A Hugh “Thank You” goes to all who helped with our Summer Sale and Crabmeat Luncheon held this weekend.  Our Christmas Fairs and Summer Sales take a lot of manpower to put them together and stay committed throughout the entire two days.  It is time consuming but much appreciated.  This bulletin is being typed before the sale starts but with faith and God’s Powerful Hands we will come out with a Great SALE!   


Missions is asking for help to keep the food basket located across the street in the school bus shelter supplied with food items for the community.  For June would you please bring in peanut butter and jelly or jams. You can drop them off in the Community Food Basket across the street or the basket in the back of the Sanctuary.



Anyone new or if your address, phone number or email has changed let Arlene Gagnon or Deanna Mosher Hallett know so the registers are correct.                                




Announcement Sheets for the Deacon of the Day are on the back table.
