The Community Vacation Bible School begins 9:00 a.m. Monday at the Methodist Church.  Several teachers and helpers are from our church as well as students.  It’s not too late for donations of juice, snacks, etc.  Look for the box in the vestibule on Sunday.

We will be serving at Sister Jean’s next Thursday.  Please be at the church at noon if you are able to help.

Our 5th Annual Home Grown Sunday will be August 10.  We ask all of you with green thumbs to bring in the excess of your gardens to be “purchased” by members and friends of the congregation.  All proceeds benefit Sister Jean’s kitchen.

Our MS Mission Team will be showing an 11 minute video of their trip to Diamondhead last February during the worship service on August 10.  Many thanks to Jim Maurer for putting this dvd together!

Words for the Heart – Read Psalm 119:97-104

At age ten, I was finally old enough to attend the Sunday school class that "Miss Mary" taught. She was a tall, erect figure with gray hair and was never without the smile that creased her elderly face. Her faith and her knowledge of the Bible were legendary. She gave us gold stars and joyful approval each week when we recited our Bible verses.

One Sunday, a student asked Miss Mary if she knew many Bible verses from memory. Her smile deepened as she slowly turned the pages of her own well-worn Bible. "Many of these underlined verses are those that I learned when I was about your age, but I learned them in a special way." She slowly closed her Bible and clasped it as tenderly as one holds an infant. "I learn poems and songs by memory," she said, "but I learn the Bible by heart."

Like Miss Mary, we can keep God's message in our hearts, live by it, and share it with others.
