Our thanks to Dena Minor and to all the teachers, helpers, and "kitchen crew" who made Vacation Bible School such a success. We especially want to thank all the young folks for sharing their songs with us last Sunday morning. As a missions' project, over 500 food items were collected for the Staunton Food Pantry.
Happy Birthday greetings go out to David Martin. We welcome Tiffany Salin into our fellowship as she placed her membership with our congregation last Sunday.
