Mid-August Connection

And it’s that time of the week again…please make note of the things to have in mind as you plan your time!

Sunday is a full day!  Worship begins at 10:00.  Always a great way to start your weekend! Kids Connection is in place for the younger ones.  New members will be welcomed into the church during the worship service. Coffee time follows in Veno Hall.  Church members are reminded of the meeting that will be held during coffee time in Veno Hall.  This is to vote on proposed by law changes for our EFCA affiliation.  Hope to see you there!

Be sure and take a look at the table in the church entry on your way into church.  We have a few Bibles – some new and some gently used – help yourself!  There are a few copies of The Story and also a few soft-covered New Testaments.  All those are yours for the taking.  Be sure and take a look at the Resource Table and the racks in the Welcome  Center and  Veno Hall.  We try to keep those full of encouraging relevant reading materials for you to take along.

The Islam Study will meet on Monday evening (August 14th) in the Council Room at 7:00.

As the start of the school year draws near, there are a few needs that must be filled in order to ensure we can continue to offer Kids Connection on Sunday mornings throughout the school year.  We need two people to join our team of volunteers to work with our elementary aged kids one Sunday a month.  We’ll provide training and a time of shadowing other volunteers to help ease into the role!  We also need one more person to join our rotation of nursery volunteers who provide care and activity for our toddlers on a once a month basis.  This ministry is crucial to helping shine the light of God’s love to our kids and families!  Contact Meg if you want to learn more!

 Since the July trip to an outdoor movie was such a blast, we’re going to be doing it again in August!  Wednesday August 16th we’ll be meeting up as a group to enjoy the festivities at Patriot Place for another family movie night under the stars!  Festivities begin around 6pm.  Getting there by 7pm will ensure we can get seats in a good spot. The movie usually starts around 8pm.  Pack some snacks and a lawn chair.  Please RSVP to Meg by August 14. faithfulmeg@yahoo.com

Our very own Chris Marinuzzi was featured this week on the new Boston NBC affiliate www.nbcboston.com.   There was a video segment “The Cup is the Canvas at Ogawa Coffee in Boston”  and yes indeed it features Chris as the latte artist.  Be sure and check it out!

COMING SOON:  

August 20th – After a July break, our next Meetinghouse Concert will be on the 20th featuring The Perrys.   A great and FUN evening of wonderful music.  Tickets are available at the door for $20.  The evening begins at 6:00

August 23rd – The Open Door will be reopening on September 6th.  In order to be ready…there will be a BIG kitchen clean-up done on Wednesday the 23rd at 10:00.  Your help is needed to get things cleaned up and organized prior to the start of the Open Door.

August 27th – Nursery and Kids Team Rally on the 27th, following worship, from 11:30-1:30.  This is for all those involved with Kids Connection ministries.  Questions ? Please see Meg
