Bulletin Highlights
Prime Timer's Luncheon: The Prime Timer's Senior's group will begin their monthly event on Thursday, August 14 at 11:30 AM, with a covered dish luncheon in the Fellowship Hall. Patricia Levesque, Stephen Minister, will be the featured speaker. She will enlighten us on who needs a Stephen minister and who can become one. We have been hearing a lot about this ministry, so please take this opportunity to hear this important message. Make plans to come, bring a friend, your favorite covered dish(es), and enjoy a time of good food and fellowship!

Connect Group Starting: The Connect Groups will be starting back up again the week of September 7. Connect Groups are small groups where we can "connect" with one another by building relationships and caring for one another. More details will be coming over the next few weeks with a description of the groups in next week's bulletin. Be watching for it! Ken Steckert

The Stephen Ministry : The Stephen Ministry is a system for training laypeople to do caring ministry.
