WELCOME!
We extend a warm welcome to all who have come to worship and fellowship with us this morning. If you are a first time visitor with us, please take time to fill out a Welcome Card located in the pew rack and place it in the offering plate. Parents of small children (under age 3) may take them to our Nursery, where a caring staff will supervise them. We also have a Pre-School Program (ages 3-5) that runs during our Worship Service in the Church Time PreSchool Room. One of our ushers would be happy to help you locate either one of these facilities. Elementary School children are invited to take part in our KidZone program which starts after the first part of our Worship Service downstairs in the Vestry.

CHURCH GARDEN UPDATE

We have tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peas, lettuce, spinach, garlic, beets and carrots beginning to sprout up, some doing a lot better than others! Harvesting in small quantities for meals by the fine folk of Bedford Baptist should begin around the first week of August. Thank you to Zephaniah Otuki for the wooden stakes used to support the tomatoes and cucumbers. Thank you to Randy Murphy for the delivery of the topsoil, an upgrade to last years clay / gravel mix! Anyone who can tell the difference between what was planted, and a healthy crop of weeds, is welcome to pluck to their hearts content!
