 Back-to-School Supply Drive & Potluck: Summer is coming to an end in just a few weeks, and our kids and youth are headed back to school. Let's help them gear up for the academic year with a few helpful supplies. Click this link to see how you may be able to contribute. Ask friends and family to help too, or post to Facebook. 

We will also celebrate and give kids and teachers a send-off with a potluck following church on August 14th. Please sign up here. In addition, there will be a sign-up available at the hospitality table on Sunday morning, as well as warming pans you can pick up if you plan to bring a hot food item to the potluck. 
 
If you have any questions about the back-to-school drive, contact Christal. If you have any questions about the potluck, contact Bethany

 Kevin Blue Ordination: On this Saturday, June 25, at 7:00 pm, Pastor Kevin will be ordained by the Evangelical Covenant Church (during the Covenant Annual Meeting, held this year in Phoenix) and receive a permanent ministerial credential with the denomination. (The ECC offers multiple levels of credentialing; previously, Pastor Kevin held a ministry license that was renewed on an annual basis.) 

The ordination service will be streamed live (and archived) on the ECC website (www.covchurch.org/gather), so feel free to watch along and celebrate this significant moment in Pastor Kevin's life and ministry. (Pastor Kevin's group -- the "word and sacrament" category -- will be the last ones to be prayed for during the service.) Please also pray for him and Pastor Jen, that God will continue to shepherd them as they shepherd us!
