NEXT WEEK

CONGREGATIONAL CAFÉ –
on Sunday, June 30, at 11:30 in fellowship hall. The Ad Hoc Committee to Review the Bylaws will present their reorganization plan to the congregation. The Council has approved the changes and now it is time for the congregation to provide comments.  The Committee will then proceed to prepare bylaws revisions for your consideration in the Fall.  

YOGA will meet on Tuesday at 4:00.  We will not meet on Thursday at 6:00, or Friday, at 10:00 because the offices are closed in observance of the Fourth of July holiday.  Regular classes will resume the following week as scheduled.    

GAMMON SCHOOL SUPPLIES CAMPAIGN PROGRESS – As of today, we are almost 60 percent toward our $5,000 funding goal to restock the Gammon School Supply Closet.  Thank you to those who have donated!  Your gifts will provide high-demand supplies for Gammon classrooms and students, a large majority of whom are from low-income families.  Without our gifts, students either do without supplies, or teachers tap into personal incomes to purchase them.  A volunteer will gladly accept your gift at our Fellowship Hall table any Sunday in June.  Or you may mail a check noted for this purpose to the church office.  Keep those dollars coming!

CALL FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY VOLUNTEERS – Earlier this year, one of the Gammon Newcomer families who we gifted with presents last Christmas, earned eligibility for a Habitat House.  Their house, part of Habitat’s Rock the Block Initiative, is located at 1143 N. Estelle and is almost completed.  This seven-member family, refugees three years ago from a camp in Tanzania, has put in 400 hours of “sweat equity”.  They are thrilled that they will soon be in their new home.  We are recruiting volunteers for a final interior and exterior clean-up of the property on Tuesday morning, June 25, from 9:00 -11:30 a.m.  Please contact Cyndi Richter or Marla Flentje if you would like to be a part of our UCC crew.
