The Central Africa Medical Mission is in need of the following items:

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month!
More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s and this number could rise as high as 16 million by 2050 (Public Policy Institute 2015).  How can God equip us to help people hurting from this disease? Please consider joining us for The Longest Day Prayer Service: Everyone is welcome to invite friends, neighbors, anyone who may be interested in receiving information, spiritual and emotional support and resources on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 7 p.m. here at Friedens. Postcards are available in the back of church, please share with others!

Longest Day Planning:  There will be a brief meeting on June 11th during the potluck and on June 18th following the church service.   If you are out and about in the community, there are flyers and postcards, please take and post.  Congregation members are asked to bring a dessert to share, there is a sign-up by the mailboxes.  Also, if you are unable to attend and would like to donate, there are envelopes on the hall table that may be placed in the collection plate or the lock box by offices.

Registration for Sunbeam Day Camp(Kindergarten- 2nd grade) is on the table.  The event is in St. Peter on Friday, June 23.  See June Newsletter for more details.
