Happy Independence Day or Fourth of July. I know that by the time you read this, July 4th will be over with, but we hope you had an enjoyable and safe day.
If you've missed seeing my article in the Brazil Times the last few weeks it's because we have been on vacation. We're back home now and ready to get back on some kind of schedule.
Obviously, I haven't attended Bee Ridge Church lately due to our vacation out of state. So, I'm not sure if anything new is going on. I do know there are some projects in the planning stages. So please keep checking the paper each Saturday to see what new things could be developing at our church.
Special thanks to the Community Choir's performance at Bee Ridge Church on July 1. There is certainly a lot of talent in that group. Sorry I missed it.
We welcome you to visit us at Bee Ridge Church at 10100 N. Kennedy's Crossing Rd. Sunday School starts at 9:30 a.m. Church starts at 10:30 a.m. Hope to see you Sunday

EASTSIDE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Greetings again from Eastside Christian Church. Well, July the 4th has come and gone, so they say summer is half over. I hope you had a good day. Most of us had quite a stormy ending to the day. God made his own fireworks, which can be pretty awesome at times.
The attendance at our service last Sunday was a little down, but that is expected in the summer with vacations and all, but our praise to the Lord was great. It was good to see Imogene Harms with us. Along with all the other prayers that need to be said, please pray for our country, its leaders and those who are fighting for freedom everywhere. We are a blessed people, and we need to thank God everyday for that.
Pastor Bill and his family are on a well deserved vacation. We will have guest speakers for the next two Sundays. Come hear the word of God with us from some special people.
Our Sunday School is at 9:30 a.m., which consists of classes for all ages. Worship is at 10:30 a.m., and a children's worship is provided for ages 3-7.
Our church is located directly behind Hardee's on Church Street. We would love to see you. Until next time, God bless you.

What a clean-up crew showed up last Saturday! Thanks to Pete Taylor, we did not have to paint the new window frames as we thought because he sneaked in and painted them all on Friday night. So we got the curtains hung, the barn cleaned out, the Karnival things put in the barn, and the Christmas things put in the Karnival closet, cleaned a storeroom out, and rearranged the video library. How's that for a morning's work!
It takes a lot of work to keep a place in good shape, but when a number of good workers volunteer, it isn't work; it's fun and fellowship.
We were pleased to have Cathy Craig feeling better and back with us again. We just hope that her husband Jerry will be feeling better and can join us this Sunday.
It was also great to have Jane Atkinson back with us. She has been visiting her son's family in Detroit.
People are signing up to contribute their time, money, and energy to making our Church In The Park a success. If you haven't signed up to help yet, please do so. It is going to be Saturday, July 21, at 4 p.m. at the Carbon Park. There will be games, a three-on-three basketball tournament, hot dogs and all the fixings, watermelon, and plenty of food.
Steve Barrows will be there to talk about his faith walk. He is the assistant coach at ISU. He may have some of his players with him. The Church In The Park is not just for "church people"; it is for everyone who wishes to join us for the afternoon. So bring your lawn chairs and come for a good old-fashioned picnic!
Our 50th Annual Homemade Ice Cream Social is just five weeks away on Aug. 10 from 4:30-7 p.m. Put it on your calendar!
