THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE BOX for July is the Lititz Springs Park, which is a private park, maintained by the Churches of Lititz, for public use. The Park does not rely on municipal funding, but on the generous giving of the citizens of the community. Your contribution will not only assist with the expenses of the Fourth of July Celebration, but will help with continuing maintenance of the Park, including the Welcome Center/Train Station and other buildings.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR LITTLE ONES is the feature of the new display in the Archives showcase in the narthex. You'll find both Cradle Roll and Beginner's Department Promotion certificates from the late 1920's. There are a Children's Hymnal & Service Book, used during the early 1900's, and wooden offering plates that collected many pennies in their day. Look carefully at the 1913 photograph of the Sunday School classes posed in front of the Broad & Orange Street church for relatives you know. And imagine, if you will, the kind of local economy that was responsible for collecting a total Sunday School offering of $14.29 on Sunday, July 23, 1933. The Sunday School Records Book shows an attendance of 387 that day!
THE WELCA BOOK CLUB will meet at 7 p.m. on August 1st to discuss the book, “Flight Behavior” by Barbara Kingsolver.

EIGHTY-FOUR AND COUNTING is the number of completed blankets as of the end of June! All are welcome to join us for some or all of these times for blanket making in July: Thursday July 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. as well as Wednesday, July 31 from 9 a.m. to noon.
WANT TO SEW AT HOME? If you cannot come to blanket making but you want to sew, there are patches to make a blanket top available in a tub in the narthex which have instructions included. Just follow the directions and return the completed top to that same container.
THE MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES SURVEY– was created so I could become more acquainted with the groups our members are currently involved in as well as what interests you may have. I am requesting all of our members to complete this survey. This will help me in my goals of supporting our current small groups as well as creating new small groups and fellowship activities. The ushers have extra copies of the survey if you need one. All surveys should be returned to the church office by August 1 (or as soon after as possible.) The survey is also available to fill out online at the following link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5CBS287
Thank you for helping me to strengthen the fellowship and outreach opportunities at St. Paul, Barb Paynter
