Church News/Preview

Our Christian sympathy is extended to the family of Jeri Wampler. Jeri was called home by our Lord and Savior on June 9th. A Memorial Service will be held at the church on July 11th starting at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of Memorial Type flowers the family has asked that, in honor of Jeri's love of butterflies, flowers be of the kind that can be transplanted outdoors and help the butterflies during their yearly migrations.

The Women's Association is gearing up for the 41st Annual Tasting Luncheon to be held on Friday, June 29th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The women have been very busy planning a delicious assortment of dishes for your sampling. This year's decorations will feature a wonderful display of paintings and art work by Connie Hawkins, Doris From, and Ginger Spice.

Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased from a member of the Women's Association or by calling the church office at 812-384-8424. Cost of the tickets are $7 in advance or $8 at the door, children under 6 are $3. Mark your calendars now and bring a friend for this annual event. Carry outs and delivery to the Bloomfield area are also available.

Plans are in the works for this year's Vacation Bible School on July 9th, 10th, and 11th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Kids will have a ball (a "snowball" that is) of fun while they warm up to Jesus and learn that Jesus' love is cool at this year's "Polar Blast" VBS. None of this can happen, though, unless we have enough volunteers like you to help out. We are looking for volunteers to do the lesson each evening, help with crafts, kitchen help and group leaders. Please let LuAnne Allen or the church office know if you would be willing to help.

Each evening will get the snowball rolling at 6:00 p.m. with a light meal in Fellowship Hall. Afterwards the children will enjoy a wonderful evening of Bible Stories, music, games, crafts and fellowship all while learning that "Jesus' love is cool". Children from 3 years to 6th grade are welcome to attend.

The Session will be meeting on Thursday, June 21st at 5:00 p.m. in the Library.

Summer is just around the corner and Camp PYOCA is busy working getting everything ready for their youth summer camps. Camp PYOCA provides incredible opportunities for faith formation, leadership development and Christian education. Check out their website at for more information. Our Session has agreed to pay a part of each of our youth's registration fee for camp, so don't let your child miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

The church secretary will be on vacation July 14th – 21st. Deb Cullison will be checking the answering machine and emails during this time. Please contact Pastor Dawn with any concerns.

News from the kitchen. The trustees have voted to replace the kitchen refrigerator as the old one is not working very well. The trustees would like to thank the Women's Association for their assistance in making this purchase. The new refrigerator is scheduled to be delivered on Monday.


It's getting close to that time of year again, that we start looking forward to the church's annual Holiday World trip. This year we are looking at making this trip the first week of August. Keep watching for more information as plans are finalized for this annual trip.

The Women's Association is planning another wonderful, fun-filled trip. This time to watch those hilarious Church Basement Ladies in their newest production "Rise Up O Men". A new musical comedy introducing the men of the church alongside your favorite ladies from the basement. As these hard-working farmers discuss "man stuff" they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen. But that's what happens when you let the rooster in the henhouse. The play will be on Thursday, September 20th at the Derby Dinner Playhouse in Clarksville. Cost of the trip is $34 a piece, we need at least 20 people to get this group rate price. Please see the sign-up sheet on the narthex podium.

Reverie Part 2

I just returned from two weeks of vacation and had an outstanding time! I loved being with my family. As Andrew said, we needed to put two weeks between us and the last year of our experiences. And boy did we!

We didn’t need a “Vacation” we needed a Sabbath! We needed Sabbath rest from the weary journey we had been on. We needed time to be with one another and with God. To refill our cup and bask in the Holy story that we had survived, to see the blessing and let go of the heartache, fear, and worry.

That's what Sabbath is for. God rested on the 7th day and told us to rest. So often we don’t, I know I certainly have not and have been burning the candle at both ends for months. This was a reminder of how much a good rest can relieve the burdens of life and put things in perspective.

We ALL should be resting. Have you rested? Have you truly taken a Sabbath time to connect with God and family? I hope so, if not please do so. It will mean the world to your life and your soul.

God bless you and keep you all this glorious day.


Rev. Dawn Black
