- ADVENT BOOKLETS
Fall is here and it’s time to start thinking about Advent Devotion Booklets. Everyone is invited to write a short devotion. The subject could be your thoughts about the season, a favorite carol, Christmas memories, etc. Feel free to write more than one. Invite your friends and relatives to help, too. The more the merrier! Devotions must be in by Sunday, November 13. Sign up on your connection card or contact Kathy Chapman at KathyLChapman@ yahoo.com.
- FALL BOOK SERIES
This fall, you are invited to join in an all-church read of the book Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren. We hope to learn what it means to be “Everyday Disciples.” Through our readings and sermon series, we will become aware of God’s presence in everyday practices. The plan is to read half the book this fall and then finish it during lent, so we’ll get double use out of one purchase! Please sign up on your connection card for your copy of the book to be ready for the big fall read. We’ll begin the second weekend in October. We’ll also offer growth groups
- OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Thanks for the overwhelming response to our request for OCC shoeboxes! Now we can begin collecting supplies. There is a list of needed items on the shelf in Mission Central, in the coatroom. You’ll also find a bin for gathering OCC supplies. Anything you can contribute will make a big difference to a child somewhere in the world and he or she will also hear about Jesus!
On your connection card, you can write in an item you are willing to purchase and tell the number you are willing to purchase. The following items are still needed: solar calculator, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, pencil bags, erasers, colored pencils, markers, rulers, plain colored t-shirts, washcloths, bars of soap, soap holders, toothbrushes, toothbrush holders, hairbrushes/combs, small balls or toys.
**Our goal is to fill 100 boxes. For a list of what we still need and to track our progress, check out our Operation Christmas Child page. Thank you.
- TUESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY IS BACK!!!!
If you have been waiting for the Tuesday morning Bible study to resume – wait no longer! Beginning Tuesday, September 13 the group will meet each Tuesday from 9:30 – 11 AM in Teen Room. They will study the book of Daniel. If you are interested in joining this group, please call Charlotte Chrysler, 394-5779 so that she knows how many people to prepare for.
- FAITH FRIENDS
The Education Team would like to try a new idea this coming school year. We would like to connect kids and adults in partnerships called “Faith Friends.” We want to teach our kids how important they are to God by showing them how important they are to us! Faith Friends would check in with each other on Sundays, share stories of their week, and exchange prayer requests. “Faith Friends” will encourage one another to become better disciples of Jesus. If you are willing to be a “Friend” to one of our kids, please indicate that on your connection card. “Faith Friends will be connected at our opening breakfast on Sept. 25th at 9:30 AM.
