Week of September 18

September Newsletter

No Wonderful Wednesday Program this week. Enjoy fall break. 

Mid Week Prayer Group: You are invited to join us this Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. in the Conference Room. We will meet each week to come together in prayer for individuals, our church, our community and our world. If you have questions, please contact Ann Cook.

Bus Drivers Needed: The Go-Go’s and the youth rely on the buses to get us to our activities but are of no use to us without a driver. We need to compile a small list of eligible drivers so we won’t have to ask the same one over and over. The large bus requires a driver with a CDL license. The small bus can be driven by most anyone who has been approved by our Insurance carrier.

Save the Date for the Ice Cream and Pie Social– Sunday, September 24. It has been decided to not have the fall festival this year. Instead, we will have an ice cream and pie social. There will be a sign-up sheet soon for entries. We are requesting home-churned ice cream and made from scratch pies.  There will be more information coming soon. Be sure to mark your calendars. 

The next Sew Comfy sessions will be October 3rd at 6:30 pm in the  Adult Sunday School wing.  Please join us for fun fellowship while we make mastectomy pillows for those recovering from cancer surgery.  No sewing skills needed. Monetary donations for supplies also needed.  Contact Debra Brown or Lynn Lowrey for more information.

New Wednesday Night Adult Bible Study led by Eddy Smith begins on 9/27. 

Go-Go’s Trip to Greensboro: On Thursday, September 21, the Go-Go’s will be going to Greensboro, GA. We will tour the Oconee Brewing Company, the town with a guide and having lunch. We will leave the church at 9 am and return about 3:30 pm. Cost of the trip is $5  for the bus plus your lunch. Please call or email Pam Ketner to reserve a seat on the bus. 

Save the date: Tuesdays (September 26-October 17) Join us for a 4-week study of The Go Guide: 10 Steps for Innovations in Ministry from Luke 10 with co-author Rev. Donna S. Mote, PhD. In ten brief chapters, Bishop Rober C. Wright and Missioner Donna S. Mote excavate and examine ten principles for innovations in ministry drawn from the Gospel of Luke Chapter 10 that address questions for the Church going into the world. We challenge ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately, and grow spiritually. You can also buy the Kindle version or audio version for 6.99 on Amazon. 

New Hearing Devices: As you may be aware we have a new sound system, we also upgraded the audio system to assist the hearing-impaired in worship. We have receivers that can be used during the service and returned. You may also purchase your own receiver if you wish. you can place an order with Destiny Williams or Chuck Standard.
