AUGUST PRAYER FOCUS:
OUR COUNTRY AND ITS LEADERS
THAT WE WILL SEEK GOD
AND HIS WAYS.
We will have a Pot-Luck Dinner on Sunday, August 20th, to welcome Mark, Ann, and Emmett. The meat and bread will be provided. Please bring sides, desserts, and drinks. There is a sign-up sheet on the foyer bulletin board if you would like to help with set-up or clean-up. Your assistance is appreciated!
Welcome the Casella Family with an “Old Fashioned” Pounding. A list of items requested is on the foyer bulletin board. Instructions are posted also. The items will be given to them at the Pot-Luck Dinner.
HIGH SCHOOL – Friday Night Live – Friday, August 25th from 10:00 pm to Midnight. Bring your friends!
The CD’s are ready for the Fall Singing Class. If you would like a copy to get prepared for class, please see Byron Thompson.
Girls Inc. – We have been invited again to provide weekly Bible classes at Girls Inc. Please join this fun ministry. We need men or women who are willing to take a turn teaching every few weeks, volunteers to attend and support the teachers and folks to provide snacks. Classes are held Wednesday afternoons. Please let Jane Luethke know that you would like to help and pray for the teachers, girls and Girls Inc. Staff.
Ladies Bible Class will resume on Tuesday, September 12th at 9:30 am. We will complete our study of 2 Peter. We will start with 2 Peter 3:14, on our study guide question 21. If you need a study guide, please contact Beverly Hyche.
We have been hosting the Kid’s Closet on a less frequent and irregular schedule for the past year. After some discussion we have decided to start hosting Kid’s Closet every other month on the first Saturday of that month from 9am to 11am. These months are: October, December, February, April, June, and August.
We will be sending out postcards to the families who have attended the past two years to let them know about the new schedule. I will post a list of the needed items in the bulletin for those who would like to shop for Kid’s Closet.
We accept new socks and underwear in all sizes and new or gently used clothing and shoes in sizes for infants through teens. No adult clothing please.
Please contact me if you have any questions. As always, thank you for your time and donations to Kid’s Closet. Tacy Bonner
Life Groups will begin in September. There are sign-up sheets on the foyer bulletin board near the side door. Please look at those and sign up for a group. You might want to go to a group that you were not in last year in order to get to know more people. This would also be a good opportunity to invite your friends.
Dear Northeast Families – We want to start collecting donations for our Fall Festival games. During summer cleaning, you may want to get rid of gifts you received or items you don’t need. The following items can be used for prizes:
Happy Meal toys
Gently used jewelry, stuffed animals, or toys.
Anything you think a child might enjoy.
We may take monetary donations later and order a few small toys from Oriental Trading if needed. Also, we will give candy as prizes like we did last year. I will have a sign-up sheet in the fall. A collection box will be in the coat room. If you have any questions, please see Glenda Fannon. Thank you for your support!
Auditorium Angels – A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the office wing for anyone who can help with auditorium angels.
Anyone interested in getting their CDL and driving the church bus to events and activities, please see Bill Darnell or Mark Mokry.
Thank you to Forget Me Not Floral (5237 Hwy. 126, Blountville, TN 37617) for providing flowers each week in memory of Diep Vuong. The arrangements are always beautiful and very much appreciated.
