Why do you do what you do? This is a question we will explore on Sundays September 9, 23 and 30 in a gathering time after worship. All are invited to join in this discussion time as we reflect on the sermon texts for those Sundays and consider what motivates us to live out our faith in the world. These gatherings are part of the research I am doing for the final project of my D. Min process. Come and share our thoughts.
With September comes the starting up of committees. Please make sure you know when your committees meet and be ready for those first meetings of the program year.
Everyone is invited to the All Church Picnic Sunday, September 16! Dave and Nancy McCahan have once again agreed to host this annual event, so join us at their home after worship on September 16 for a time of food, fellowship, and fun. Please bring something to cook on the grill for yourself and a side dish or dessert to share with others. Everyone is welcome. There is no need to sign up – just show up!
The Fall Church Retreat is scheduled for Saturday, September 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Anawan Club. Watch for more details coming very soon.
Home Bible Study with Ellsworth Starring will begin on Wednesday, September 12 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This weekly study will be held on Wednesday evenings at Ellsworth’s home. The focus for the next several weeks will be Romans, Chapter 5 and the topic of justification. All are welcome.
Sign ups for Fellowship time and flowers are needed. If you can assist with either refreshments for the after worship fellowship time or with flowers for the Sanctuary on a Sunday, please sign up on the respective sheet.
