Most of our summer service slots are full. I’m personally interested in filling the one remaining usher position for July 1, so if you decide to avoid long lines of traffic by staying home that long weekend, consider yourself asked. Please contact me or the church office, and thanks to all who will make the summer special by your help with this project.

The Aboalagal family arrived at 9 pm on Tuesday night! Everyone is healthy and happy to be in Canada with their sister and her family who live in Clearview. Just to remind you almost 3 years ago the sister who immigrated to Canada over 17 years ago approached the church to help her brother and his wife and two daughters ( 8 and 3 1/2) to come as refugees. The sister paid all the money in advance for the sponsorship and will have them live with her until we find a suitable rental unit.
