COOS Chancel Choir Ministry: The ministry in focus for the month of August is our choir. We are looking forward to sharing with you about our ministry, and we are also looking forward to recruiting new choir members. If you can sing well, please come and talk to us about the choir ministry. We will be in the parish hall serving some refreshments after the service.
Palm Bay Elementary Updates: All of the public schools will be going back to class on Wednesday August 12. We are gearing up for our partnership.

The school has suggested: Girl’s and Boy’s clothing; Neosporin; Calamine Lotion; Travel size items of deodorant and powders; Female products; Cleaning wipes; AA and AAA batteries; and Tissues. **We are in desperate need of boys and girls underwear. Mostly size 4 & 6.
- We are planning to prepare lunch (a BBQ?) for the Teachers during their back-to-school week.
- On Sunday, 9 August, during the Adult Forum at 9:25 a.m. we will review the updated information for volunteering in the classrooms. Anyone who might be interested in volunteering is invited to the Forum. If you cannot make it to the Forum, but are interested, please write “Interested” on today’s Friendship Form.
