for your cooperation. 


Summer Worship Attire 

Please feel free to come for worship dressed in comfortable summer outfits that are appropriate for worship. 

Always remember that "come as you are" is not a statement that applies to how we look - it applies to the 

state of our souls. Let us honor the Lord and the Lord's house in our choice of attire! Please remember that 

with the addition of the ceiling fans, the sanctuary is cooler. 


Parking Lot Safety 

Please make sure to lock your car and put valuables out of sight when attending worship or ministry meet- 

ings. Report any suspicious activity to one of the Greeters or Ushers immediately. Be wise and be safe. 


Financial Contributions 

If you are planning to be away during the summer months please remember to leave your contribution or 

remember to present your gift upon your return. During your absence the expenses of the church continue 

and your consistent support is needed to make the ministry of the church possible. Thank you for caring 

enough to share. Have a safe and restful vacation.
