July 2 is our Annual Community Worship Service. Time is 10:45 AM and is an outdoor service.  Fellowship follows. Sign-up for setting up and serving and clean-up for this Community Fellowship is on the table in the narthex.

Next Holy Hike, July 8 at 1:00 PM.  Parking at Musser Gap.

 Applications for the Sprankle Scholarship Fund are now available.  Interested candidates can find the application form online at www.stpaulpgm.org.  Deadline is June 30.  Contact Randy Wills, Roger Williams, or Tom Harner.

Summer Music—If you play an instrument or sing, you’re invited to offer special music during a summer worship service.  A sign-up sheet is posted on the music bulletin board in the hallway.  If you need help finding an appropriate song, ask Debbie or Beverly for guidance.

A weekly discussion of the approaching Sunday’s texts is being offered each Wednesday at 1:30 PM.  Each week will be new and unique so people can miss several and still fit in the following week.

 Morgen Hummel likes to bicycle and to fundraise, and in light of this, asks for your support in two major fundraisers this summer.  The first one was on June 24, for Centre Volunteers in Medicine.  Morgen rode 62 miles around western Centre County to bring awareness and support to CVIM, a State College-based group that provides free medical and dental care to low-income people in central Pennsylvania.  The second fundraising bicycle ride will be the Keystone Country Ride, a 150 mile, two-day adventure from Hollidaysburg to State College and back on July 22 and 23.  This ride is in support of the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Donations for both fundraisers will be accepted until the end of July on sign-up sheets in the narthex in church–there are envelopes for cash and check donations. Receipts for tax purposes can be provided if you give your address and request a receipt. Online donations are accepted by both organizations, too.  See Morgen for more information. Thank you!
