Announcements – June 19, 2016
Mission of the Month: Arlington Free Clinic
The Arlington Free Clinic (AFC) provides free, high-quality medical care to low-income, uninsured Arlington County adults through the generosity of donors and volunteers. All patients live in Arlington County and have incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Although most of their patients work, their jobs do not include access to health insurance. In recent years, an increasing number of new patients came to the AFC after losing their jobs and their insurance.
You can give to the mission of the month by using the special mission offering envelopes in the pews or donating online.

Anyone who has been touched by the pain of pregnancy loss is invited to participate in a Service of Remembrance on Sunday, June 26.
