THIS SUNDAY:
This Sunday we continue with our summer worship schedule.  There will be one service beginning at 10 a.m., that includes elements of both worship services.  Coffee hour will follow!

UPCOMING EVENTS:
LABOR DAY RETREAT
All are invited to join us for the All-Church Retreat at Camp Tuttle over Labor Day weekend!  The theme is “Rock Solid” and we’ll be enjoying some new activities, as well as old favorites.  Look for the flyer and RSVP form now available online, in the office or in Fellowship Hall.

2018-2019 YEAR:
The school year might seem far away, but as we approach August I am thinking hard about our upcoming year in Children's Ministry.  To that end, I have two important things to share with you.  First, a copy of the CM Calendar for the upcoming year.  Second, in the spirit of "nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something" I have created an interests and talents survey for the coming year.

I invite you all to fill it out...there is no commitment attached, it is designed to inform me and the CM Committee who might be interested or willing to do certain small volunteer tasks through the year.  We will refer to it when planning things like the Halloween Party, Mardi Gras and Sunday School as a place to start when looking for helpers.  And remember, I am not interested in a few people doing everything to support our youngest members… but if we each do something small, we make a big difference in their growing faith.

THIS WEEK:
We had a handful of third and fourth graders spend the week at Camp Tuttle enjoying fun, fellowship and growing in God's love. They learned about themselves and the Lord while playing in God's beautiful creation in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

For those who are at home and looking for something fun to do, it has been suggested that we create a database of easy summer boredom busters to share.  So, if you or your kids have a favorite summer activity that is easy to do, email me and tell me about it.  I'll post all the ideas in next week's email and on the church website...so next time you're faced with the groan "we don't know what to do!" you'll have a treasure trove of ideas!

Here is one of my favorite summer activities that James and I enjoy: ice cube painting!  Put some coloring in some water in an ice cube tray, add a popsicle stick and freeze.  Then paint to your hearts delight!

Today!  Thursday, March 22nd, 5:30 - 6:30PM in Fellowship Hall.  Refreshments and childcare provided.  While most gun owners store their firearms responsibly, nearly 1.7 million children in the U.S. live in homes with unsecured guns.  Too often, when an unsupervised child gets his or her hands on a gun, tragedies result---including unintentional shootings, suicides, and homicides.  With the goal of starting the conversation about responsible gun storage in our community, Emily Rainey will present on the Be SMART campaign which outlines simple steps that all adults -- whether they own guns or not -- can take to keep our children safer.
