Summer Sunday School
Throughout the summer, families with Sunday School-age children are invited to bring children directly to the Fellowship Hall before the 9:30 service. There, we’ll have a variety of fun activities planned. Then children will join their parents in worship during the offering.

Faith’s Rejuvenation Process Continues
The Jackson Street entrance renovation is coming along! We request that people not use this entrance for a few weeks, but the noticeable improvements will be worth it! We’ll continue to see transformation in our fellowship space throughout the summer. Painting of the building’s exterior trim will begin in early July as well, now that new gutters have been installed and repairs have been made to the roof. Be sure to check out the progress each Sunday when you come for worship!
Family Movie Night
Saturday, August 13, 7:30 p.m.—Come enjoy a movie under the stars. Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy a family-friendly move (TBD) at the Quattlebaums’ house (contact the office for the address). Popcorn and lemonade will be provided. RSVP to Mary.
More work days are planned for Saturdays, August 6, September 3 and October 1. This year, we’ll be setting up a “farm market” one Sunday per month, May – August, to sell extra produce at church. For details, and to sign up to help out with the garden, visit www.flcva.org/garden.
