We are still in need of about 10 more Christmas trees to use as “forest” decorations for VBS next week. If you would be willing to lend us one (or more) for next week, you can drop it off at church this week and leave it in the youth room downstairs, marked with your name. You could also drop it off on Saturday, between 10 am and 2 pm, when FOTC hosts their car wash, or bring it to church on Sunday. We will need them by Sunday, at the latest, because we will begin decorating right after church. They can be picked up the following Sunday, 8/12.
