Instruments are available to borrow – just contact Sarah Shaffer or Nancy Deeth.

Coming Soon: BSA Troop 474 Garage Sale
As the Boy Scout troop prepares for their annual sale (on Saturday, August 17th), they’ve begun to collect items for donation. For a free pick up of large or hard to transport items, call 614285-7051 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As is our summer tradition, we will have only one worship service each Sunday during the month of July. Please join us at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary for worship each week.
“Fourth Sunday” Mission Event
After a shortened worship service on Sunday, July 28th, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a number of service projects. Come to church in comfortable casual clothes and help us do the work God calls us to do.
One of the projects will involve aid to asylum seekers traveling to their sponsor’s location after being released from detention centers by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). These are individuals and families that have completed the lawful entry into the asylum system and have been on the road for up to 40 hours with very few, if any, provisions. We will create bags to be distributed to travelers during their travel stop in Columbus. If you’d like to contribute to this effort, lists of needed materials are located in the Narthex.
Summer Book Project – Stretch your mind and spirit this summer by joining in our first ever summer book project! All are invited to read The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, by Wes Moore, during the summer months and then join in a discussion at 10:00 a.m. on either Sunday August 11th or 25th. The book is the true story of two men who share the same name, who are raised in similar backgrounds, yet end up with completely different lives.
Where in the World is Overbrook this Summer? We’re asking you all again this year to please take a minute to send us a photo or a postcard of your summer adventures and we will post them each week in the Narthex on our “Where is Overbrook?” board. It’s a fun way to keep up with each other between Memorial Day and Labor Day. And, it’s a great conversation starter for Sunday morning coffee time! We welcome photos and postcards from your creative backyard adventures to your travels abroad. We can’t wait to see what you are up to this summer…and when you are home, we look forward to seeing you here at Overbrook! Postcards and photos can be mailed or emailed to the church office.
Children’s Mission Camp July 29 – August 2, 2019
Mission Possible Summer Mission Camp is a children’s summer camp experience focused on our call to help our neighbors! Rising 3rd – 6th graders will spend the week experiencing life in another’s shoes, acting in ways that are helpful to our neighbors, and celebrating our work. Each day will include group building, games, Bible study, a mission project, and fellowship – all themed under the umbrella of “What does Jesus call us to do?” Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day and costs $90 per person, which includes all lunches, snacks and fees. Registration forms are available on the bulletin board outside the church office. For questions, contact Mary Gause at email@example.com or 614-261-1040.
