WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY - Our Summer Bible study will continue on Wednesday, August 14th at 10:30 a.m. We have been focusing on the twelve Minor Prophets. The books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi are "minor" in name only--they contain some great, powerful, and important teaching. God has spoken (and continues to speak) loudly through these men of God.
CELEBRATION: In 2021 Low's will celebrate 250 years of ministry. We are looking at ways to celebrate this milestone in the story of Low's and will need your help in the coming months ahead. Among the needs will be photos and memorabilia from Low's early days, and folks to help publicize and organize events. Please consider how you can help Low's mark this important milestone.

LAKE FEST - Sunday, August 25th - join us by the water at Lake Macintosh starting at 10:30 a.m. The worship service will be followed by a fellowship lunch. We have reserved the large shelter with several picnic tables and benches, but we suggest that you bring lawn chairs if you have them. There will be motorized transportation to take worshippers from their cars to the shelter. Dress casually. For those who cannot participate in the lake service there will be a service held in the sanctuary at 9:00 a.m. Holy Communion will be celebrated at the early service only. Sunday School will not be held. Students and teachers are invited to bring their back packs, planners or brief cases for a special back to school blessing. In case of rain, we will have the service in the sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. with the meal afterwards in the Fellowship Hall. If you are uncertain as to where the service will be held, call the church office (336-5654639) Sunday morning..
