Greetings, church family,

BIBLE ENCOURAGEMENT: "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, rejoice." (Philippians 4:4: NIV) 

FAMILY LIFE WEEKEND: Our family life weekend begins this Friday at 7 pm with Dr. David Sedlacek and will conclude on Sabbath morning during our 11 am worship experience. Potluck will follow immediately afterward. 

DISTRICT MEETING W/ OHIO CONFERENCE: On July 20, our OH conference president, Bob Cundiff, will be at Toledo First to meet with all OH conference churches in the Northwest about some exciting stewardship plans at Camp Mohaven. The time is 7:00 pm. 

MINISTRY VACANCIES: Below in the newsletter are a few ministry areas in our church that have openings. Please take a look at them, and if you are interested in learning more about any of them, contact me. 

PRAYER: Continue to pray for those on our prayer list. Some new ones added this week are the Muniz family, who are grieving the loss of their son Evan (see below how you can help), Peggy Wolfson's son, Dan, who lost his wife, and more. 

Blessings to you, and as always, if I can assist you and your family, please let me know.
