THRIVENT As we pray for those who have been affected by Hurricane Florence, Thrivent – a membership organization of Christians – is mobilizing its financial resources and members to help those in need. Thrivent members and others who want to help with the recovery efforts are encouraged to visit Thrivent.com to learn more about our organization’s commitment to match individual personal donations and other ways in which people can help.
VOLUNTEERS Our worship service volunteers are always appreciated and we are always looking for more people to help during the services. If you are interested in helping out, please prayfully consider how you would like to help and fill out a volunteer sign-up sheet out in the narthex and put it on the desk in the office for Melissa. Thank you!
FRIENDS BAGS- The B.O.B. kids are going to make Friends Bags. We frequently see hitch hikers or homeless people along the roads and street that are seeking help with food or work. It’s hard to see them and not help. The Friends bags are small bags that contain small packages of sandwich crackers, cookies, goldfish, gum, wipes, hand warmers, also small bottles of hand sanitizers, shampoo, soap and lotion. You can keep these in your car and give them to someone in need when you see them. We are collecting prepackaged crackers, cookies, and other snacks for our bags so if you would like to support our project by purchasing any of these items please bring them to the church before Sept 26. This is our community service project for September.
CARDS FOR EDDY please bring your cards for Eddy in envelopes addressed to “Eddy” on the outside and only sign your first names inside. Please put cards in basket on back table as you exit sanctuary. Thank you!
