LOOP SYSTEM ~ THANK YOU
On behalf of the Communications Evangelism Team, thank you to those who donated funds to help pay for the new Loop System. We have received more than what was needed and those funds will carryover to future projects for video/sound needs within the church. We appreciate the support from the congregation for this vital project for our brothers and sisters with hearing loss. We also thank Dale Weygandt for his time and energy in getting this system installed.
Melody Costello and Bobby Forsythe,
Celebrate World Bicycle Day, June 3
with a ride on the Chippewa Inlet Trail. This trail is about 3 miles; relatively flat and safe. We will meet at Buckeye Woods Park for 5:30pm; Pastor Steve will have a blessing of the bikes; and we’ll ride the path south to Chippewa Road. From there, we’ll ride to the home of Howard and Kris Wolff in Chippewa Lake for pizza, snacks and drinks.
