DUMMERSTON -- A three-week series based on Anne LaMotte’s book, "Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers," will begin Sunday, June 16, at Dummerston Congregational Church. Worship begins at 9:30 a.m.

This Sunday’s focus is on "Help." The scripture is Exodus 2:23-3:10 and Philippians 4:6-7, and the sermon is "I Am Clueless, But Something Else Isn’t." The choir, under the direction of the Rev. Dr. Larrimore, will sing. Children begin in worship and then go to an open classroom. The Children’s Story is "All Precious in God’s Sight" based on Luke 12:7. Church school lessons this month focus on being kind to one another, at church, at home, at school, and at play.

Due to all who volunteered or donated to the youth group’s "Grillin’ it Up" fundraiser cookout last Sunday, a total of $1,250 was raised for the Jimmy Evans Scholarship Fund.

The church has begun its annual summer food drive for the Drop-In Center Food Pantry. The goal is 1,500 pounds of food staples, personal hygiene items and household goods by the end of August, which is more than 100 pounds a week. Especially needed are single serving meals in pop-top cans and high protein foods like tuna fish and peanut butter. Food may be left in the church entry.

The old-fashioned, all-you-can-eat strawberry supper will be held on Saturday, June 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. for $10. Sign-up sheets for workers for the strawberry supper are in the church entrance.
