The six-week “Blitz the Budget” campaign is in full swing. We have already received more than $26,000 in pledges and actual gifts. Thank you to those of you who have already responded generously as we close the budget deficit and continue the exciting ministries that are supported by your commitment.

Due to the rising cost of flowers and gas prices, our florist must increase her prices for our worship flowers. The new cost of $50 will go into effect on Sunday, August 17. If you have already paid for flowers please send a check for $13.36 to cover the difference. If you have not paid for your flowers and you feel this price is too high, please contact Lisa Boxley in the church office (288-5452) to have your name removed from the list.
Do you have DVDs you would be willing to lend the Alamanah (widow support and fellowship group) women? Sadly, all the movie rental stores have closed and it has become harder for them to find movies to rent. Please contact Doris Mengel at 294-5207 if you are willing to share movies for their viewing pleasure.
We are collecting shoes! Any size is welcome as long as they don’t have holes. The shoes will help BackPack Beginnings raise funds to provide needy students with school uniforms and support developing countries. Call Kim Row (288-5452) for more information.
