Living the Acts 1:8 Challenge

Announcements

 Wednesday Night Suppers : We are now serving a meal in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 PM prior to our Bible Study at 6:30 PM.  There will be a donation box on the counter for donations for the meals to help offset the cost of food.  Anyone interested in joining our cooking teams, please let us know. The menu for each night is picked by the cooks for that night.   We look forward to sharing a meal and fellowshipping with you.  The schedule of who is cooking  is on the Wednesday Night Supper page on this website.
 
Operation Backpack Is Back! We are going to participate in Operation Backpack with Send Relief, which is a collaboration between the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board. This year we are going to fill our backpacks for the Women’s Resource Center and Birthright.    There is a suggested list of items for each type of backpack on a separate page on this website.  You can pick up the backpack, and sign up for what kind of backpack you wish to fill in the foyer of the church and how many.   Please return your backpack by July 10, so they can be distributed to the WRC and Birthright in a timely manner.  Thank you for participating in this year’s Operation Backpack, and we hope you get a blessing out of giving!
