UPCOMING EVENTS: MARK YOUR CALENDARS
SOUTHSIDE PARADE – September 15, 2018
All interested in walking in the parade and passing out bottles of water, meet at the old Dairy Queen on King Hill Avenue around 8:00am. The trailer will take you to the starting point of the parade and back to your cars after the parade. WE NEED MORE WATER! Many thanks to all who have brought water and to Marcia Mitchell for labeling each bottle with Copeland’s name and address, phone number and web page address. For questions, contact Lori McClain or Shawna Wheeler.
*** SJBA Annual Meeting will be Sunday, September 23rd from 4:00-6:00pm. This meeting will be held at Journey Church, 5708 King Hill Avenue. Only elected messengers can vote but everyone is invited to attend.
QUARTERLY FELLOWSHIP LUNCH—September 30 after the morning Worship service. All are invited to stay for this time of fellowship with the church family. Bring one or two dishes of your favorite recipes to share and plan to enjoy the afternoon with your church family. There will be no worship service that evening.
*** Pastor James has called monthly ministry (committee) meetings for the second Sunday of each month after the morning worship service. This is the time to share with other committee members about what we are doing and to be on the same page about happenings in the church life. A representative (or more) from each elected how each committee needs to be present at these meetings to report
*** TOUCH TUESDAY is every Tuesday night at 6:00 pm. This is the time to visit those who have visited our services and those who haven’t been here for a while. Contact Pastor James or Jerald Holcomb to let him know you want to be a part of this very important ministry.
*** We need to restock the food pantry to be able to donate Thanksgiving baskets in November and Christmas baskets in December. Bring items that can be used for a Thanksgiving (or Christmas) meal as well as food staples and toiletry items we normally need.
*** ATTENTION!!!! The Children’s Ministry is in need of help during the morning worship time. Tammy Auxier has put a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for help each Sunday until the end of October. Also a sign up sheet for help with snacks/drinks for the children during Children’s Church. This is such an important ministry for the children and will be a big help for Tammy. She will have all the sessions prepared for each Sunday. PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER HELPING WITH THIS VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR CHURCH MINISTRY.
***NOTE :The W.M.U. would like to thank everyone for their donations toward Operation Christmas Child, they were able to send 40 generously filled shoe boxes to needy kids around the world. They will begin in January to collect items for next year. Thanks again.
REMEMBER: We will continue to save Best Choice labels to be turned in to the church office or give them to Shirley McKnight, with this money going to missions.
