“Back to School Blessing” and Fellowship Meal: August 4
August 4 is right around the corner, and we as a church are going to do a few things that day:
First of all, we're calling it "Back to School Blessing" and are encouraging everyone to bring backpacks with supplies and the food items listed below for Lakeview School's food program.
Secondly, we're going to pray for all of our students, teachers, faculty, and staff during service!
Third, we're going to share a meal together again, because, hey, who doesn't love food? Last name starting with A-L: bring a salad; / M-Z: dessert!
Food items for Lakeview: cereal bars, granola bars, Easy Mac / Mac ‘n Cheese Cups, crackers, Ramen Noodles, chicken Noodle Soup, fruit or Applesauce Cups, and Pop Tarts.
New Roof and No Debt
Swan Lake is looking to raise $75,000 by June 1, 2021 to pay off building debt and replace the roof . If you are able to increase your giving by $40 a month we will meet our goal! Indicate Bldg/Debt Fund in the memo of your check or select “Building/Debt Retirement Fund” through the Swan Lake website.
One of the dreams for our church is that every disciple is in a meaningful smaller group and meets regularly. Two great options for this are a Study Group or Sunday Suppers. Our hope is to continue to do Life Together and these two opportunities will do just that!
· Study Groups will meet every other week throughout the year to discuss a curriculum, a book, the Bible, or even the sermon…together! They will also look for ways to serve neighbors and the community throughout the year.
· The aim of Sunday Suppers is for 3 or 4 families to gather Sunday nights for food, fellowship, community, laughter, discussion, and Life…Together! We're intentionally not scheduling anything on Sunday nights as a church to give you a spot on your calendar to do this!

Communion and Benevolence
We will be celebrating Communion and taking a Benevolence Offering on the first Sunday of every month. If you would like to be part of the team that prepares Communion, please talk to Pastor James.
An envelope will be included in your bulletin on the first Sunday of the month for the specific purpose of giving to the Benevolence Offering. The plate will only be passed once during the service. Thank-you for considering both the General Fund and the Benevolence Fund as you give to Swan Lake. If you give online or choose not to give, please put the envelope in the recycle basket in the foyer.
