Tomorrow for ONE day only Free fans will be given out at the Courthouse/Treasurer's Office from 9am-2pm. Please pick one up if you need one, your
neighbors, or your elderly friends who might be suffering in this heat, There will be a short form to fill out. Take advantage of this kind gesture if you
need.

Due to Harvey, we have lost 6 Choir Members. Please consider joining our Choir... if you can sing, reading music is not required. Come sing loud and
proud!  Toni Post is in charge of choir, see her for any questions.

Choir will resume after reopening of our church. Thank You for your patience.

A HUGE thank you to
the family of Bill and Betty Lacey for their generous memorial donation and a grand cross that will be displayed once the church
reopens. Blessings abound!

Please consider being an Altar Guild! They really need people to volunteer. If you are interested in Altar Guild, please contact Lee Price at 361.816.1173
or by email: lee5375@cableone.net  

Update on Castaways: First and foremost, we can not thank and appreciate enough the group we currently have working. The current group of
volunteers are having a blast over there, both through fellowship and working. We are very close to meeting our 50/50 percentage with Peace, we received
a nice check this time around and it can still be more, with your help. Jobs vary from sitting down doing things, to walking the floor and hanging clothes
on racks, and you might even catch Pastor crawling around on the ground doing electrical work! There are a variety of jobs to be done that anyone can
do, if you have special needs, they can be accommodated for you. Great job members! Well Done!

If you have anything you would like added to future reminders, please let me know. Any information is good information

Blessings,
Diana
