Come prepared to learn God’s view of the disadvantaged, and ways you maybe able to serve in the multi-faceted Tree of Life community outreach.
Info Meeting for the Greenhouse Ministry Trip
A group is traveling to Normandy, France in October to learn more about the Evangelical Greenhouse ministry which we support financially. In previous years, we have sent work teams but this year’s purpose is to catch the ministry’s vision. Anyone interested in going is encouraged to attend a meeting on July 19, 3:00 p.m. at the home of Kimberly Gleason. Please RSVP to Kimberly Gleason (703-967-9300) or Francesca Edling (703-431-8627).
Changes in Our Library
Our Church library is being reorganized. Feel free to use it, just realize that things might be in new locations. Our system is being revised into Dewey Decimal order. Look for updates on our collection of library materials to be coming soon! And for those who didn’t even know we have a great library, it’s in Room 104 in the lower level. Check it out!!
The Family Foundation of Virginia has provided copies of their 2014-2015 Virginia General Assembly Report Card. To get informed before the next election, pick up copies on the foyer table.
Prayer & Praise
Please be in prayer for the final set of 5-Day Backyard Bible Clubs next week in Purcellville, Lucketts, Berryville and Round Hill. Continue in prayer next week for all involved, for children to come, and for hearts to hear the gospel. Over 100 kids have attended in the last two weeks.
Pastor Jack continued in our “Hope for Living” series in I Thessalonians 2:17-3:13, as we were encouraged by Paul’s commendation of the “steady” people in the Thessalonian church. Be encouraged by downloading “The Steady”
