|A Celebration of Handcraft
We are planning a special Sunday in September called “A
Celebration of Handcraft.” On that Sunday, September 6th,
after service we will have tables set up in the Cornerstone for
you to display or even sell your handcrafts. We believe it’s a
way to honor God for your giftedness. It’s only for our regular
attendees (no outside vendors). There’s no fee--it’s just for
fun! Please let us know of your interest. We will have hot dogs
and goodies for sale. We hope you like the idea! Let us know if
you would like a table!
|Magic Show Fund Raiser
On Friday night, September 18th we have planned a special
night for the whole family-- a pasta dinner and magic show.
This night will also raise funds for our heater project. The
food will be great and there will be plenty of it. The
magician is Dennis Jones, who is great fun for the whole
family. The cost for the night is $12.00 for adults and $8.00
for kids 12 and under. For tickets call Joe Sugar. You can
pay by cash or check. Y’all come!!
|Wednesday Night Alive
We begin another season of Wednesday Night Alive (WNA) on
Wednesday, September 9th at 6:00 P.M. These evenings begin
with dinner—sometimes prepared for you and sometimes
“covered dish.” The cost of prepared dinners is $6.00 per
person. By the way, we are looking for people to help prepare
the meals, with training if you need it!
Following dinner we sing a little, pray for your needs and then
enjoy a study time before leaving at 8:00 P.M. You need to make
a reservation each time, using the pew registry or by calling the
church office by the Monday before the dinner. This month, on
September 9th, we will have meatloaf, roasted potatoes, green
beans, salad and dessert. It’s a good time for a good price—but
don’t forget to sign up!
|Stained Glass Classes
We have had a great time in our stained glass
classes. We have completed twenty-nine panels of
glass and installed them in the church. All the
glass and supplies have been paid for by those
who dedicated the windows. We have two more
panels we hope to finish this Fall. We have
become like a family as we have worked together
on the projects.We will begin classes again for the
experienced glassers on Monday,
September 14th at 6:30 P.M.
If you have never done anything like this, we
will hold a Beginners Class on Thursday,
September 10th at 6:30 P.M. We need you to sign
up if you are interested. Even if you would just
like a refresher, join us on the 10th. Everyone
who comes will take home your own project!
|New Fall Schedule
Beginning Sunday, September 13th, we will begin to
have two services again on Sunday morning. At 9:15 A.M.
we will begin the day with our Contemporary Service, with
our Praise Band with their great music. We invite our
Sunday School adults and kids to join us for the first fifteen
minutes of worship. Then at 9:30 A.M. they will head to
class as we continue the service.
At 11:00 A.M. we will begin our Traditional Service with
our Choir and the great hymns and choruses of our faith.
Pastor will share the same message at both services.
Mark the date down so you won’t forget!
|Beyond Youth Ministry
If you are a High Schooler or Middle Schooler, we
have a special event planned for you in September!
On Thursday, September 17th we’ll be headed to
the Keswick Youth Rally. We meet at 6:15 P.M. and
car pool to Keswick, which is 20 minutes away in
Whiting. The night begins with some worship led by
the Youth Pastors. Then you can use the pool, hot
tub, gym or play go-go ball. It’s a great night at no
cost, unless you want to buy something at the snack
bar. We’ll be home by 9:30 P.M. You just need to let
Pastor know you’d like to come, so he can have
enough transportation. Come and join us!
