"Back to School Sunday":  Sunday, August 3.  Remembering that a new school year is financially hard on many Memphis families, we will be collecting school supplies for students at Frayser Elementary school.  They need markers, pencils, LOTS of glue sticks, crayons, folders with brads, and wide-ruled notebook paper.  Please remember these items as you see the back to school sales and may be out shopping for your own kids.  You may bring the supplies on July 27 and August 3.

To celebrate our own kids going back to school, we will gather at 10:00 am on Sunday, August 3 for lots of donuts and juice, and we'll make magnets with the names of our students, which the adults will take home as reminders to pray for our students this school year.  Please encourage your kids to bring their backpacks or diaper bags to church that morning also.  Pastor Julie will bless them during the worship service.  We look forward to celebrating our return to school on August 3!

Wolf River Canoe Trip:  Saturday, August 9.  Plan on meeting at 10:00 am at the put-in site (exact location TBA).  Everyone should bring a picnic lunch, bug spray, sun screen, and any medicine they may need, especially if they are allergic to insect stings.  If you are interested, you must reserve your own boat.  To reserve a canoe or kayak, please call or e-mail Mark Babb of Ghost River Canoes at 901-485-1220 or  Please let KC Warren or the church office know after you make your boat reservations so she can know who is going with us.  Float on!

Remember Your Pledges and Offerings!  Our busy schedules sometimes keep us from being in worship every Sunday, but the work (and expenses!) of the church continue throughout the year.  Please remember to keep your pledges and offerings current.
