If you have any questions, talk to Mary Ellen, Harvey, Ruth Ann, Carl or Sylvia. Thank you. John Miller Cindy Horning On May 4, we shared with you a timetable for the pastoral search process. We identified late summer/early fall as the time for a nomination process for a lead pastor. The Pastoral Search Committee met on July 9 and worked on some of the details for that nomination process. Look for those details in a letter that we will have ready for Sunday, July 20. Let us pray for our present leaders and for the search process, and let us trust in the Lord. -J. Carl Sensenig, bishop, and the Pastoral Search Committee Volunteers are needed to shop for groceries for Freedom Gate. See Mildred Mohler. Bowmansville District Sewing Circle will meet at the Bowmansville Mennonite Church on Wednesday, July 16, in the morning and afternoon. Everyone is welcome to come for the entire time, or just a few hours as it suits you. The project for this month is Health Kits. The following items are included in a health kit: 1 toothbrush (adult size) 1 squeeze-tube toothpaste (min. 6 oz.) 1 bar soap (4-5 oz. left in wrapper) 1 fingernail clipper 1 hand towel (bright or dark color)
