Announcements and Upcoming Events


Barbeque and Concert Fund Raiser

There are times when procrastination is not good like waiting until the last minute to write this news letter article as it is 10:15PM on a Sunday night. Then there are times when procrastination actually makes things easier such as not organizing the dinner and auction this year because with the fire we now have nowhere to hold it at church.

However with the temporary loss of Hurd Hall and not having the dinner and auction we have a $3,500 fund raiser that we must now replace with one or many different fund raisers. To that end I would like to let everybody know about an outside barbeque dinner we are having on Saturday July 23rd from 4-6 pm at church. Though this fund raiser won’t raise $3,500, with your participation, and hopefully pulling in customers off the street, we can raise a good percentage of that money. Following the dinner GRASP will be performing our own concert on the commons down the street from 6:00 to 8:00. Hopefully all of you will be able to make both and enjoy a great night out. Also pray for good weather as we will need it. More information and signup sheets will be forth coming later on this summer, but put the date on the calendar for now and we hope to see you there.
