Week of July 1, 2018
Brothers and Sisters,
Happy 4th of July! I hope many of you got to see the BlessMobile in the McKinney 4th of July parade this morning! I only got to see pictures, for I am at sunny Camp All Saints up on Lake Texoma, where Stephanie and I are helping to lead a week of church summer camp. Among the 60 something campers up here are 7 elementary and junior high youth from St. Andrew's, and we're having a great time!
But Stephanie and I are are coming back to McKinney this afternoon, just in time for our annual 4th of July picnic and fireworks watching party! We'll start gathering on the front lawn of the church at 6 pm or so. We'll provide hot dogs and hamburgers, you brings sides, drinks, etc. They'll be bounce houses, including a giant water slide, so don't forget to bring a swimsuit for the kids. The McKinney fireworks will go off a little after 9 pm, and we'll have a great view of them from the lawn. Hope to see you there!
Other Stuff Coming Up Soon:
BloodMobile and Parish Nurses Sunday — July 8
This coming Sunday we'll the Carter BloodMobile on-site to accept blood donations before and after our Sunday services. If you can help save a life by donating blood, I hope you'll make a trip out to the BloodMobile bus. It's also parish nurses Sunday, so between the 8 am and 9:15 am services, and after the 11 am service, we'll have our nurses down in my office to take blood pressure and answer any health questions.
