Weekly Announcements

From the April 22, 2018 Bulletin

Announcements and Weekly Events

Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.


Children’s Worship Bulletins – There are Children’s Worship Bulletins available on the rail by the organ each Sunday with activities to do during worship.  There are separate ones for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.  Pick one up for your child.


Food Drive for Community Hope Center – We are hosting a food drive at our church throughout the month of April.  There are collection barrels at the entrances of the church.  We have already filled over one barrel!  You may bring food any Sunday in April or drop it off during the week during office hours (9 am – 3 pm).  See the list in the foyer for items needed.  You may also donate hygiene items in addition to food.  If you prefer to donate money, give it to Joyce Milligan or Mary Collier.


Lawn Mowing – If you are willing to be on a rotation to mow the church lawn this summer contact Barney Podner at 978-6679.  You will use the church’s equipment.


Missions Spectacular – On Saturday, June 2 we will be hosting Missions Spectacular.  Some will be helping host the event and others will be participating in one of the mission projects.  If you have not been enlisted to help host the event, you may be on a team that will be doing one of the mission projects.  If you want to be on our church’s team that works on one of the projects, sign up on the bulletin board.  The team will work from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.  The cost is $20 which includes your lunch and a t-shirt.  You must sign up by May 6.

1 Corinthians 16:14

Softball League – If you want to be on either the church’s co-ed softball team or the men’s softball team in the summer church league, sign up on the bulletin board.  You must be at least 16 years old to be on a team.


Audit Report – At our business meeting last Sunday night, a subcommittee of our church finance committee reported that they did an internal review of the 2017 financial records.  They reported that the finances are all in order.  You can see a copy of this report on the bulletin board.


New Deacon Enlistment – Please continue to pray for the new deacon enlistment.  Our present deacons are still praying and working through this process.  They will announce who are the new deacon candidates at the proper time.
