Welcome!!
It is always wonderful to share worship time with our friends from Northminster and we welcome them this morning. Our guest co-liturgist is Martha Babcock, the chair of the Worship Committee at Northminster, and also a member of their Interim Pastoral Search Committee. A special thanks to Martha and Jim Meinershagen for meeting and planning our service today!

We are also pleased to welcome Jason Morgan to the pulpit. We’re happy to have you back!

WORSHIP HIGHLIGHTS
~Sunday, June 4th: The Day of Pentecost – Celebrate the Birthday of the Church
We will welcome to the pulpit, The Rev. Dr. Kathryn Thoresen who will also lead us in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Kate leads a faith community in ministries for Foster Care children and youth. Our deacons have supported this program.

~Sunday, June 11th: We will again welcome Jason Morgan to our pulpit. Jason is always someone we like to hear and have with us leading worship.

Summer [June] English Workshop Needs More Volunteers!
I am delighted to say that, so far, we have 20 students registered for Saturday mornings and 20 students for Tuesday afternoons in the Summer English Workshop.
Students in the Beginner classes need more one on one, or small group help than the Intermediate and Advanced level students. Therefore, we could use more volunteers.

Here are the class meeting dates and times:
Saturdays: June 3, 10, 17 and 24 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Tuesdays: June 6, 13, 20 and 27 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Please see Karen Lake, Nancy Sisunik, or Leanne Prescott, if you would like to help us BE the church in our community.

Cereal For Summer!
Soon our children will be finishing another year of school. For many children, this means they may go without enough food to eat. The Presbytery’s Hunger Ministries Program is asking for our help. We will be collecting: breakfast bars, juice boxes, cereal and small boxes of raisins. Every box you donate will be given to families in need by our church partners through their food programs.
Please bring in your items by June 11th. They will be delivered to the Presbytery office on June 12th. Thank you for helping to keep our children fed.

Thank you!
Ann and Bill give thanks to everyone who helped to make the arrangements for Betty Brunner’s service and lunch. It took many of you to be present and open to making this a time of remembrance for Bob, family and friends. Many thanks for making the church a welcome place.

Also…
Thank you to everyone who donated money for flowers to be planted outside of the church! And thank you to Nancy Sisunik for all of your efforts to buy the flowers, plant them and maintain them all summer! We appreciate it!

Pictures Needed!
Do you have any old magazines or calendars with pictures? They’re needed for the Summer English Workshop. Please see Nancy Sisunik or Karen Lake if you have any you can spare! “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Blood Drive
Our next church blood drive will take place on Monday, July 10th. For donors who wish to donate here on that day, please know that the Red Cross requires 8 weeks between blood donations, so you will not be able to donate at another location now.

Volunteer Opportunity in Troy!
