SOCIAL WITNESS & ADVOCANY TASK FORCE MEETING - The group that sponsored the SNAP Challenge in April is back in action!  The newly renamed “Social Witness and Advocacy Task Force” is currently planning events for action and advocacy this fall.  The task force has chosen economic inequality as its fall issue, especially as it relates to legislation requiring employers to pay a living wage to employees. If you are interested in getting involved with the work of the task force, please email Jessie Light (Jessie.light@villagepres.org) or plan to attend our next meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 12, in Room 132.

SING FOR YOUR SUMMER –The Summer Choir rehearses on Sunday mornings from 8:45 to 9:20 a.m. – then leads the music at the 9:30 a.m. service in the sanctuary. The music is fun and not too difficult – the choir does not wear robes – and everyone is welcome to sit with their friends or family in the congregation: the choir comes to the front and sings only the offertory, late in the service. Everyone is welcome – adults, youth, children. If you have questions, call the music office (913-671-2344) or simply show up on any Sunday you are in town.
