Everyone is encouraged to attend a potluck after the 2nd service to hear news about their ministry. Please bring your best main dish for 10 AND a salad or dessert.

Praise & Prayer
Remember to pray for our Road to Romania Team. Pray for safekeeping, good health, and abundant impact for God’s Kingdom. This coming week they are finishing up their greenhouse projects and VBS in the public parks, as well as getting ready to return home on July 3.

Just as God the Father blessed God the Son in Matthew 3:17, fathers should bless their children. Let your kids know that you love them and are proud of them. And for everyone, know that if you are in Christ, God the Father looks down at you and says, “This is my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased.” Click here to download “The Father’s Blessing”.
