   The new air conditioning units for the sanctuary and offices have been installed and operating. We have enjoyed the summer comfort of the sanctuary because of this installation. This comfort will continue into the fall.

 To pay for this major improvement we have borrowed from our other funds. Like all borrowing, it needs to be paid back.

The Trustees have authorized a Capital Funds campaign to repay a major part of these funds.  This campaign will take place August 27 to September 17.

 You will be receiving a letter the week of September 11th. It will include a pledge card asking all of us to make a pledge for the next 3 years. It is critical that this pledge is over and above our regular giving. We cannot take money from our operational needs to meet this commitment.

 We will all bring our pledge cards to turn in on Sunday, September 17th.

 Begin now praying about at what level God wants you to participate in this important project.

.

Pastor Fred

Bible Study and Growth Opportunities

 A few months ago many of you filled in questionnaires concerning you wishes for Bible Study and Spiritual growth possibilities. I am pleased to announce the following opportunities will be available this fall and encourage you to participate in the one best for you.

       1. There will be a morning group meeting at the church at 10:00  a.m. on                            Wednesday mornings.The pastor will be leading this. We will begin on                            Wednesday, September 20. We will begin with a study of the book of Jonah. The            group will have input on studies that follow.

      2. There will be a group meeting on Wednesday evenings at the church. We will                 meet at 7:00, our usual time and like the morning group will begin with a study of           the Book of Jonah.

     3. There will be a third opportunity. Joe and Kristi Loutraris have agreed to host and            lead a group that will meet in their home. Some of you ask for this and I thank                God for their willingness to host and lead such a group. No study topic has yet                been chosen. This group will most likely meet on Tuesday evenings and will begin          around October 3.

 Let’s study and grow together and prepare ourselves for the future God has for us.

 ††  Did you miss somthing during the summer ††   


         

    On June 11th, we celebrated Children’s Day.   What a beautiful day it was.  All the children did a wonderful job at presenting the morning worship scripture, prayer concerns, the hymns and everything that made our worship time fulfilling.  We had the Sunday School present a few gifts to honor our teachers, helpers and graduates for the year.  Following we had a picnic outside on the side lawn.  We had approximately 70 people stay and enjoy hamburgers, chicken, hot dogs, chips and drinks.

~~~

 July 22nd was pasta night at the church, the meal was free we just asked for a love gift offering to help towards the air conditioning system that has been installed. Several people assisted Kerri Morey, with volunteering to help prepare food, serving, setting up, clean up, also several donated money towards the food.  Thank you to all who helped.  If you missed it not to worry I hear we are going to have another one.

 ~~~

We had 2 beach services this past summer at Nejecho Beach.  What a wonderful way to start your day with the air flowing through your hair and hearing sounds of summer while listening to the Lord’s word.  It was so tranquil and beautiful.

Our quarterly business went well on the 30 of July.  Well attended and several items were discussed along with the usual updates from the different boards.
