Well, two big events are happening in the life of our church presently. First, we are getting ready to go on our mission trip to South Korea leaving Monday July 21. Please pray for us and be watching this blog DAILY as it will change Daily updating everyone on what we are doing and we'll be posting some pictures.

Secondly, we are in the process of searching for a Full time Music Minister and have narrowed our search down to one person we are currently interviewing. Please pray for the search team as well as the candidate we are talking to that God would show Himself very clearly in this big decision that we both have to make.

Vacation Bible School is going great! New families are coming and kids are getting excited! Please attend the Bible School Commencement service on Sunday July 20 at 11:00 am and be prepared to stay after for a cook-out provided free by our men's group. This is NOT a potluck, everything is provided. All you have to do is show up!

Thanks to everyone who came to our 4th of July Cook-out sponsored by our Men's Group. Everyone made it a great success and the fireworks were spectacular!

We've been promoting Small Groups for this fall and I preached about a Biblical Pattern for Small Groups on Sunday July 13. Many have signed up to be a host home and others have been approached about be facilitators. In a few weeks we will offer sign ups for membership into host homes. Please be praying and looking for your opportunity to grow your spiritual, discipleship and Bible Study life as well as making new friends and growing in relationship with others.

We want to thank our Men's Group for turning our court yard area, in between our buildings, into a wonderful children's play area. We have put several nice Little Tikes play toys out there in the fenced in area until we can get the money raised for the large play set, around $6000. Please pray that God would start providing those funds as well.

For all our guys, here is a reminder that we have a big Promise Keepers Rally at the Tacoma Dome this fall in November! Please pray about attending this National Event that is so close to us. I have a feeling that it will draw you closer to God.

Be watching DAILY next week for the Blog from S. Korea!
Serving the Kingdom,
Pastor Dan
