Living the Acts 1:8 Challenge

Announcements

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering: WE DID IT! Our goal was $5500.00.  The total we raised was $5655.15 and we exceeded our goal.  It will go to provide ministries on our college campuses in southern WV.  If you haven't given, you can still give.  We will still collect until the end of the month.
 
Mission Opportunity To Assist Local Family: Phase 1: Thursday, June 1, 9:00 am - Window Install.  Meet at the church at 9:00 am.  We will be installing windows in their home.  We will be installing windows in their home.  Phase 2: Saturday, June 10, 9:00 am: Door install, yard work, trash pick up.  Bring yard tools - this is a Family Mission Project.
 
Tissues Needed / Mission Opportunity:  The Jesus Lovers  (3 yr.– 2nd gr.) and Get-Along Gang (3rd – 5th gr.) are in need of boxes of tissues to deliver to Heritage House for their Mission Project each month.  If you are out and about, pick up an extra box or two, and throw it in the big trash can in the foyer to help them out. They will be doing their Mission project the first Sunday of each month immediately following the morning worship service.  Their next mission opportunity to deliver tissues will be June 4, 2017.

Free Event for All Ages: On Friday, June 9, at 7:00 pm we will have a singer in the sanctuary doing a show entitled "Not Your Rapper's Rapper."  He is a Christian rap musician.  It is free to all on a first come, first serve basis.  There will be a love offering taken during the performance.
 
VBS Meeting:   Therewill be a meeting for all VBS teachers and helpers on Monday, June 12 at 6:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.  We will go over all the important information about material about SUBMERGERED! our VBS for this year, hand out each teacher's  material, and answer any questions you may have about the program.  If you are interested in helping or becoming a teacher for this year's VBS, please contact the church office at 304-255-4021 or Bruce Meadows at 304-575-0475.
 
New Prayer Chain Coordinator: We have a new prayer chain coordinator.  Her name is Vanessa Scott, and if you have any prayer needs, you can contact her at any time with your prayer needs.  You can call or text her at 304-207-3991 or e-mail her at nessie1275@gmail.com and she will get your prayer concerns out on our prayer chain. 
 
Help with a craft for VBS: We need help with a craft from you for VBS.  One of our crafts calls for milk jug lids for a craft.  WE did some research, and have found that they are slightly too small.  But we did find out that 32 ounce Gatorade lids  work wonderfully. We also found out that the lids from the super size bottles of Cranberry Juice, Hawaiian Punch,Hi-C, and similar brands, those will work also.  So if you drink those, or buy them for your kids, please save the lids for us if you would.  VBS will be July 12-16, so if you will just rinse the lids out, and return them to us by June 21 that will give us time to get them ready for VBS.  We would really appreciate it.
 
Schedule for the Cove Now Available in the Office:  The office now has a schedule for The Cove, The Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, NC.  All Seminars are free of charge in 2017.  However material, food and lodging fees apply.  They also have concerts there as well.  The concerts are as low as $55.00 a person. If you are interested in the schedule, seminars, or concerts at the Cove, please see Anita in the office.
