Big Events and Bigger Prayers This Week!

HAWAIIAN SHIRT SUNDAY
On July 29 we are celebrating summer with Hawaiian shirts, ukuleles during the service, and ice cream sundaes afterwards!   Share the post to your Facebook page to invite others to show off their best shirt too!

UNITY FEST—DAY ZERO
On August 8 the gates at Heritage Landing will open for the start of Unity Fest!  Show up at 5:00PM or earlier if you want to save a place for the group.  Bring money for food but entry is free!  All of Celebration and your friends are invited to enjoy David Crowder, speaker David Palau, and other musical guests.  The night will end around 10:30PM.  This is one of the coolest times you will have all year!  Don’t miss it!

FINISHING WELL
The new Children’s Area is almost done!  Take a tour to see what it will look like: Tiki Hut sign in, coffee bar in the Fireside Room, and cabinets in the Oasis and Children’s Nursery!  We are only $6500 short of completing the project!  Please send in your pledges or prayerfully consider financially supporting the project as we seek to finish well.
