Christmas is right around the corner! We’ll be celebrating Christmas in July on July 19 with a fun-filled morning:
  • Christmas brunch. Come to church early at 9:00 a.m. and start your day with a Christmas brunch.
  • Tribute to Jim blood drive. We will hold our semi-annual blood drive honoring Jim Fawks this morning. Get in the gift-giving mood by giving the gift of life. The blood drive runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You can sign up online. If you are unable to donate blood, consider bring a 48 oz. bottle of cooking oil for the GRACE Food Pantry.
  • School supplies for our angels. We are providing school supplies to area foster children through Upbring’s Christmas in July program. Upbring, the new name for Lutheran Social Services, provided us the names of 25 “angels,” foster children from ages 4-18. Please choose a child from the angel tree, purchase a backpack and the listed school supplies, and bring the backpacks to church on July 19—Upbring will give them out at a back-to-school bash.
  • Christmas carols which were nominated by members as their favorite hymns will be sung during the worship service this day.
  • VBS kickoff. Rock On! Vacation Bible School for ages 5-10 begins on Monday, July 20, at 9:00 a.m. The VBS counselors from Briarwood will be at our Christmas in July day to meet the students and get everyone ready to “Rock On!” (you can still sign up for VBS—forms are available online.
