Join us next Sunday, September 29 for Laity Sunday, when the lay-people of the church lead us in worship. Keith Harrington will deliver the message and there will be children and youth participating in the service. Come and show your support.
Suggestions for Elder Candidates– If you have a suggestion for a member of our congregation to serve as an elder for the class of 2020, please submit that name to the Elder Nominations box you will find outside the office on the Gathering Table. Service as an elder of our church is a significant commitment and as such an important part of our work to serve God. Thank you very much for any suggestions you may have for the nominating committee for the elder class of 2020. Gray Amick and Stephanie Kurtts, Co-chairs of the Nominating Committee
On October 6 we will come together to worship as one body again for World Communion Sunday. There will be only one service at 10:00 a.m. World Communion Sunday is celebrated around the world on the same day.
Do you speak a foreign language? Would you be willing to share your gift as part of the combined worship service October 6 at 10 a.m. on World Communion Sunday? The Worship Committee would like to have the Call to Worship and Benediction spoken in the language of other countries around the world. Please contact Lisa Whisenant at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Thanks!
