Opportunity Knocking..

Two-thousand seven seems to be flying by..... Our Awana Fair was a big success. Everyone had a great time and lots of fun!

A Lake Area Minitries (LAM) Representative will be speaking to the congregation and telling us about ministry opportunities soon. There is a need for an adult volunteer to represent our church at LAM. This would be from 10am-until 2pm on the second Thursday of each month. Who to contact is posted in the church bulletin each week. Also, volunteers are needed to pick up bread at Harvey's grocery one day a week. Substitutes are also needed for occassional bread pick up. Contact Joan Vaughn at 473-7007 if you can help.

Please continue to pray for the family and mom who was recently was in a serious car accident. Her daughter attends Friendship Christian Academy.
