**IMPORTANT NEWS** We have just received word that the church hall floor removal and asbestos abatement will begin on Wednesday or Thursday next week. NO GROUPS, COUNCILS, OR COMMITTEES WILL BE ABLE TO MEET IN THE HALL OR CLASSROOMS BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22. We do not have contact information for every group and will be posting signs as well.

FORMED FEATURED CONTENT FOR AUGUST:
Living by Design, Not by Default
With so much technology at our fingertips, it's tough not to be swept away in all the noise and clutter. In our society, there's often a tendency to live passively by simply "going with the flow." In this talk given at a FOCUS national conference, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains how we need to live an intentionally Christian life within a technological age.
