VBS is coming up!  Join in DEEP SEA DISCOVERY from July 25-29, 6 to 8 p.m. whether it’s as an attendee or a volunteer!  There will be a sign up sheet on Sunday after the services and would love to have you join in the fun in whatever capacity.    We will be coordinating volunteers and activities next week.  Feel free also to get in touch with me via email (pastor@milfordumc.org) if you’re away for the fourth of July weekend so not able to sign up yourself or kids up at church.

Another volunteer opportunity!  MUMC would love to have more greeters on the rotation list to greet for the Second Service.   What a fun thing to do – welcome people who come to worship!  Arrive a bit early (around 10 a.m.), greet them and if they are visitors introduce them to others (and to the pastor if I’m nearby) show off the sanctuary and, well, you most likely know what it takes to make people feel at home.  Please let Wendy know at (office@milfordumc.org) if that sounds like something you’d like to do.  Or try it out just once and see how it feels!  Dates currently open are July 24 and 31.

And of course volunteers of all sorts are needed for Hopefest!  It’s just about around the corner!  Steve Rafter is the one to get in touch with for that (sbrou812@aol.com).  If you don’t know what it’s about, check it out at hopefestnh.org.  As Steve says, “It’s gonna be a blast!!!!!”

Wishes for a wonderful Fourth of July as we celebrate the birth of this country (that’s probably going to be a “blast” too).

See you in church!
