*God’s blessings to all and a special welcome to all guests visiting with us today. What a joy it is to be in God’s presence and worship together.

*This week we begin collecting School Supplies items needed for our August 17th Block Party and School Supply Giveaway. The needed supplies are on slips and posted on a bulletin board in the narthex. Take a few slips and scout out those sales.

* We will need lots of volunteers for the Block Party and School Supply Giveaway that runs from 10 am to 1 pm on August 17th. We hope you will plan to help before or during the event or help with clean up. Look for sign-up sheets NEXT weekend. It is both meaningful and fun time! God’s Work. Our Hands.

*Thanks to all who have brought in cereal for the St. Mark’s Food Bank. We will continue to collect cereal for the month of July. All contributions will be appreciated.

*Pastor Alessandri final chapter Holy Land presentation is TODAY after worship. It has been moved from the Adult Sunday School room to the air-conditioned Gathering Room. Come for refreshments, fellowship and pictures of the last two days of Pastor’s tour of Jerusalem. All are welcome.

*During the summer months, Haven has a Harvest for Hunger table. Pick up any vegetables, baked goods or flowers for a free will offering. Bring extra items from your garden or oven to donate. All donated monies will be used for projects to battle hunger.

*Wonder what PLARNING is? It is making yarn from plastic grocery bags and using it to make sleeping mats for the homeless. Come on July 25th to learn more about this new hands-on ministry. No experience necessary.
