Come one, come all, to the summer extravaganza!
Also known as Tag Sale! This weekend is the big fellowship and fundraiser for the parish. We’ll meet Wednesday 6pm at the parish to move everything from the garages to the Stalkers’ place. Then through Saturday we’ll set it up and sell it all ’till it’s gone (ask Patty or Linda or Linda for more details on helping out).
The sale runs Friday and Saturday; Thursday we will be setting up.
Many hands make light work for clean-up Saturday, or Sunday after worship if we don’t have the hands Saturday. While the proceeds from the sale tend to fund some of our major projects around the parish, the sale itself is also a great ministry opportunity, to reach out in fellowship and welcome to the greater Chatham community.
But wait, there’s more!
The following Sunday, July 20th, worship will be with our Reformed neighbors at Crellin Park. Bring a canned item for the food pantry, a lawn chair, and a dish to share. We’ll have worship at 10 am, followed with food and fellowship time together. Bring your kids, your friends, your neighbors, and have them each bring a canned good or other non-perishable item (whichever parish brings the most food to donate gets to soak the other parish minister). Bring your singing voice, your prayers, your sense of fun, and let’s have a party!
And just when you thought we’d had all the fun, there’s more!
The season of Pentecost continues as our kids go to camp, play ball, catch fireflies. It’s a perfect time for campfire stories, so we’ll have a bit of training after worship on the 27th for those who like to tell stories, who might share that gift with the parish by reading on a Sunday morning. Bring your calendars and sign up to read on a day of celebration – your birthday, anniversary, or other special day – so we can honor you as you share the word of the Lord with us in worship.
