Valley Church Camping Retreat:
You are invited to join us for a camping retreat from the evening of Friday, August 17 through the morning of Sunday, August 19 at Chenango Valley State Park. You can either camp or participate during the day and sleep in the comfort of your own home. The lion's share of activities will be on Saturday, August 18 (a more detailed schedule of events will be provided next week). Please let Pastor Kurt know if you will be attending to camp or for daytime-only participation by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out the sheet in the foyer. If you plan to tent camp, we would encourage you to reserve a spot in Chipmunk Bluff. There are still tent sites in the north section of Chipmunk Bluff 60-88 that would be ideal. If you are RV camping and need electricity, please select an appropriate site nearby in the Chipmunk Bluff area. See here to make reservations. The service of worship on Sunday, August 19 will be at Valley's building, not at the state park.
Hospitality (and good food!) for Ends of the Earth New York Cycling Tour:
Ends of the Earth Cycling's New York tour is coming through the Binghamton area on August 11 and 12. The riders, who are raising money to support youth ministries in Ukraine and Georgia (the country, not the state), will be staying at Central Baptist Church. Valley Church will be providing dessert for their evening meal at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 11 at Central Baptist. There will be a total of 35 people for whom we will need to provide dessert. If you are willing to make a dessert for hungry cyclists, please sign up on the sign-up sheet in the foyer or email Pastor Kurt at email@example.com. Desserts will need to be dropped off at Central Baptist at around 5:00 on Saturday the 11th.
Summer Fellowship Refreshments:
Please sign up to help provide refreshments for the time of fellowship following the service of worship during the summer. There are opportunities to come alongside other volunteers on several Sundays in August! The sign-up sheet is in the foyer.
If you are interested in ushering on Sunday mornings, please talk to Pastor Kurt or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
