We welcome this Sunday The Rev. Barbara Abbott, our interim rector.  Please greet her warmly and introduce yourself.

Outreach: Backpacks needed for Darby Project.   The Rev. Doris Rajagopal works very hard with the Darby Project and is in need of backpacks for children. Specifically, they need many backpacks for elementary boys and girls and about 5-6 larger ones for middle/high school. You can drop them off at church in the box in the office hall any time before August 21st as the project wants to present the children with the backpacks on their last day of camp the following week. Please help give these children a good start to their school year with a new backpack.
