News for the Church, 7/9/21

A soggy “good morning” to you, Church!

It’s been a wet few days with cool temps. Have you been enjoying these cooler days? If you’re like me you had to pull out a sweater and turn on the heat in the car! 

Rummage Sale Saturday 8:30 – 4:30

I’m headed off to help out with the rummage sale again today. Yesterday the Center was like a small beehive with people buzzing all around. It was so much fun to get to be with everyone working on a project together! And we have so many things to offer, it’s amazing. We even had to borrow a couple tables from the sanctuary, there’s so much stuff! There’s a beautiful queen size bed frame, lamps, pottery, a canoe, sporting equipment, toys, books, CDs, a sewing machine, crafts, kitchenware, baby gear, and clothes for the whole family. Whooie! 

If you have an hour to spare today, come on down to help unpack boxes and organize things. Or, come tomorrow and help manage the traffic. Or help on the other end of the weekend with cleaning up. There’s plenty of ways to help out! (And we need it. Beth Grace and Sue can’t do this alone.) 

The sale will be held on Saturday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. 

Wells 50th Anniversary

In other news, today I’d like to offer a big shout out of joyful celebration to Jane and Dave Wells. They’re celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary with their kids and grandkids this weekend! 

Let’s remember to offer them our congratulations when we see them next. 

Have you been married for 50 years? Or close to it? I’d love to hear any advice or wisdom you’d have to offer to the rest of us. What’s gotten you through those years?

Friends, even with this wetter weather, I hope that you are reveling in the joys of summer. LIfe is still wearisome and hard some days I know, but it’s a good day to be alive! 

“This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”

Psalm 118:24
