Summer’s not officially over, but in 2 weeks our poor kids will feel like it is. The Glendale schools start back up on August 16 and all the college kids will all start heading back too. Ashley put on another spectacular VBS for the entire community, as 210 little ones visited Peruvian culture at LCPC and learned about Jesus. The kids raised $1200 for Living Water International, which will provide clean water to 240 children in Peru for an entire year!  There were over 300 people at the Family Fiesta Night, enjoying dinner, snow cones, a petting zoo, a waterslide bounce house, songs and a skit. What a great evening!  The Youth Group has had a busy few weeks. The Ralston family hosted Cinco de Julio night with a viewing of the Nacho Libre movie and guests were treated to delicious Nachos – hope they wore their stretchy pants! A couple nights later, the young men at church participated in Man Night. What happens at Man Night stays at Man Night, but let’s just say there is evidence that it was a wild and crazy time!  CFC had a festive Red, White and Blue parade along Montrose Avenue to celebrate the USA for the July 4 holiday. The Bistro 50+ crowd and nearby neighbors came out to cheer the kids on, and thanks to John Gray, there was patriotic music playing from the church bell tower.  Kids Hope USA is looking for new mentors for this school year! By spending one hour a week mentoring a child at La Crescenta Elementary School, you can make a big difference in the life of a child who is falling behind in school. Applications are in the church office or you can contact Mary Wilson. PEAK will be starting back up on Wednesday August 23.  One Saturday last month, I noticed Elaine Ross Collins working all alone, doing her Cornerstone Crew work down in the parking lot flower beds. This is such an important ministry that serves our own church campus and it would sure be wonderful if there were more people that could join the Cornerstone Crew.  Contact the church office if you can help. Keep cool this month – the air conditioners are working great around here thanks to our dedicated property committee, so stop by Sunday mornings to beat the heat! Talk to you next month.  Be sure to check out my full report in this month’s messenger here on the website!
