SEPTEMBER Newsletter 2010
Our fall schedule of activities is already beginning and there is more to come.
There is the excitement of a new school year, Confirmation and Sunday School, Bible Classes, Hannah’s Helping Hands, other board meetings and Family Fun Nights. But the real EXCITEMENT is that all of these activities will center in and around our Savior Jesus and His Word. Without Christ we would be eternally lost and without His Word we would be spiritually dead. May the Spirit make this year the year WE GET INVOLVED and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Savior. Then out of love for Him, we will all willingly serve Him and one another.
S.S. Teachers: Our first meeting is after church on Sunday, Sept. 5th. We are still in need of one or two more teachers. Please contact Pastor Bernthal if you are able to help.
SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY DAY & CHURCH PICNIC
Our opening of Sunday School will be September 12. After Church/S.S. a rally will take place. Our Sunday School/Church picnic will follow with games and special activities. Make a point to be here for this special day. Please bring a meat to grill (hot dogs, brats, hamburgers) and a dish to pass. Please also sign the sheet in the entry-way if you are planning on coming.
B.O.C.E.: will meet on Thursday, Sept. 16th at 7:00 p.m.
CHURCH COUNCIL: will be meeting on Sunday, Sept. 19th at 11:15 a.m.
LADIES: The first meeting of the fall is on Tuesday, Sept. 21st at 7:00 p.m. Come, be enriched and serve your Lord.
