The readings for this coming Sunday. This summer we have two choices for the lectionary and we will be following Tract 1. This tract allows us to hear consecutive stories from scripture over the weeks rather than hearing things that may perhaps be a bit more disjointed.

Come and join us in celebrating St. Clare’s Day with an Old-Fashioned, Ice Cream Social! After the service on August 14th, we will gather outside (weather permitting) to enjoy a “sundae on Sunday.” There will be a sign-up sheet for volunteer scoopers, and for some folks to help people (who would like help) to add the toppings of their choice. We hope to see you there!

Youth Group News The Youth Group is planning a couple of work parties to prepare their new Youth Room space. They’ll be prepping on August 6th from noon to 3pm and painting on August 28th after church. Please contact Julia Richman at or Sheila Strehle at for more details. The hike for August 7th has been postponed, but come on the 14th for the ice cream social! An email was sent out to all parents. If you didn’t receive one, please let Julia or Sheila know.

Valley Renewal Summer Program I’m passing this on to you all in the event you would like to help out. This is the organization that sponsors the Winter Shelter. As Rick Woodruff said on Sunday, they are now offering a meal and services at the American Legion Post this summer on Monday, Thursday, & Friday.
