SUMMER MOVIES AT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN: Don’t miss the third movie in our summer series! “Mary Poppins” will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17, in the Centre. We will have popcorn and drinks and you may want to bring a comfortable chair or a beanbag.

EACH SUNDAY WE ENJOY THE BEAUTY of flowers in our sanctuary. If you wish to reserve a Sunday, August 4 and November 10 are open dates on the calendar; call the church office (534-0088).

A LIVING FLOWER FUND has been established at our church through the gift of anonymous donors. Money from this fund is to be used to purchase and plant annuals and perennials on the church grounds. Additional gifts can be made to this fund through memorial gifts or gifts in honor of someone. Make checks payable to First Presbyterian Church and designate the money for the Living Flower Fund.
