CHILDREN’S SERMON   Children ages 3 years old through 5th grade are invited to attend the children’s sermon every Sunday during the 10 o’clock service.  The children follow the crucifer and teachers (after the Gospel reading) to St. Mary’s Hall for children’s sermon.   The children return during the post-sermon hymn to be with their parents for the remainder of the service.


Beginning next Sunday, July 2nd we will worship together at one service only at 9:00am.  During the month of July we will celebrate Holy Eucharist Rite I and in August Holy Eucharist Rite II.  We will have music each Sunday, no choir. 


All are welcome to join for tea, lemonade and fellowship on the front lawn of the church  beginning Sunday, July 2nd   immediately following the 9am worship service. 

Your help is needed to host times of fellowship and refreshments on the front lawn.  It’s easy and it’s fun!   We set up the tables, you provide the lemonade, iced tea and cookies/muffins and host with a smile.  A sign up is posted on the bulletin board for you to let us know which Sunday you’re available to help. 

MIDWEEK SERVICES   There are no midweek services throughout the summer.  Midweek services will resume in September.

2nd ANNUAL MICHAEL MOTLEY MEMORIAL FISHING TRIP We had another successful fishing trip to Hyannis, Massachusetts this year on the weekend of June 9th. A fantastic time was had by all. Due to a very generous anonymous donation, this time the trip cost each of us about half the normal rate. We also had a raffle for a free fishing pole that was won by Aiden Peterson - congrats to Aiden! We're looking forward to this annual trip again next year and welcome all your suggestions to continue to make this such a resounding success. 

Thanks to all from the Seeney family
