A Big Thank You to: the Landers for hosting the Potluck Dinner for welcoming our friends from Malawi (Levi and Ruth Nyondo) at their home. And thanks to all who contributed sides, salads and desserts. Delicious food and good fellowship was had by all!!

Sunday School kicks off next Sunday (Aug. 20)! Join us for breakfast at 9:30 am.

On Sunday, August 27 at 3:00 pm, we will be honoring the Epp family with a baby shower. Join us in Fellowship Hall for finger foods. We have a list of things that Cynthia and Nathan could use for their new addition. We look forward to seeing you on the 27th! Susan Langston and Charlotte Gaw

Parent’s Day Out (PDO):  PDO will have an Open House on Thursday, August 31 in two sessions. The first session is from 10-11:30 am and the second is from 1:30-3:00 pm. The start date for PDO regular sessions will be Tuesday, September 5.

Book Group to Study AN INVISIBLE THREAD: The book group will meet Monday, August 28 at 7 p.m., at my house to discuss An Invisible Thread. If you would like to join the group, let me know and I will order a book for you ($5). We will meet one time for discussion after we have read the book before moving on to our next selection. (Even if you do not want to join the discussion, I will be glad to order a book for you.) Susan Seipp .     An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Thresniowski is the true story of Schroff's chance (or maybe not chance??) meeting with an 11-yr. old panhandler named Maurice on Manhattan's streets. She tells the story of how both lives were changed by their now-31 yr. relationship. It will help us explore our own thoughts and feelings about overcoming obstacles in our childhood (both Laura and Maurice had difficult childhoods, Maurice's more so than hers) and helping those with less than we have . . . when is it merely assuaging our own guilt vis-a-vis true giving out of love. The title comes from an ancient Chinese proverb: "An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, and circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle. But it will never break."

Yoga Class with Judith Carman at 10 am!! The class is in Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian Church. Cost $50.00 for 6 weeks. Call Charlotte Gaw with any questions.

Communion servers gather at 10:30 am to prepare and pray before serving Communion.
