BBQ / Sweet Shop 
Weekend Coming Soon!

The big weekend is October 6 & 7 and LOTS of help is needed!

Please plan to provide baked goods, or work at the Sweet Shop, or both if you can!  

And the Men will need help beginning about Wednesday of that week with the hams, Brunswick stew, tent set-up, etc.

Please consider where you can help, then check the boxes on the back of the Connect Cards in your Sunday bulletins. Thank you!


9:30 Usher Needed ASAP!

We are so sad to see Ted & Lisa Klaren move away, and while we'll miss them for MANY reasons, in particular the 9:30 service will miss Ted as an usher!

We appreciate Ted's years of service as co-usher with Johnny Carroll!

This is not a difficult job, it just requires the dedication of someone to be at the 9:30 service a few minutes early, MOST Sundays.  Main tasks include helping distribute bulletins, guiding visitors, collecting the offering, taking a head count, and ushering during communion.  A complete job description is available in the church office.

Johnny Carroll will be there too, and is happy to give guidance to a new volunteer!

Please contact the church office or Johnny Carroll if you can help with this need.
