  1. If you are new here and would like to know more about Jesus, Leidy’s Church, and how to get connected, please fill out the Get Connected Card and put it in the Get Connected box on the left-hand side of the doors when you leave.
  2. As you partner with us in the work of the Kingdom, please place your gifts and offerings in the Get Connected pillars.
  3. We Need Eaters! Yes, SLMT ’23 [Summer Edition] needs folk who will eat all the good food a coterie of careful cooks will prepare each day for the SLMT workers at Life Turning Point Philly. Sign-up sheets are on the narthex wall. Description of the work to be done may be found in the July/August Newsletter [yes, we expect you to read it!]. This is a significant project both in terms of work to be done and in terms of help to be given to the ministry. See Brian, Sherman, or Rich for more info.
  4. VBS is coming to Leidy’s July 31 – Aug 4! To learn more and register your kids, go to www.leidyschurch.org/vbs. There are postcards on the Welcome Desk and in the office for you to take to pass out to your friends and neighbors.
  5. If you volunteered to help bake for SLMT, be sure to check your narthex mailbox for a note from Jacqui Shafer outlining what you have been assigned. She asks that your baked goods be left in the church kitchen by the Sunday before the work week begins.
  6. Attention Mission Committee folk: cards to be signed for our missionaries are on the counter in the office. Please take time to sign them this week or as soon as possible. And, pass the word along to members who might not know about them.
  7. Coffee hour help is welcome! If you’ve been wondering how YOU can help with the provision, set-up, and clean-up for our after-service coffee hour, don’t wonder anymore! Please ask Vangie Niederhaus or Gina Shoemaker how or when you can help, or check out the July/August Newsletter for more info. Thank you!
  8. Saturday Excursions for the SLMT ’23 at Life Point Philly will be taking place on July 8 and July 15. To register to be part of those efforts, please text or email John Niederhaus at 215-720-0456/ ilcjhcn@hotmail.com
  9. One of our members, Sandy Derr, would love to attend church if she could get transportation from her home in Perkasie (near the Ridge). If this is something you feel led to help with, please call Diane Gehman at 215-622-0091.
  10. The movie Sound of Freedom is based on a true story and shines a light on the dark world of child sex trafficking–the fastest growing crime in the world, and the United States is the epicenter. After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent embarks on a dangerous mission to save the boy’s sister who has also been trafficked. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her. This movie will be shown at the Broad Street Theatre in Souderton beginning July 4th to the 13th.
  11. The flowers are given in thankfulness to God’s faithfulness to our church family by Bill and Miriam Weigner.
