PICTORIAL DIRECTORY                    

We still are in the process of taking pictures for our new Pictorial Directory.  If you haven’t signed up yet, please sign the list on the bulletin board and have your family’s picture taken so our new directory will be as complete a reflection of those who regularly worship here as possible, including non-members.  If you have any questions, please contact Brad Schrum, Joyce Slatt or Kay Sowinski who are taking the photographs.


   Teachers are needed during the next year.  If you would like to help, please sign the list on the hallway bulletin board across from Brad’s office.

    We still need a few men to lead a class discussion during this summer’s Wednesday Adult Series.  If you are willing to teach, please contact Brian Games for dates and topics.


All the members are welcome to borrow tables and chairs for private use.  However, we do request that you sign the list on the bulletin board in the secretary’s office before taking them and upon returning them.  Please do not take any of the padded chairs or any of the tables in the MP Room.  The brown topped tables stored in the basement hallway are available for use.


We received word last week that the representative from Potter Children’s Home won’t be in St.C. until this coming Thursday.  So the new deadline for bringing the items is this coming Wednesday evening.  Please bring any of the following items and place them on the table across from Everett’s office: 13 gallon kitchen trash bags; water; Spray & Shout Stain Remover; canned whole tomatoes and canned refried beans. If you would like to donate cash for fresh foods, please give the money to Everett by Wednesday evening.


    The little word “must” is often forgotten in today’s religious society, but the New Testament used the Greek word for “must” nearly one hundred times.  Christianity makes demands on us, and there are things we must do.  In next week’s lesson, “The ‘Musts’ of Christianity,” Phil Sanders will look at some of those demands.  Locally the nationally televised program can be seen Sundays at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
