We welcome all of our visitors today and invite you to the Fellowship Hall for beverages and cookies after the service.  Please follow the congregation to the left out of the sanctuary.

BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT had an overwhelming response as we
exceeded our goal this year.  Thank you to everyone who contributed supplies and money. A display is set up in the Fellowship Hall this morning of all the supplies that were donated and purchased thanks to you, our generous members. All supplies will be taken to Dellrose United Methodist Church on August 16 and distributed that day at 3:00. We will be accepting supplies up until that date.

2015 HUMANITARIAN AWARDS DINNER held on August 20, at 6:00 p.m. at Beech Activity Center.  The Spirit of Faith Award will honor the Head to Toe Hygiene Pantry and Debbie Green and Kim Carraway for their work and dedication to the Pantry.  We are purchasing tables if you are interested in attending.  Your ticket is a check to the church in the amount of $100 each. Please call Heidi at the church office 316-634-0430, for additional information.


PLEASE CONSIDER becoming a student choir member sponsor.  The sponsorship is $2,000 per student or $200 per month. You may also contribute what you can and join in with other families. Sometimes students are unable to come every Sunday so their scholarship ends up being less than $2,000. However, it is impossible to predict individual attendance. If you are more comfortable contributing $1,600, that is
acceptable too. The campaign will continue through September.  Please indicate “Student Scholarship” on the memo line of your check.
