Speaker: Pastor Greg Frezza
“Kingdom Commitment: Forsaking All to Follow”
This morning, our children are going to sing the songs they learned this past week at Vacation Bible School. We welcome their families and friends who are here to take part in our final day of VBS. The kids learned about Jesus, and took part in games, crafts, and activities. Yesterday we had a barbeque to wrap things up. It was a wonderful week.
We invite parents and their children to join us at church again to hear more about the Lord and grow in your faith.
Thank you/Evaluation Luncheon
Our thanks to the many people who helped to make VBS possible. Our teachers, decorators, artists, laborers, cooks, clean up crew, shoppers, and most of all, Mrs. Linda Mazek, who worked hard to give the children a memorable experience, and go home with the Love of God in their hearts. We thank you!
We would like the volunteers (you know who you are) to join us next Sunday, August 3rd at 12:30 pm for a luncheon at Buddy’s Pizzeria on Hayes and Hall Roads. There we will evaluate this year’s VBS and talk about ways to improve next year’s program. If you are able to make it, let Linda Mazek know so she can make reservations. See you there!
Successful Car Wash
Thank you to all who participated in the Youth Group Car Wash last Sunday. The event raised $450 for our kids to go to camp! Thank you for participating and for opening your hearts (and wallets) to the kids. Great job Youth Group!
Operation Fill-A-Backpack Today
The deadline is today for those of you who wish to donate school items to Operation Fill-A-Backpack. There is a box at the back of our sanctuary to receive your donations. Thank you so much.

From the beginning, the Fisherman’s Net has been involved in promoting God’s Love through the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ. By accepting Jesus’ instructions, we can have access to God through repentance and the forgiveness of our sins. By this process, we become connected to Him in a personal way.
To understand God’s purposes for our lives, we turn to what we consider the “Manual for Life”, the Holy Bible. The Net provides a comprehensive Bible study program throughout the year for both young and old.
At the Net, ministry takes on various forms of expression: Music, Drama, Intercessory Prayer, Helps, Exhortation, Counseling, Youth, Teen, Community Outreach and Foreign Missions are some examples.
