Important Need for Volunteers To Help at the Four Church Farm:
A team of 3-4 volunteers is needed at the Four Church Farm to help
with mowing every third Wednesday per month at 1:00 p.m. Those dates
are July 18, Aug. 15, Sept. 19, and Oct. 17. All equipment and gas
is provided by the Four Church Farm. The mowing is done by all the
partner congregations and the above dates are when it is our turn to
mow at the Four Church Farm. Stephen Goff and Pastor can answer any
questions you may have. We need a team of volunteers in place to do
our part at the Farm.
Looking AheadóPlease mark your calendar for July 22nd: Our second
service will be held at the Four Church Farm. This will be a special
service with Sending Blessings for the Delancey family, who will be
Michigan for Juddís seminary internship. A POTLUCK PICNIC will
follow the service.

The pray-ground is a wiggle space for our youngest members. We ask
that children who visit this area follow three simple rules:
1. Visit with a parent or guardian.
2. Place toys back in the basket when done.
3. Use a whisper if talking is necessary.
Thank You Notes:
To Our Dear Lutheran Family,
My son, George, and I wuld like to thank everyone for the prayers,

We could never have imagined that our loved ones, my Paul and
Georgeís Christi, would leave us to soon and so close together.
Christi fought cancer for fourteen years and she was tired. God
called her home to give her peace and rest. Paulís heart was worn
out. We were so blessed to have him for eighty-seven years until God
gave him peace and rest as well. While it is so difficult and we
hurt so badly, your love and prayers help us to get through and
carry on knowing that one day we will all be together again in our

through it all. The entire Krauss family has been blessed by your
love and friendship. You are a special part of our family.
Thank you from the Krauss family,
Alice, George, Dennis, Cheryl, Tia, Cameron, Cadyn, Corey and Chloe
