Make our next sermon series a family event: On July 3 we are starting a new series of messages called Summer Fruit. We will be looking at each of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. The children will be exploring the same topic as their parents in their Kids’ Up classes. A book called Fruit Full, by Christie Thomas, would be a great companion book for you and your family. It has devotions that allow parents to interact with their children each day about the “fruit of the week.” Order the book on Amazon soon if you want to join the fun. (NOTE: The book has ten devotions on each topic. Select seven of the ten to stay in sync with the series. If you want to do the valuable introductory devotions in the book, launch your study a week prior to the start of the series.)

Offerings: Each week we hold an offering for a cause and for budget. This week the offering is for UCB Canada, next Sunday, June 19 the offering will be for Belleville Pregnancy & Family Care Centre.

Figures from last Sunday’s offering will be delayed a week because of a staff retreat and funeral. Watch for the report in next week’s bulletin.
