"God's work. Our hands"
Sunday morning, Sept. 7, 2014
We’re doing it again!
Mark your calendars!
Remember how much FUN we had as we packed
15,336 meal kits on Serving Sunday?
How united we felt Praising God, Serving Others?
This year we have agreed to pack 20,000 meals in two hours. We need your commitment and monetary support. Each meal kit costs 25 cents. So that means we need to raise $5,000 (plus transportation costs) for Stop Hunger Now to facilitate this project and bring the food for packing. Please prayerfully consider a $50+ offering this summer to help reach our goal. Look for monthly reminders and promotions. Thank you for your committed hands in prayer & service and offering your blessings.
Traditional Worship at 8am.
Refreshments will be served at 9am.
A shortened worship service will take place at 9:30am
in Fellowship Hall and then we will proceed with our service project.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 7th!
After we Praise God and Serve others from 9:30-11:30am with the Stop Hunger Now Serving event, you now can also stay for a tailgate/fellowship because it is also Rivalry Sunday!!! This is the opening home football game featuring the Cleveland Browns vs Pittsburgh Steelers. Please wear your football jerseys, T-shirts, or team colors to church on Sunday and plan to stay after the serving event to join in fellowship with others as we watch the football game in Fellowship Hall and cheer on your favorite team!
Refreshments and snacks will be provided by YAC as a fund raiser for
2015 Youth Gathering trip or you can bring your own.

TECHNOLOGY & VIDEO experts!
As many of you are well aware, we recently installed a monitor for announcements in the gathering space, along with a projection system for our sanctuary. We are now wanting to put together a "Techno Team" to help utilize and enhance our new capabilities. If you have some savvy and interest in this area, please talk to Pastor Randy.
