NOTICES

1. In July and August during coffee hour, offerings of coins will be accepted for Mennonite Central Committee’s Circles of Support and Accountability, which greatly reduces the odds of sexual offenders reoffending following release from prison.

2. Service opportunity: the demolition stage of church basement renovations with Hochma, Montreal, an emerging church within Mennonite Church Eastern Canada in an under resourced part of old Montreal.
This week a group of three or four is going. The week of August 6th is another tentative possibility. If you can help at these or other times please contact Keith Wagler or Pastor Steve. If you’d like to contribute toward travel and other expenses, please designate gifts for “Hochma service trip.”

3. Jam collection for Agape Fellowship in London. Bring donations of store bought jam, including sugar free, and place in the box by the church mailboxes. Questions – speak to Melody Steinman.
