¨ Thanks so much for your support of displaced Ukrainian refugees!  Between VBS and your donations we were able to send $315.73 in their support.


¨ The Sunday morning adult small group will resume September 10thWe meet upstairs, in the Ignite room, from 8:45 – 9:45 AM.  The year will begin with a series on Forgiveness, perhaps one of the more overlooked doctrines of the Christian faith. How important is forgiveness? What does God’s forgiveness look like? What does scripture say about my forgiving  others, or them forgiving me? How can I come to the decision to forgive someone for something terrible they have done to me or to others around me? Perhaps you have done something God does not want you to do. You read about His forgiveness but for some reason you still feel guilty rather than free. How do you fix that?  Please join us as we explore this critical  subject. Contact Tom Koonsman for more information.


¨ School is coming soon!  In September Children’s Church is hoping to have 2 classrooms again (K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade).  Would you consider teaching one of these classes for one month?  If you would like to volunteer or have any questions please let Rhonda know. (rhonda@nccbellingham.com)


¨ The Swinburnes and Bishops are in Macedonia until August 21.  Let’s be in prayer for them as they travel and visit the places the Bishops have served over the years.


¨ Sheila Vicic will be serving for the next month with Samaritan’s Purse near the wildfires in B.C. on Williams Lake.  Pray for safety, and that she would settle in to her responsibilities quickly and know how to best minister to those who are near the front lines.
