It's Party Time!

Celebrate God's faithfulness this coming Friday night, June 15, with Michael and Pearl Oh. Michael recently finished his doctorate, and they are preparing to return to Japan. For more information, check out the Global Outreach blog.

Free Cabinet and TV

I have a TV "entertainment center." It is light beech colored wood; holds a large TV with side cabinet space for stereo, dvd player, etc. Will give to whoever can haul it away.

Also have a 28" TV to give. I have to literally slap it periodically to get a picture and would think it is easily repairable. This is also free to anyone who will pick it up.

Email me at if interested.

Odunde Festival

Dori Baggs sends this alert:

The Odunde Festival is this Sunday (it's always the 2nd Sunday in June). The festival closes down South Street. So there will be many detours and of course it makes parking (especially for the evening service!) difficult on all surrounding streets.

Sparrows and Secret Sisters

All girls, teens and women ages 5 years old and up are invited to the Sparrows year end craft and devotional this Saturday, June 9th, from 1:00-3:00 in Fellowship Hall.
