Family Services Sunday
On the second Sunday each month we will be observing Family Services Sunday. For several years now we have received non-perishable food items for the Altoona Food Bank on the 3rd Sunday of each month. We have learned that Family Services, Inc, 2002 Broad Ave, puts out a calendar of items that they need donations of each month. The Session decided that we would ask you to bring these needed items here to the church on the 2nd Sunday of the month to be given to Family Services. Needed items for July are: all-purpose cleaners; degreasers; bleach; oven cleaner; rubber gloves; Mr. Clean Magic Eraser; mops, brooms, and dust pans; high efficiency laundry detergent; fabric softener sheets; garbage bags-all sizes; and ceramic stovetop cleaner.
Food Bank Sunday
The suggested food item for Aug. is TBA. Any donation is appreciated.
Bible Reading Plan 2020
It’s now the year 2020. The expression “20/20” makes one think about perfect vision. To have spiritual vision one needs a regular reading of the Bible in one’s daily life. Christian leaders have a vision for 2020 as the Year of the Bible for millions around the world. They have been joining their resources around the Good Book movement that has garnered support from Pope Francis, Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan adn over 20,000 churches and ministry organizations in more than 100 nations. To aid you in your study of the Bible this year, a sample Bible reading plan by the Navigators is included.

The Worship Team has chosen a new florist, Sunrise Floral & Gifts, to provide flowers in 2020. Increased prices from Warner’s Florist Gifts Greenhouses prompted the Worship Team to be good stewards and do some “comparison shopping”. Floral vases will continue to be $20/vase ($40.00 for two vases).
If you would like to honor or remember a love one, please sign the 2020 Flower Calendar. The cost is $40 for two vases.
