Don't let the rain keep you from the Cottage Prayer Meeting happening at Brent and Janis Metz's house tonight. Two weeks ago the Holy Spirit arrived in a mighty way. We expect the same as we gather to pray for each other, our church, and our world.
Tomorrow night is Spaghetti Night! The Teens are raising money for a mission trip to Wilmington, NC. They'll need the church's support to get them there. Join us tomorrow for a spaghetti dinner hosted by the teens. It will be a great time of fellowship and food.
Since you’re already coming to the dinner, why not stick around for our new midweek study: What about Prayer? We’ll be going through Skye Jethani’s book What if Jesus was Serious about Prayer? This study is intended to “take us deeper into what Jesus had to say about prayer and how it will change the way [we] relate to God forever.”
Don’t forget to mark down September 19th as a DO NOT MISS Sunday. Cancel all other plans and make sure you’re
here. That is our annual picnic, though I have started to call it Homecoming. We want everyone who is a part of the church to be here that Sunday. So bring a dish to share, invite friends, and call people who haven't been in worship in a while. Let's get everyone together for a great day. On top of the picnic and everything else, we have rescheduled John Ashby's installation as youth pastor to this Sunday.
You don't want to miss it!
Each September our Mission's Focus is the Alabaster offering. This is a special offering used specifically for constructing buildings. Throughout the world Alabaster funds have been used to build schools, hospitals, and churches. We collect change in these boxes and then on September 26th, we will do an Alabaster March as we deposit our offerings in a jar. If you do not have an Alabaster Box, please see Emily Shelden.
