Thanks to Bible School volunteers, parents and kids on Crocodile Dock!  We extend two special ‘thank-yous.’  First, thanks to Kari Jones as Bible School director for planning, organizing and recruiting.  And, thanks to the Pea Ridge Community Church of Philadelphia, MO for sharing stage props and other materials from their Bible School.
The Annual Fall Meetings move to September 20 & 21 with Dave Boshart, pastor of the West Union Mennonite Church of Parnell, IA.  The date change is to help Dave with his travel and ministry schedule.
Today’s message will quickly review last week’s “A Family Fight From the Bible” and continue a three-week Bible story series about families with “Living With Disappointments in Your Family” while the August 23rd message will feature “Eldercare in Your Family.”
The pastor will return to the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center near Chicago this week for study in leadership and self-perspective and church health.  He will leave tomorrow morning and return on Thursday evening.
