UPCOMING EVENTS: MARK YOUR CALENDARS
***COMMUNITY OUTREACH BLOCK PARTY – SATURDAY MAY 19, 2018 – 11:00-2:00 Come and have some fun with the children from the neighborhood. We will have bounce house, hot dogs & chips, popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy, games, door prizes ( 4 bikes and as many gift baskets as we can). There will be a list on the bulletin board for suggestions of the kind of gift baskets you can donate. Talk to a member of the activities committee (list is on bulletin board) to volunteer during this fun-filled ministry effort. We will need someone for registration, leading games, cooking hotdogs, visiting with our guests and much more. Watch the bulletins and the bulletin board for more information.
*** We are collecting packages of FLOWER seeds to be used when we take flyers to our neighborhood promoting our May 19 Block Party. We will need these flower seeds no later than May 9th. You can find these packages of FLOWER seeks reasonably priced at several stores in town. Notice the sale ads.

How are YOU going to Help???
*** 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 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.
***Anyone who would like to fill a shoebox or two on their own may pick up a shoebox & instructions from the church foyer. They will need to be filled and brought back to the church by the first week in November.
***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.
