We had a nice staff lunch outing today to celebrate Anthony James' tenure with us. He will be leaving in mid-August to attend college at North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, NC. He plans to major in mechanical engineering with special interest in race cars. One reason for choosing A&T is to join the college's race team. We appreciate Anthony's good service to the church and pray for God's blessing on him.

Home Improvement

Global Outreach home improvement, that is! This Saturday, join fellow Tenth folks to help clean, repair, and paint at the Global Outreach home in Upper Darby. The fun starts at 8:00 am and will wrap up around 2:00 pm. Lunch and drinks will be provided. For more information, contact Paul Reimold.

The Jones family thanks everyone for their love and prayers.

A Home for Brothers

Ruth Kiehlmeier needs a permanent home for two cats. They are brothers, one year old.

"Both cats have been neutured, tested negative for feline leukemia and AIDS, and are up to date on their shots (I have all the papers, which I will give to the new owners). They have lived their lives so far as house cats, and have been trained to act accordingly. They don't do too well outdoors in the city, though I'm sure they would love the outdoors in the country."



The last of the carpet was pulled up yesterday in the 315 Building and removed. This went faster than everyone expected so they are off to a good start. Painting is scheduled to start the week of July 23. Samples are being evaluated today.

We hope to have new carpet in Reception Hall by the end of August.

Building Report

Work has started on the 315 Building. Carpet is being torn out to be replaced. Some windows will be replaced for better insulation and to meet historic preservation guidelines. We also hope to have the front sign of the church back up this week.

More Goodbyes

I've come back to find that Karl and Susan Russo are gone, having moved to the D.C. area. The Herches have moved into their home. Sunday was Leila Charaf's last Sunday, as she and the children move this week to Wisconsin.


Christiana Fitzpatrick leaves this week for her new position at Covenant College. She will be dearly missed for both her friendship at Tenth and her role as Global Outreach Coordinator. We pray for God's blessings on her in her work with students at Covenant College, where she will be helping them to make wise career choices that further their work in God's kingdom. We will also depend on her to keep an eye on the Messners.

Back from Vacation

We are back from vacation. I am being asked if I got a lot of reading done. Let me make my confession now. I mostly did crossword puzzles. We did go see a movie - the sophisticated "Ratatoule." We stayed at the Berzinskys' cottage in the Poconos along the Susquenna River. For rental info, contact them at Quiet, beautiful surrounding. Canoe and kayaks available.
