Bulletin for Sunday, August 7
20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.
24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Meet Our New Kids Ministry Coordinator!
Beth Belford is the mom of two wild and crazy boys, Elliot (5) and Sullivan (almost 2), and she’s married to her favorite IT nerd, David. She is super excited to serve our families and put her administrative ninja skills to use.
Give her a hug and welcome her aboard! (She won’t mind; she’s an extrovert.)

Back-2-School Block Party Sign-up (8/26)
Each year, we put on a Back-to-School Block Party, where we put up bounce houses, make free food for the community, and give away hundreds of bags of school supplies. It is one of the most fun things we do all year. BUT, it can’t happen without lots of volunteers. And so, on Friday, August 26, we will need all hands on deck!
Please sign up for a spot and help make sure it is an amazing day!
