Thursday Thoughts

1. Sunday Worship - This Sunday Pastor Debbie will conclude our current preaching series, Teach Us To Pray, as we focus upon all the different parts of the Lord's Prayer. Our focus this week will center on the final piece of the prayer: "and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power and the power forever." We'll talk about the nature of sin and temptation and how we find strength in God to face those challenges. It's also UMW Sunday and you will notice the women assisting in various parts of the worship services and hear briefly about their mission and ministry.  Invite a friend to join us as we look to these ideals and more. Hope to see you there!

2. Wednesday Night Dinner and Activities - Dinner menus are printed each week in the bulletin. Please make your reservations for dinners by signing on the attendance pads in worship or by calling the church office by Monday of each week. Dinner is $6 a person or $14 for a family (three or more).

As part of this time together there will several discipleship opportunities for ALL AGES to participate:

4. Farewell Luncheon - The time is coming when we will bid adieu to Linda, our beloved Office Manager. One of the ways we will do this is with a covered dish luncheon in her honor THIS Sunday, September 27th after the 11am service in our Family Life Center. Linda is retiring October 1st and this will be an opportunity for you wish her well and thank her for all she has done for our church family. Please bring your favorite dish to share and we hope to see you all there as we honor Linda!
