Tomatofest: On Thursday, July 13, we will celebrate Tomatofest at the Farmers’ Market. Our vendors will have a variety of tomatoes on sale, and everyone who makes a tomato purchase will have their name entered in a special drawing. We will also have a Tomato Cook-Off that day! Everyone is invited to bring a cold tomato finger food to share. Our vendors will vote on their favorite tomato dish and the winner and prize will be announced at 5:00 pm. Sign-up on the insert if you plan to enter to Cook-Off!
OUR Farmers’ Market continues its 10th season on Thursdays! Our Market will continue regular hours of 3:00-6:30 pm each Thursday. Make sure to join us! We have welcomed back many of our vendors, along with a couple of new vendors. Fresh and local produce, meats, baked goods, and handmade crafts will all be available on our front lawn! Help us spread the word and invite your family, neighbors and friends!

Music Ministry Endowment Fund: Every week ECC is richly blessed with music as an important aspect of our worship. To augment the budgeted funds for these efforts your Music Committee has newly established a Music Ministry Endowment Fund. Your support of this fund may be to: General Needs, Guest Musicians, Choir Soloists, Music Camp, Hand Bell Maintenance, Organ Maintenance, Piano Maintenance, Other ___________. This Endowment Fund is an excellent channel for your expression of love at a time of memorial giving or to honor someone. It provides for beauty long after flowers will have faded. If your heart sings a melody after worship services may it inspire you to remember this newly created way for gift giving and sharing in the splendor of our music.
Organ and Vocal Recital CDs are on sale! You can purchase CDs from the church office during office hours. Proceeds will benefit Elon Community Church’s music Program.
COME SHARE:2ND AND 4TH WEDNESDAYS OF THE MONTH AT 2:00 PM, AND 4TH TUESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 7:00 PM IN THE LIBRARY. How do we get a chance to share about our losses and the pain of losing special people in our lives? We have had many loved ones pass from our midst and we need a safe place to share the feelings and maybe just stories of what we are experiencing. Pastor Randy will lead this group and you are invited to attend no matter how long it has been or who it is, just let this be a time to… Come Share. No sign-up necessary.
Let's Get Exercise: Now that things have settled in Elon with most of the students gone, we would like to start a walking group. Let us know by signing up on the insert in the bulletin if you would be interested in a morning group or an evening group. You may walk at your own pace but have others to share time with and get to know from our faith community. Questions, see Sharon Wheeler.
Torch Deadline: This is just a friendly reminder that the deadline for the July issue of the Torch is on Monday, June 19. Please submit any articles or photos you may have by this date. Your cooperation is appreciated!
