The Sunday evening Bible Study will begin again on Sunday September 12, 2010 with a study of the book of Ephesians. Many have described this book as the mountain top of New Testament truth. Like a mountain peak this book offers an unparalleled views of God's grace and goodness in salvation. We will be held in awe of what grace actually is and how God has poured forth that grace in Christ. It is a honor and privilege to study this book together. Let's open this treasure chest together.

We’ll meet every Thursday from 10:00—11:00 am at the church.

Hospital Visit Kits

At Family Bible School this summer the children and families present participated in a few service projects, one of which was the creation of "Hospital Visit Kits". These are cups decorated and filled with a few handmade gifts (keep in mind that children of all ages helped make them) to serve as reminders of God's love and our love for those among us who are in the hospital. The gifts include cups, bracelets, bookmarks, sun-catchers, get well cards, and other little decorations to brighten up a hospital room!

When you know someone has gone into the hospital, please take a "Kit" to that person and explain that in addition to our prayers, this is a gift of love to them from us.

The "Kits" are in the box on the shelf across from the church office.

If you have any questions about these "Kits", please contact Annie Ball.

Another Mission Trip Already Planned

The Dominican Republic 2011 mission trip will be in January 2011. Total cost is around $990. Deposit of $500 will be due with a completed application form by October 3, 2010. Balance of $490 will be due by November 14, 2010. Interested? Please sign up soon.

Knitters Needed (UPDATED)

Attention all knitters: If you would like to participate in a simple knitting project for our missionaries in China, please see Marlene Murrin for details.

UPDATE: Yes, the project, which is a shawl for workers, may be crocheted. However, we would need to have our own pattern.
