July Staff & Vestry Meetings
Volunteers are needed to pick up the donuts for coffee hour and do light cleanup after it’s over. Please contact Ed LeBlanc at 409-5700 if you can help one Sunday. Money will be provided to purchase the donuts.
Also, with all this rain, the weeds have been invading the flower beds all around the church grounds. We rely on volunteers to maintain the flower beds. David Thomas has been volunteering to pull as many weeds as he can, and we thank him for going the extra mile to keep our grounds looking attractive. We encourage anyone, who is physically able, to pick a spot on the church grounds to pull weeds on a weekly basis. We will help you identify the weeds if you’re unsure what needs yanking.
Urgent plea! Jean Garrison and her parents are seeking a St. Barnabas’ church member who can give them transportation to and from the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service. They live in Wartrace. No one in their household can drive and they really want to become active in our parish. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Jean at 615-925-1129. They will pay gas expenses.
