donation to the Mpolonjeni, Africa project.
most of you know our youth are sponsoring a village
in Swaziland, Mpolonjeni, Africa, one of the hardest
hit areas by AIDS. One way that we are trying
to raise funds is to collect pennies every Sunday
before and after worship. If you would like to
bring your pennies (other coins will work too)
our youth will be glad to take them off your hands.
We will be collecting through August. Please continue
to help us “stretch” our pennies to
reach out and touch this village. THIS SUNDAY
WILL BE THE LAST WE WILL BE COLLECTING PENNIES,
SO BRING THOSE PENNIES (OTHER CHANGE WELCOME TOO!).

we hope to make this directory the best ever.
Appointments are still available for August 27
and 28, and September 6, 7, and 8. Call the church
office to make your appointment. The directory

I Love Mpolonjeni T- Shirts are available in the
church office. The cost is a $10 donation (or
more) to our Africa project.
In 1935 Mrs. Charles Davis, a member of the church,
donated a painting which was a copy of Hofmann’s
“Christ in Gethsemane”. It was hung
over the choir loft. New pews were installed and
a new Hammond organ was purchased.

I am looking for some quilters who might be willing
and able to donate their time to make a quilt
to be raffled off for our Relay for Life team
next year. I have my Relay T-Shirts and would
donate them for the project. Another team did
this last year. The quilt was beautiful and it
raised a lot of money for Relay. Anyone interested,
please contact Carolyn Jones at 934-7742.
