LAST WEEK FOR GLASSES DONATIONS During the International Folk Art Market, some Santa Fe medical providers offer clinics for artists. One of these clinics is optometry, which asks for donations of old eyeglasses. Adult and children sizes are accepted. Leave your donations on the front table at church through July 7. Becky Darden will deliver the collection. Thank you!
WORSHIP IN THE PARK & PICNIC Next Sunday, July 14, we will worship at the SWAN Park gazebo! Bring your friends and family as we celebrate in God’s great creation and share a picnic potluck afterwards. See the signup sheet in the hallway at church for picnic needs. The Community Presence committee will supplement as needed in order to have enough for 40 people. The church will provide plates, napkins, forks, serving utensils and additional ice. If you think of something else our picnic can't live without, please talk with Kay Storr. Directions to SWAN Park from the church: Go to Highway 14 and turn left. Turn right onto Highway 599. Take the Jaguar Drive exit and go to the right. At the roundabout, take a right, then follow the road into SWAN Park. Go to the end of the road, where there is parking and the gazebo.
