The single rose on the altar this morning is for Daniel Blakeman who was born on Tuesday to Derek and Heidi Blakeman of Denville, New Jersey. His happy grandparents are Alan and Joanne Blakeman.

Food for the Montpelier Food Pantry Each month the Outreach Board focuses on collecting one type of food (as per request of the pantry). People may give any type of food, it too will be collected and blessed and sent. For the month of August our focus food is cereal.

August worship: Come and explore HOSPITALITY as part of the Christian faith. For the month of August, Bethany Church is worshiping in a style some will remember from other services in places like the chapel, retreats and summer camp. We will be able to see each others' faces, hear what they say, and break bread together. Come at 9:30 for hospitality. The worship service will focus on prayers and scripture as a living word. We will have communion each time. And some good music.

PINS backpacks-The new school year is just a few short weeks away and the children and youth involved with Barre Family Services, DCF can use our help. Please consider taking a tag and filling a backpack with school supplies. There are over 100 children in the custody of the Barre Office, and we want to provide backpacks for 20 of those kids. Tags will be available before and after church today. Filled backpacks are due back on Sunday August 21. Thanks for you help! Sandy Clougher, Outreach Board.

Please can you help? The Bethany Bowl is still looking for a cook or several cooks to cover the second Tuesday's luncheon. Presently we are covered through October with several people taking ONE turn. If that might work for you, see, call (476-4277) or e-mail (conradrowell@aol,com) Phyllis Rowell for more details. Believe it or not, we do have fun!

Once again the Share Fair- will be happening on November 5 and once again we are asking for contributions for the Bethany Booth which offers items made by the many talented people in Bethany Church. What can you offer? Please let Phyllis Rowell know (476-4277) or conradrowell@aol.com Many thanks!

Fun Day at Lake Elmore! Join your church friends for an afternoon at the beach! After church on Sunday, August 21st we will gather at Lake Elmore for swimming, chatting and good fun!
