June Prayer Focus:
Hospitality and service to others
(especially those who cannot return the favor)
Sympathy is extended to Beverly & Junior Landes and the Butler family upon the passing of Elna Butler on Thursday, June 7th. Funeral services were held on Saturday, June 16th at Oak Hill Funeral Home.
Shoe Drive! – We will be hosting our big back to school kids’ closet event on Saturday, August 4th. We are in need of shoes for the kids’ closet so we are going to be holding a shoe drive during the month of July. A bin will be placed in the welcome center for shoe donations. If each family could donate at least one pair of shoes to the kids closet in July, it would be a big help. Athletic shoes are preferred. We can use little boys’ sizes 9-13, boys’ sizes 1-4 and men’s sizes 5-9, little girls’ size 10 and big girls’ sizes 3-6. Thank you for all of your donations. (A special thank you to the person who made a large donation of blue jeans in the month of May.) If you are interested in knowing what other items are needed for the kids’ closet, please text Tacy Bonner and she will send you a list.
The VBS Decorators are looking for fishing equipment (poles, tackle boxes, nets, maybe a llittle fishing boat) to use for VBS, June 30th. If you are willing to loan (or help decorate) please let Beverly Hyche, Mandy Cline or Carla Coppinger know.
Jenna Harris recevied a gift at her shower that did not have the name of the giver enclosed. It was a lovely Vera Bradley blanket throw, a journal, a wooden spoon and a Bio Cleaner and microfiber cloth. Please let Tammy Darnell or Charlene Harris know if you brought this gift so we can make sure to thank you appropriately.
Youth Group Chill – June 19th from 1-4 pm. Location to be determined.
Worship at The Park – Come out and join us Sunday, July 1st at 5:15 p.m. for our annual worship, cookout and fellowsship time at Eastman Picnic Grounds, Shelter 28 (404 Bays Mountain Park Road) and bring a friend along too!
Burgers and hot dogs will be provided, and each family is asked to bring a side, desssert and drink to share.
Kids make sure to wear your water shoes for the creek and bring footballs, volley balls, etc. to plaly with in the fields.
Mark Your Calendar! – Dedicated Disciples Youth Day – July 21st at Central Church of Christ. Rising 6th graders and up. More information to come.
HELP NEEDED – There will be several college students and recently married couples coming to Kingsport for Jenna and Garrett’s wedding, and they have very limited resources. We would like to ease the financial burden for them to be able to help us celebrate, but our little house just can’t hold them all. If you would be willing to house 1 or 2 of these young people, it would be a blessing for them and also for you – they are a great bunch! All they need is a blow up mattress and a place to shower, no fancy accommodations are expected. The wedding is July 28, so the dates needed are Friday, July 27 and/or Saturday, July 28. If you can help us out, please call or text Charlene Harris at (423) 534-7843. Thanks so much!
If you can be an Auditorium Angel, please sign up on the bulletin board in the Office wing. This consists of replacing cards, pencils, and picking up stuff laying around.
You can now select Northeast Church of Christ as your current charity at Smile.Amazon.Com.
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.
