3. Refreshments: Nothing formal but please sign up in the foyer to serve cookies and lemonade.


4. Religious Education: No formal program, but sign-up board is in the foyer for members to sign up to provide children's activities.


5. Staff: Rev. Chip on vacation but contact office for emergencies 479-4131.


6.  Newsletter:  Will be published every other Thursday, starting July  12, then on July 26, August 9, August 23, and then back to normal schedule on September 6.  Deadline Monday 8pm prior to publication date.
