Sit in the generous sunshine of summer —
A bright blue sky overhead.
Join millions of leaves.
Join grasses and trees.
Soak up the warmth from
Pause in the generous sunshine
Look for a cool, clear brook.
Rest in the shade
That summer has made.
Rest and refresh the soul.
Bask in the generous sunshine of summer.
Indulge in its timelessness — the quiet unfolding of nature itself,
Beauty transcends the earth, and leads to eternal worth!

3 MISSION SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
This year again a CCH crew will be at Yates Village serving lunches to hungry kids. Thank you Corinne for organizing us for so many years.
If you have extra garden produce this summer, or know people who will, please bring it to the church. We will be gathering in all summer to share with neighbors at the Bethesda House food bank. Someone is in the office Saturday mornings from 9-11, bring it to worship on Sunday morning or other times by arrangement. Church phone 346-1900. Susan Strang 491-8135
marks our first time sending a crew to serve at the Regional Food Bank in Latham. So far 10 have signed up. They have sit down jobs as well as standing jobs. The plan is to go once a month with everyone bringing their calendars so we can pick the next shift before we leave the food bank that night. This is of course on an as able basis. It should be fun and eye opening about this wonderful ministry. If you want to know more details ask Bree Koetzner who goes once a week on her own.
Would you like to knit or quilt come prepared to learn and help. Thursday evening at 6:30PM. Or talk to Susan or Cathy.
COMPUTER TRAINING FOR THE PROJECTOR +++
We need several people to know how to manage the projector in church, Cathy Quick has done this work so far but in the long run she deserves a chance to just come and worship. If you are willing to take a turn managing the computer during church please let her know. Training is certainly available!
Cathy is available on Saturdays to teach anyone interested. Call me at 495-6923 as to when you want to come.
