Happy Birthday to Phyllis Michelson!
Everyone is invited to celebrate Phyllis Michelson's 90th Birthday tomorrow after noon at church!  The party is from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Saturday, August 1.  Come kick up your heels and wish Phyllis another wonderful year!
Drive Out Malaria Golf Tournament!
On Saturday, August 1, our district is hosting a Golf Tournament to benefit Imagine No Malaria, a global campaign to eradicate malaria from the globe.  Since Imagine No Malaria began, the death rate from malaria has been cut in half. That's amazing, and we're only 2/3 of the way to our goal!  Imagine what we can do if we keep going!

Even if you're not a golfer, this will be a fun event to see!  There will be a silent auction and other food and activities.  It will be a great time to see United Methodists from around Vancouver!

Email Pastor Meredith for details on how to register.
Youth Worship this Sunday!
Our youth group team is back from Sierra Service Project, and they're going to share their reflections during the service.  

Come to support them!  Our young people need to know they are not alone, but part of a loving community.
Come to be encouraged!  Our young people are passionate and committed to being a positive force in the world.
Come to be inspired!  You'll want to be as brave as they are!

Sunday, 10:15 am.  There will be singing, pictures, stories and prayers.  See you there!
August Worship
We have so many exciting things happening in August!  If you're not on vacation, you'll want to be here!

Sunday, August 2 -- Youth SSP Worship
Sunday, August 9 -- Outdoor Worship (weather dependent)
Sunday, August 23 -- Holden family baptism and potluck celebration at Horseshoe Lake
Don't Forget!
We love summer because of the looser schedules, vacations and special events.  But the church finances don't take summer break!  Our expenses remain consistent in the summer months.  Please consider sending in your regular offering while you're away.  Or arrange a bill payment with your online banking program so it's sent in automatically.  

Thank you for your generosity!
