New Organ Preparation

The new organ is scheduled to arrive on Monday, August 11.  We need volunteers to help STRIP the paint for the existing organ pipes to prepare them for re-painting.  In addition, we need several people with carpentry skills to assist John Luck in rebuilding the speaker shelves.  Please contact Richard Cross at Vaapcoinc@aol.com and let him know whether you are available during the day or evening the week of August 11-15 and beyond.

SUMMER FAMILY CHOIR in AUGUST 

 During the month of August the Chancel Choir will take a hiatus and enjoy sitting in the congregation for a change of perspective while we have a Family Choir as we did last year.  This choir will practice during Sunday School time in the chancel.  It is open to children, youth, their family members, and anyone else who is a member of a family.  That means everyone in the congregation is invited to participate.  We had a great experience with this last August and look forward to this choir providing worship leadership again.  Again, do not worry if you cannot be present every Sunday of August.  Just come whenever you can.
