Sew Comfy: Please join the Sew Comfy Ministry for our next session Tuesday, August 30, at 6:30 pm in the Men’s classroom. We’ll have fun making mastectomy pillows for women recovering from cancer surgery in Henry County. No sewing skills necessary and monetary donations are always needed for materials.

MPC Orchestra- I would like to invite everyone young and old alike to join MPC’s Orchestra. We rehearse twice a month on Wednesday from 6-6:45 pm and play once a month at both services on Sunday. Even if you haven’t played for years we would love to have you join us. Contact Jason for more information. 

Handbells- Have you rung handbells in a past life and want to give it another try? A Joyful Ring has a spot for you! Give J.G. Humphries a call and start tintinnabulating again. IF you read music, come learn a fun way to make a “joyful noise!” We were all beginners once, plus you get a fabulous blue shirt to wear when we ring! 

Bible Study: Ginger Irby will be leading a Run for God Bible Study beginning Wednesday, August 24. This is a 12 week Bible Study and devotional for all types of runners and walkers. Our plan is to run/walk and hopefully participate in a 5K the last week. The Turkey Day 5k will be the perfect race for us on Thanksgiving morning and gives us exactly 12 weeks, not counting the week of fall break in September, to complete the course. Here is the link where anyone interested can get additional information: www.runforgod.com. If interested, please email Ginger Irby.

AARP Drivers Safety Course will be held at MPC in the Good News Sunday School Classroom on Friday, September 9 from 9 am till 4pm. This is a good way to sharpen your driving skills and perhaps earn a discount on your auto insurance. The cost for this class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. If you have any question or would like to enroll, please contact Bob Williams.
