We are happy to welcome back John Brown back to North Collins.  John has been involved with Promise Valley, the ministry formerly known as Seneca Gospel Mission, in various ways for almost 20 years.  Let’s give him our full attention as he brings a message from God’s word.
The Yoders are on their way back from their Maine vacation.  If there is any church business that needs immediate attention, you may contact Bruce Temple at 243-6971. Derek will be back in the study on Tuesday, August 13th. Check out other dates on the summer calendar insert.
Our choir is in a time of transition.  If you would like to help us provide special music for our services beginning in the fall, please see Kathy or Alice.  We would love to have you join us!

Don’t forget to silence your devices.
