Summer Schedule

In the month of August and on the first Sunday of September (Labor Day Weekend), all five services will be at 9 am at the Old Wye Church. Please mark your calendars now!

Children’s Church this Sunday

On Sunday, August 5th, there will be Children’s Worship Bulletins, with activities based on that Sunday’s readings, for children attending the service.

Free Opera Performance

On Friday, August 3rd and Saturday, August 4th you are invited to attend free performances of The Old Maid and the Thief. 7:30 pm — St. Paul’s Church in Oxford, MD. On August 5th at 2pm the opera will be performed at the Dorchester Center for the Arts on High Street in Cambridge, MD. Again, the performance is free. The cast includes Rebecca McCoy, Ashley Kitchelt, Morgan Schyler, and Timothy Coffelt. The accompanist is Becky Zinser and the director is Bonnie Forgacs. Please come enjoy the beautiful music and voices.

Crafts for the Christmas Bazaar

From Wednesday, July 11th and continuing until October 17th, ECW will have craft workshops every Wednesday in the Old Wye Parish Hall from 10:00 AM to Noon, to work on handmade items for the ECW Christmas Bazaar in November. Bring whatever projects you may already have started for the Bazaar, show us a new craft idea, or just work on projects underway. It’s fun, easy and a wonderful opportunity for convivial conversation! Bring a bag lunch to eat after we’re finished.

Donations to the Christmas Bazaar

The ECW very much appreciates the donations that have been made for the Bazaar. We rely on your “treasures” to help make the Bazaar a huge success! Our storage space, however, is filling up and we ask that you hold onto your donations until at least September. If that is not possible, please contact Betsy Johnston at 410–490–8062.

Shell trees for the Christmas Bazaar

Gloria Griffith has requested help gathering mussel shells for the trees she makes for the Christmas Bazaar. She will be happy to pick them up. The empty shells do not need to be cleaned and can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer to keep them fresh. For more information, give Gloria a call at 410–490–4320.

From Reverend Charlie

I ask your prayers for the repose of the soul of my brother Robert Osberger, for the light of Christ to shine upon him and for the Risen Jesus to be our hope and the assurance of a living faith in the life that is to come. Bob was a wonderful brother to me.

Haven Ministries

Haven Ministries is collecting children’s winter coats and winter items such as hats, gloves, scarves, mittens etc. for Make A Difference Day in November. The winter items can be gently used or new. No adult winter coats, please. Krista will collect and store the winter coats throughout the summer until the event. Please let me know if you have any to give and I will pick them up at either church. Thank you, Rick Culotta wyeheaven@aol.com or 410–829–3129.
