Announcements for week of June 19th

Ever Thought about becoming a Stephen Minister? We will be training another class of Stephen Ministers beginning in mid-September. Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, please begin to prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this exciting ministry. If you think you might be interested, talk with one of our Stephen Ministry Leaders: Jesse Shaddix, Joe DeWitte, Kathy Roskam, Stuart Garner, or Will Northern.

Prayer Workshop – Do you need to refresh or energize your prayer life and your daily Christian walk? We’ll explore different ways to approach prayer — physical things that can influence how our heart, mind, and soul express our desire for God’s will. We’ll practice techniques, but also spend time in earnest prayer for the concerns of ourselves and others. No book required. Beginning 6/12 and continuing through July, at 9:45 am in CLC 204, on the main Sunday School hallway. Contact Joey Butler at

Prayer Shawl Ministry will not meet in June or July.
