Late August Connection

Good Morning,  Hope you are looking forward to the weekend!  As summer winds down, things are starting to gear up for autumn here at your church.  Please make note of what pertains to you.  There are plenty of ways for you to be involved!

Our back-pack collection is growing!  We have been getting a great response to our publicity!  As we prepare to distribute the filled backpacks, these are the items that are needed:  trial size deodorant, chap stick, hair brushes, sturdy combs, washcloths or hand towels (gently used or new) , trial size Kleenex, small notebooks and bottles of water.  Please keep in mind that all items must be able to fit into a backpack.  Thanks for your help!  Donna Wood is the one to speak to with any questions.

After a well-deserved break, our volunteers will be back for our Open Door ministry September opening.    Be sure and read your bulletin insert on Sunday to see the ways that you can be a part of this great outreach.  Also, next Wednesday, August 23rd is the BIG cleaning day for the kitchen.  This is the time when everything is given a thorough cleaning, items are reorganized and things are readied for the Open Door opening on September 6th.  If you are free around 10:00 on the 23rd, your help is greatly needed!  Speak to Georgia or Marie with any questions.

Sunday evening at 6:00 is the next Meetinghouse Concert.  Have you been to any of them?  Have you left humming a new tune?  These are great evenings!  The Perrys will be the featured group this time.  Tickets are available at the door.  Hope to see you there!

Back to Church Sunday, September 17, is coming fast!  It’s a great time to start thinking about our fall routine, and how we can encourage our families, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to join in the great things going on here at our church.

As we look to the kick off of the fall season, there’s some ministry needs that are crucial to ensure we can continue to offer a great Sunday morning experience for regular members and visitors alike.  Don’t be intimidated if it’s something new- there are plenty of people to help walk you through the learning process!

We need:
2 people to help with our Kids Connection offerings once a month.
1 person to join our monthly nursery rotation
2 people to join a monthly rotation to help with the projection screens.
People who can serve as greeters and ushers.
People who can assist with coffee time- setting up, providing food, and clean up.

Everyone’s help is greatly appreciated.  The church office can help you connect with ministry team leaders to get you plugged in!

Back by popular demand…the WISH Bake Sale!  WISH will be sponsoring an Autumn Bake Sale on Sunday, September 17th during coffee time.  Typically the Bake Sale has happened on Mother’s Day but the response was so great, the WISH group is happy to offer it again!

Sunday worship begins at 10:00.  Let our time of worship together set the tone for the week ahead!  We have an uplifting  service planned with music, message, prayers and praises.  Coffee time follows in Veno Hall.  As mentioned above the Meetinghouse Concert begins at 6:00pm.

The Islam Study meets on Monday evening at 7:00 in the Council Room.

The Administrative Team will meet on Wednesday evening at 7:00 at Janna’s home.
