Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Is it just me that thinks the summer has just flown by? And the older I get the faster it flies. Now that I
have your attention, the good news is there are many exciting things coming in the life of our church this fall! Take
a minute to check ‘em out.
Continuing this Sunday, our Worship Committee, after a summer of worship
services at 8 and 10, has decided we will continue that
schedule into the fall.
A Classic Grace service at 8 & a Joyful
Noise contemporary service at 10.
September 10 Sunday School begins at 8:55am, and goes till
9:55, thus enabling kids and parents to worship together either at 8 or 10.
September 10 I will be
offering a 30 minute adult Bible study in the fellowship hall led by the pastor. The time will be from 9:15 to
9:45 Just enough time to drop the kids off at Sunday School, or pick up a goodie at the hospitality table before you
head downstairs. September through November we will be studying the Gospel of Matthew, and
beginning in December we will study the book of Mark. The verses we study together will be the same as those preached
on that Sunday. You don't have to be a Biblical scholar to attend, we all just use the table of contents. Sign up in the narthex.
