will be held at the church and will begin after the river baptism. Hamburgers, hot dogs, lemonade, ice tea, and coffee will be provided. Church family members with last names beginning with A – H, please bring a dessert, J – M please bring chips and dips, and N – Z please bring salads.
Mark your calendars for Montesano’s Community Bible Camp (CBC), set for July 24-28th. This Bible camp is open, Free of charge, to all children in the community, Kindergarten through 6th grade.
Once again Church’s in our community have joined together to offer our young disciples a fun week of learning God’s word. Each morning starts off at 9:00a at the Church of God, and concludes at 12:00n. Register on-line at www.montevbs.com
****Men’s Breakfast…This Men’s Ministry has been started to help primarily single women of our church and/or our community, who have projects that need to be done. The men have pledged to spend three hours of service following the breakfast, dividing into teams depending on the number of projects on hand. All men of the church, as well as their sons, are invited to join this new ministry. The next scheduled meeting will be Saturday, August 5, 8:00a, here at the church. Please contact Jay if you would like additional information
