Thought for the Week
The choice to grow always involves a choice between risk and comfort. This means that to be a follower of Jesus, you must renounce comfort as the ultimate value of your life. And that’s sobering news to most of us, because we’re into comfort.”
-- John Ortberg

SPECIAL THANKS to Malcolm Brewer (and Val) for filling in once again in the absence of Pastor and Susan. Your careful exposition of God’s word is a blessing to all of us.

We also extend our sympathies to Mark, Susanna, Hannah, and Emily on the death last week of Mark’s dad. We know that no death is without its unique pain, even those filled with the hope of the gospel. So, as your loving church family, know that we are praying for everyone in your family.

F.Y.I. – Pastor and Susan are on vacation and will be returning
on Tuesday, August 30. If you have questions or need for encouragement, help, or prayer support, please call Kay in the
church office (474-7151), or one of our excellent elders: Mark (539-3629), Al (360-893-3670), or Blake (677-7898). They will
be glad to help you.


Summer Into Fall
Summer turning into fall
One of the most beautiful times of all,
Trees tinged with color but still green.
Some of the loveliest flowers we’ve seen,
The harvest will be coming soon,
With that great big harvest moon,
We know who made it, who gives it free,
As a special gift to you and me.
Thank you Lord, so very much, for your generosity.
For all the gifts you give us now, and for your eternity.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERFUL CONSIDERATION
