Hi Folks!

Well, yesterday was a fun and eventful day!  After the worship service we had the vote regarding Drew Elgersma becoming our Associate Senior Pastor.  If you did not stay, or did not the get the text, it was a 99.5% vote in the affirmative!!!  We have certainly not had a vote that high since I have been here!  Drew has accepted the call for this position.

Please be in prayer for them as they transition this week from Kansas City to Friendsville.  The need at this point is for some folks to show up at iStorage (Self Storage) on Hwy 321 near the Pellissippi campus.  There will be a truck to unload into a storage unit.  We will meet at 2:00 p.m. this coming Saturday.  It would be great to have a good crowd there to knock this out quickly.

In other news – MEN, if you failed to sign up for the Fish & Wild Game Men’s Fellowship, call the church office asap, and sign up to bring something.  PLEASE NOTE: this event has been moved to the Fellowship Hall (due to the large sign up, about 40 so far) and will begin at 6:00 p.m.  Rick Hutchinson will be sharing.

Finally, here is the schedule for the Missions Conference.  Please make every effort to attend as many of these special services as possible.  Also be praying about what the Lord would have you to contribute to the Ingathering Offering on August 14.
