September begins a new church year and with this new year we begin living into our new structure in earnest. The Church Council has had several meetings. They are preparing for the first Semi-Annual Business meeting. By the way the date has been changed to October 13th due to Allen and me being away on the 6th. The meeting will take place during the Sunday School hour. We will begin promptly at 9:30 AM. All members and regular attenders are encouraged to attend. Both groups are allowed to speak and vote.
The Ministry Leaders will meet on Wednesday, August 28 to work on a coordinated calendar for the new church year. The Theme for the year will be: “Love In Action.” Hopefully we will be planning events that help us show God’s love in concrete ways.
The Deacon’s will meet on Wednesday, September 4th at 6:30. They will elect officers and choose new Deacon Team Leaders. September 8th the Deacons will be recruiting team members to assist them with their work. Please find them and volunteer to help.
The new Sunday School year is also beginning. I hope that many of you will make a renewed commitment to study God’s word with a small group of people each Sunday. There are plenty of options for the adults. I hope you will find your place. We are also doing some regrouping of our children and youth classes, so I hope our children and youth will make an effort to attend and give the new classes a try.
