Brainstorming Meeting…We Need Your Input
We are looking for a few hungry creative people to come together and brainstorm/share ideas to help us plan our Fall Harvest Soup/Sandwich/Dessert Supper! It is on the church calendar for Wednesday, October 12th, a little over 3 months away. If you have some great soup recipes, some good ideas for what goes with a warm bowl of soup, a sandwich and dessert, or simply love to eat, we would love to have you come and help us plan the details of this event. We will be meeting on Wednesday, July 6th at 6:30 PM in Fellowship Hall. If you like, bring your favorite soup recipes and any other great ideas, or just come and help us plan our first annual Fall Harvest Soup Supper! We would love to have your input and expertise! Questions? Call Cheri @ church 336-1649 or 330-6668.

Martha Circle Ladies
We are scheduled for our Bingo party with the residents at PRIDE GROUP of OKOBOJI, for Wednesday, July 20th at 1:00 PM. All we have to do is sit with the residents and help them with their BINGO cards. (Most are very capable of playing by themselves, but we try to help monitor their cards!) We play until everyone has won (approximately 45 min. to an hour) then we will serve refreshments to them. Please contact Charlene Radcliffe at 330-6668 if you are able to join them.
Women’s Bible Study
The Women’s Bible Study held on Wednesday evenings at 6pm will continue through the summer. They will be studying 1 & 2 Peter, and will continue to be led by Rachelle Gewecke.
Action Group for Communications and Marketing
We need to enhance our marketing and communications with our members, visitors, and the general public. We will work with the staff on the web site and other internet possibilities, coordinate bulletin covers with a sermon series, and make greater use of our electronic message board. There is a need to increase the attendance at the second service and let people know of the opportunity to attend a contemporary worship service.
Contact Steve Lindeberg if interested in this action group at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mission Trip Parent/Student Meeting
All parents and those participating in the Triennium mission trip are asked to join Pastor Michael on July 10th at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall for a short informational meeting.

Please make sure to add the short informational meeting to your calendars and we look forward to seeing you there!
