Dear Congregational Family,
1. Vicar Kevin & Jacci Czymbor: Today the Czymbor’s are arriving! We are looking forward to these next 11 months that they will be with us at Ruthfred for their practical ministry seminary training. This is a joint effort on our part with the seminary and it involves all of our members! Please get to know the Czymbor’s, invite them over to share a meal with you, look for ways to share your life with them, and minister to them even as they learn to minister to you. Welcome Vicar Kevin & Jacci; Noah & Ezra!
The truck will be at the parsonage by 2:00pm, ready to be unloaded! Volunteers are welcome!
2. South Hills Flood: Last Wednesday we experienced a deluge in the South Hills in which many homes and businesses were destroyed, along with much loss of property, and even one life. A number of our church members suffered severe damage and loss. It has been great to see our members reach out to those in (who are known) need already and to help! Please take this opportunity to offer help to your neighbors and especially to check on our members in low lying areas. Serve others in the Name of Jesus, with the Love of the Lord! Please let Pat Lutz at the church office know of those who you know need help and she will communicate that to me as well.
3. Concert: Katy Dahl will be in concert at our church this Friday at 7:00pm! This will be a wonderful time to praise and worship God together. Coffee, cookies and fellowship to follow. This is a great opportunity to invite someone with you to our church!
4. Youth Camping: The youth are having an incredible summer already! Below are a couple pictures of their camping trip last weekend at Ohiopyle. Thanks Brandon and youth advisors for your ministry to our youth!
God bless you as we continue,
“Growing Together in our Faith as the Family of God.”
