Changing of the guard:  all those who signed up for cleaning various areas of the church in May should be on duty now.  Thanks to those who did a good job in March and April.  If you’ need a reminder or haven’t signed up yet, please check the cleaning schedule on the bulletin board just outside the library.  Remember that our volunteering to clean is enabling the church to financially support  our youth ministry, Zero Gravity.

We have at least 6 children planning to go to Christian camp for a week this summer.  Hurrah!  But we are in need of more scholarship funds for them (approx. $400 more is needed).  If you would like to make a donation to this fund, please designate it on your check or on an envelope: Camp Scholarship Fund. Thank you!

Thursday is the National Day of Prayer.  There is a service at noon at the Cooperstown Court House.

June 10-14 are the dates for Vacation Bible School, “Hometown Nazareth,” this summer.  Please mark your calendars and watch for a meeting of volunteers soon.
