Tomorrow night we will be welcoming our summer interns.  Logan Keim will only be here a few weeks and Lizzy Smith will be here for the summer.  We will meet at the regular time (7 PM).  The interns will be sharing in a devotional, then we will have pizza and a movie.  You are welcome to leave at the normal time (8 PM) or hang around for snacks, pizza, and a movie.  We will be done by no later than 10 PM.  No charge, just bring a 2-liter OR a bag of chips OR a sweet snack.  (if you can’t bring anything, that’s OK)
