Apple Tree Project
As you know, we have continuously been part of the Apple Tree host site each year, and we are doing it again this year. With your help, we were able to donate gift cards to assist Denton ISD through Interfaith Ministries of Denton. Just like last year, we will collect a $25 gift card (apples) from any clothing or shoe store. If you choose to make cash donations of any amount, please do so by indicating that it is for the Apple Tree Project. They will make sure the cards go to those children most in need. The Apple Tree Campaign/Back to school assistance will run through the summer months until the end of July.
If you have any questions, please contact Kate Eni, or anyone on the Mission Committee.

Music Notes 🎶
At the request of Craig and the Worship Committee, the choir has made a recording of some of the hymns and refrains we often sing as responses in worship. The Communion service music is also on the recording. You can access this recording at:
They are in both MP3 and Wav files. However, some of the hymn numbers are missing their first number. For example, number 561 reads 61. We are in the process of fixing this glitch, but wanted to get the files to you now. A page with the texts is on the table in the narthex.
We will make CDs as well for use in "traditional" CD players for your car or wherever. We hope that this recording will help your children learn the music we sing at church so they will participate more easily. Think Simon Clinard!
Please let me know if you want a CD!
And many, many thanks to Eric Bright who made the recording.
Adult Summer Sunday School Jul 14–Aug 25 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Stories include Garden of Eden, David and Bathsheba, Jesus and the Caananite woman, Sacrifice of Isaac, and Jesus and Mary and Martha. She is interesting to listen to, and will present additional interpretations of these stories. On the last Sunday, participants will get to view a video of a fascinating presentation she made at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis.

CASA of Denton County is looking for a few good men. We need to recruit more men to serve as advocates for local children in the child welfare system. We thought golf and free food might help, so we designed an event for August 15 that includes both at once.
Here's the link to get more information and sign up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/men-of-casa-top-golf-game-night-and-info-session-tickets-64967048190
If you have any questions about CASA, or want to consider becoming an advocate without going to this event (whatever your gender may be), contact Debbie Jensen.
