Thank you to Mary Johnson for preaching today.

August Youth-Adult Book canceled: The August book group, reading Elisabeth Elliot's Through Gates of Splendor, is canceled for tonight. Unfortunately, we didn't get any readers. However, the book is still worth reading, and if anyone would like to try for a later date, just let Joe know. There's no reason we can't do the book group throughout the year.
