Church News/Preview

Our Christian sympathy is extended to the families of Si Burger who was called to heaven on August 2nd. And to Derek Phelps' family on the passing of Derek's father, Gerald Phelps, on August 6th. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Everyone is invited to the Church Picnic Saturday, August 11th at the home of Jim and Jane Lueking. Plan on coming out for a great time of food and fellowship. Don't forget to bring your swimming suit for a jump in the pool starting at 3:30 p.m. Dinner will start at 5:30. Please bring a covered dish to share

Our church will be serving Soup On Saturday this Saturday, August 11th at the Methodist Church. This is a wonderful opportunity to share God's love with those in our community. Volunteers are needed to provide soup, sandwiches, desserts and to work. Soup on Saturday was started approximately 16 years ago by 7 churches that saw a need for something like this in our community. At one point 14 churches were sharing this weekly mission, but this year they are down to 9 churches and next year will be down to 8. To help fill this void David Holt, Leroy Barnhill and Jack Terrell are calling on the men of the churches to step up and take a turn serving, they are calling themselves the "Clam Chowder Marching Society". If you would be interested in helping these men, contact David Holt for more information and serving dates. Our church will be serving Soup On Saturday again on October 20th.

The Trustees will be meeting on Monday, August 13th at 6:00 p.m. in the Seekers Room.

Full Life Development will be hosting a Silent Auction on Thursday, August 16th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Items to be bid on are Thai items that are being provided by Bethany, gift baskets, and gifts certificates. Everyone is invited to come for cookies and punch. All proceeds will go to support Full Life Development's missionary work in Thailand. If you would be interested in putting together a basket or another item to donate, please contact Becky Noel.

Megan Gainey and John Stultz will be joined in marriage on Saturday, August 18th in the church sanctuary.

The Session will be meeting on Tuesday, August 21st at 5:00 p.m. in the Library.

Mark your calendars and plan on joining our church family and friends on our annual Holiday World Trip. Weather you enjoy the face pace of the Thunderbird rollercoaster or prefer the slow pace of the Baharl River, there is something for everyone. We need at least 15 people to get the discounted group rate of $38.99, please see the sign-up sheet on the narthex podium if you are interested in going.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the Butterfly Garden on the west end of the church building, please feel free to do so. We have a wonderful variety of flowers and colors that the butterflies are enjoying. All the flowers were brought in by friends and family of Jeri Wampler during her memorial service.

The Women's Association is in need of a volunteer to check on the Little Free Library at the church. The Little Library will need to be registered with the library, checked on once a week, and the counter will need to be reset as needed. If you are interested in doing this please contact Connie Hawkins. The Little Free Library was set up at the church a couple of weeks ago and visitors were seen using it within the first couple of days. A dedication ceremony will be held at a later date. The Little Free Library is open to anyone to take a book or bring a book to share.

Saturday, September 1st, the Fellowship Hall is reserved.

Monday, September 3rd, the church office will be closed for Labor Day.

The Women's Association is planning another wonderful, fun-filled trip. This time to watch those hilarious Church Basement Ladies in their newest production "Rise Up O Men". A new musical comedy introducing the men of the church alongside your favorite ladies from the basement. As these hard-working farmers discuss "man stuff" they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen. But that's what happens when you let the rooster in the henhouse. The play will be on Thursday, September 20th at the Derby Dinner Playhouse in Clarksville. Cost of the trip is $34 a piece, we need at least 20 people to get this group rate price. Please see the sign-up sheet on the narthex podium.

The trustees would like to thank everyone for their patient and understanding while the women's restroom was out of order.

Pastor Dawn has been out of the church office this week serving on jury duty. She will be back in the office on her regular days next week.
