PRAYER SHAWL THANKS. Judy sends a special thanks for her prayer shawl, she had it with her for both of her back operations and was helped by the support it brought to her during her time of need.
NKPC FISHING CONTEST UPDATE:
Check out the photo of Chet's huge Pumpkinseed Fish in the fellowship hall.
What fish can you enter to compete? Remember to take a photo of your fish next to a tape measure and send the photo to Pastor Karen to enter the contest.
Winners are determined by percentage of Master Angler score. EVERYONE is WELCOME to participate! Multiple entries encouraged.
Prayer Shawls: We are currently running low on prayer shawls! If you would be willing to knit or crochet one for NKPC to give away, please take some skeins of yarn, a pattern and even borrow some needles if you need them. Let's continue to make these beautiful ministry gifts!
POTLUCK THIS SUNDAY JULY 7th
We hope that you are thinking of your special dish from your family heritage or history that you would like to share with at the potluck on Sunday after church. Remember it can be simple like a package of windmill cookies or Mac and cheese! If you are available to help set up the tables in the T room, please meet at the church about 1:00 pm on Friday afternoon, July 5th.
