003GREETINGS FROM THE PASTOR

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

On Sunday, August 21st, there will be a new kind of sermon time altogether.  It will be titled, “Your questions answered.”  Certainly after all these years of listening to sermons you have questions about the Bible, about God, about the interplay of religion and society, about your denomination or anything else.  This is your opportunity to ask.  Unlike our hymn service, you do not need to speak at the service or even sign your name. You can be anonymous.  Just write down the question and put it in the offering plate or basket in the office by August 15th.  The more specific the question the more likely that I will address it from the perspective you’re hoping for.  I’m looking forward to sharing this time with you.

 FUNERAL BOOKLET

Several weeks ago I preached about how doing some pre-planning for your death is an act of love for your family.  Your family will want to get the final arrangements just right, just the way you want them.  However, if there is nothing written down even in the midst of their disorientation and grief they will have a significant worry. They will be anxious figuring out what you would have preferred for the funeral, for the interment, for the disposition of your body.  We have updated our funeral booklet and you will find many ideas about what decisions you should make, suggestions for your funeral service and other helpful information.  You will find this booklet in the rack with the published sermons in the hall wall by the office entrance.  We can send one out to you and are glad to file it for you.

In Christ’s love, Kendrick

 

SAVE THE DATE . . . PLEASE JOIN US ON RALLY SUNDAY

Sunday School will resume on Rally Sunday and the Christian Education Committee will also host the Annual “Welcome Back” Picnic following Worship on September 11th.  Please plan to bring a salad, a side dish or a dessert to share.  Our “grill masters” will be cooking the burgers and hot dogs.  This is the perfect event to enjoy food and fellowship with people you haven’t seen all summer.
