Youth Mission Trip ~ Our youth group will be leaving at 5 pm for their mission trip to Ludington, Michigan. They will be
working through N2N under Habitat for Humanity of Mason County and Lakeshore Food Club for this mission trip. Their days will consist of working on building projects and at the local food pantry from Monday through Thursday and return home on Friday. They will be staying at a local church in Ludington. Today at 4:45 pm we will gather at the church parking lot to send them off with prayer. Everyone is invited to join for this time. They also ask for your prayers throughout the week that Jesus may shine through them and they will grow in their faith life.

Evening Worship Service ~ Our evening worship service tonight will be led by Pastor Ron Lugten of Hamilton Reformed Church. We will worship with Hamilton Reformed and Bentheim Reformed at 6 pm at our church.

Next Sunday morning we will have the celebration of Holy Communion. This week prepare your heart for this
celebration that Jesus has saved you from your sins. A thank offering will be received for Faith Promise Mission.
Home-bound communion visits will be on Wednesday, June 20.
Small Group Bible Study will be held on Tuesday, July 3 at 7 pm. The lesson is #8, “Imagining the New Heaven and New Earth”, from our study books.

Community Vacation Bible School will be Monday, July 23 – Wednesday, July 25, 6 – 8:30 pm at Hamilton Reformed
Church. Our church is co-hosting these three nights with Hamilton Reformed. We are in need of more adult volunteers to help on these three nights. Sign-up at the Welcome Table if you can help out.

Garage Sale ~ The Youth Group is planning a garage sale sometime in August. They are in need of gently used items for
this sale. If you have good used items that you no longer need that would be good for this sale they can be placed in the classroom in the basement. Proceeds from this sale will be for next year’s mission trip to Colorado.

Fellowship ~ Cookies are always needed for fellowship time following the morning worship service. Your cookie
donations may be home-made or store-bought, avoid cookies with any type of nut or peanut butter, and may be left in the church kitchen before the morning service. Thank you for your help with this service.
