On Aug. 6, Charlie Farrell will speak on Romans 5:1-5, with a message entitled "Hope Floats." Charlie and his wife Jan recently inaugurated the Parkinson's boxing group Rock Steady Boxing.
Aug. 13 will feature Midge Hagen and Bev Gardner, who will speak about near-death experiences, entitled "I Came Back."
Aug. 20 will be an extra special day. Aaron Clay, a Delta attorney, will preach on "Not Storing Up Our Riches." After the service the church will celebrate with a potluck luncheon, while Aaron gives a short seminar focusing on wills, legacies and related planning, including the My Fives Wishes booklet. Don't miss this one!
On Aug. 27, Jude Conn will provide the message. She will speak about "Jesus the Healer," based on Matthew 16:13-20.
On Sept. 3, Karen Cline will close out the lay speaking adventure. She will be preaching from Exodus 3:1-15, asking with Moses on the mountain, "And Who Should I Say You Are?"
