Today’s Sermon Learn of Me: Studies in Matthew
Matthew 17:1-27 “Drawing Back the Curtain”

As we focus on the TeenServe outreach coming in July, please continue to pray for this endeavor. Please be praying for the around 200 teens coming to Pine Island, that any who aren’t believers would come to faith, and that those who are believers would commit to grow as disciples. Pray for the residents whose homes will be worked on. And pray for our area, that people would be drawn to the kingdom of God. Pastor Pat

As plans progress and the weeks fly by, the TeenServe 2019 outreach needs your help to prepare the homes that the youth will be working on!
Can you help with these needs?
• pressure washers
• people to do the pressure washing of the homes in preparation for painting
• people to paint the peaks of the homes
This part of the prep work needs to be done the end of June and early July, prior to the outreach week, July 7 – 13. If you can help with any of these needs, please talk with Mary Frutiger as soon as possible so she can get these details scheduled. Thanks!

Now is the time to apply for camp! And, Praise God! Camp Lebanon had record enrollment last year and is on track to exceed that this year! REGISTER SOON to be sure you get a spot. There are camps for Grades 1-12 plus Family Camp. Schedules are available on the info table in the entry. Visit to register! (Scholarships are available from NLC to help with costs. See Lisa in the office before registering online.)
Buy One/Get One! If your child is new to camp, he or she can bring a friend along for free! Both must be first-time campers and attending the same week. See Lisa for the forms and coupon.

More help is needed to keep the kitchen & bathrooms clean each week and the Sunday morning coffee flowing! Please talk to Judy Smith to serve in these areas. (With enough helpers you are only on the schedule once a month or so.) Thanks!

Young Adult Fellowship will meet at 6:30 tonight.

Please Remember – if you wish to borrow tables, chairs, etc. from church for an event, they need to be reserved and ‘checked out’ to you. Contact Lisa in the office.
