Hello Friends:

We had a good service at First Congregational Church on Sunday.  Our second and final service at First Congregational will be this Sunday.  We will have our last two joint services at UBC on July 20 and 27th.  The preachers for the next two Sundays will be from FCC.  In keeping with our July topic on environmental stewardship, the focus for July 13th will be “Fire”.  The Service on July 20th will focus on “Water”.  I will be out of town these next two Sundays attending the Baptist Peace Fellowship’s summer conference at Brock University in the Toronto area.  I will be gone from July 11-21.  While I am out of town, Diane Ehr will be on call for pastoral emergencies.

The mulch never arrived last week, but the Garden Team is still hard at work. Come join the team on Thursdays from 1-5pm.

Our old boiler needs some major repairs.  The Building Maintenance Team and the UBC Council has been meeting to try to figure out a solution.  There will be a church meeting on July 20th after worship to discuss how to heat the building and how to pay for the new or repaired system.  

Ruby Rott encouraged me to sign up for the Minnesota Senior Games.  I did and will join many other active seniors in the games in August. You only need to be 50 to participate. Yes, I’m that old. Sports run the gamut from triathlon to horseshoes.  If you do well enough this year, you can qualify for the National Senior Games also held in Minnesota in 2015. You can find out more here:  The registration deadline is July 21st.  They also need lots of volunteers—there is no age requirement for volunteers J.
