The menu is your choice of spaghetti w/red sauce or fettuccine w/white sauce, seasonal vegetable, salad bar, rolls, and dessert. Please make your reservation by noon on Tuesday.
- A special thanks of gratefulness for Tom Short and the whole kitchen crew who donate their time and energy to keep us well fed with delicious food and uplifting table conversations. Also a big thanks to Peggy Pool who is our weekly grocery shopper.
- BUT...in addition, we could USE YOUR HELP any Wednesday for food prep...serving...or clean up.
- So how about adding YOUR helpful hands every now and then?
Ladies' and Men's Night Out is on Thursday August 8 at 6:30 pm. The men will be at Cherokee Cattle Company at 6:30 (contact Ed Jackson if you plan to go.) The women will be at the Stockyard Burgers and Bones 4475 Roswell Road at the Avenue of East Cobb (contact Tricia Glidewell if you are coming).
Are you praying for our school children and their new school year? In addition, I would like you to pray about YOUR participation in our volunteer reading help program at Bells Ferry Elementary! Search your heart...can you make time in your schedule to volunteer ONE HOUR a week to make a real difference in a child's life? The school will give us our volunteer schedule in a couple of weeks and we will start in September.
MUST Ministries has issued an urgent plea for the following items:
- Tuna, canned chicken, canned vegetables and fruit, white rice, flavored rice, coffee, shampoo (regular and trial size), and grocery bags.
- If you like, you may bring your items Sunday and Tricia Glidewell will deliver them to MUST. Or you may take them yourself to the MUST donation center at 1280 Field Parkway. The drop off hours are Tuesday - Saturday 9:00 - 5:00 p.m.
It's SUMMER TIME...and one of my favorite things of summer is that our worship will include an old-fashioned Hymn Sing in July and August. So come Sunday ready to SING WITH ENTHUSIASM all your favorite hymns!
Join us for our new Christ Walk series called THE STORY on SUNDAY afternoons 3:00-4:30 pm or TUESDAY mornings 10:00-11:30 am. The Story is all about God's great love affair with humanity. And this story involves ME and YOU! But have you ever wondered how in the world YOUR story fits into GOD'S story? Join us and find out how!
We are STILL in need of paid Nursery Staff! Please see Shelia or Ruth Castellaw with potential candidates.
God's Blessings and my love!
