 Women’s Fellowship Retreat Update 
  It’s getting closer ladies! Our Aug. 5th Retreat is this weekend. Think about a day at Pat Hillman’s cabin with your friends. We’ll share a bible study on our favorite scriptures, get an introduction to the book of Luke and spend time in the woods. Maybe you’ll even decide to extend to Aug.6&7! The cost will be 10$/day. Carpooling will be available.  We will leave the Tulare area about 8:15 in the morning and return by 8:30 in the evening. This will be a great way to round out your summer and begin looking toward the fall.
Youth Group will resume on Wednesday evening, August 16 at 5:30 to 6:45 pm.
