Your help is needed
This year the Refugee Resettlement program has welcomed 600 new Americans. In the next few months there will be an additional 200 from Somalia, the Congo, Syria and Iraq being welcomed. Look for an article in the upcoming All of Us listing things needed and where to put them. Other Liverpool area churches will be asked to help too.
This is a new initiative for the Dinner/Fund-raising Committee to assist the church programming budget. Limited to less than 100 halves – when they are gone, they are gone. “Sides” available for 50 cents each. You may RESERVE your chicken halves now by signing up at the table in Fellowship Hall and PAY AT PICK-UP. This is a THURSDAY afternoon drive-through BBQ in the rear parking lot. Volunteers needed — Please check your planners to see if you can help on Aug. 10–11. Volunteer sheets are in Fellowship Hall.

Invitation to pray
Prayer Partners invite you to be a part of the group that meets Mondays at the church, from 3 to 4 p.m. Learning how to call on God in prayer is one way that we develop our relationship with God. We receive requests from many different sources and for many different needs, such as healing, comfort, strength, wisdom, protection, etc. If you are interested please call Pamela Phillips at 451‑1087 or Barb Halstead at 622‑0752.

The need is increasing because there are consistent numbers of children that are removed from their home weekly and bigger sibling groups involved. Social workers use the toys to calm the children during the interview process which is extremely traumatic. You can be assured that your generous heart is making a difference.
