Sunday, September 28th is Back to Church Sunday.  Come back to church if you haven't been in a while!  Invite your friends, family, neighbors.  We will have a special service in worship time (9:30), Sunday School (10:45) and then a carnival at 4:00, a cook out at 5:00 and a special live concert at 6:30 by The Sweet Potatoes direct from California (Rick and Laura Hall and Kelly Macleod) - you don't want to miss it!

New month for Annual Bazaar - mark your calendars for Saturday, October 11th for the Annual Bazaar (there will be no luncheon this year).  More details will follow in the coming months.

Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is now 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  This week's meal is Goulash (noodles) with Hamburger, Garden Salad with Ranch Dressing, Garlic Bread, Fruit Combo and a variety of cakes.

Practice for Kids Choir will resume on Monday, September 8 from 3:30 to 4:15 in the 3rd floor Kids Choir Room.  If you have children Pre-K through 5th grade who want to sing - bring them on up during those hours.  They will be preparing a Christmas musical to share with the whole church.  If you want more information, call the church office.

We have a large selection of greeting cards for sale in the church office. Each box is just $3.50 and most boxes contain 12 cards and envelopes.

A security system has been installed in the church.  It involves cameras and a button to be pushed at the East and West entrances.  Persons wishing to gain entrance to the church during office hours will be admitted through a buzzer system.  Push the button, step back a foot so the camera can see you, wait for a response and then the door will be unlocked for you.
