July Worship with UBC
For the month of July we will join with our friends at University Baptist Church for Sunday worship. On July 1 and 8 we will meet at UBC: 1219 University Av. SE. On July 15 and 22 we will meet together at First Church. All services begin at 10:00 am. We will have a pick-up choir on July 22 – all are welcome to join! Rehearsal t 9:00 am that morning at First Church.
All Church Work Day!
Saturday, July 14 from 10:00-2:00. come when you can during the day to help spruce up the church building inside and out! We will have jobs for all ages and abilities. We would also love help getting rid of or recycling some of items and properly disposing of some toxic materials (electronics, paint cans). If you have even a few minutes you could stop by to haul some stuff away. If you have a truck and can haul some larger items, please talk with Brad. Lunch will be provided for volunteers.
Please consider playing an instrument and/or singing during the summer services. As you know, our adult choir takes “vacation” between Memorial Day and Labor Day. You are welcome and encouraged to share your musical talents. Please speak with Jayson Engquist (or leave a message) about scheduling a Sunday. He can be reached at: email@example.com or 914-649-0844. The adult choir will resume rehearsals sometime in the Fall. Watch for details.
