Good afternoon everyone! Today, Pastor Christopher continued his series, "Servanthood". Today's message was "Servanthood - The First Shall Be Last", based on Mark 10:35-45.
OTHER CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS
Church Roof Update
After receiving several bids, we have now secured a contractor to replace the roof on our church. The cost will be $24,500. Consistory has approved paying this out of our current account. However, if we find down the road we need to replenish our account, we will then move the money out of Book of Remembrance. The work will take less than one week to complete once it begins and should be done before the end of October. There will be NO disruption to our church activities during this time. If you have any further questions, please speak to anyone on the buildings and grounds committee.
We are collecting a special offering each Sunday of September. The proceeds will be sent through our denomination (Reformed Church in America) and their mission/relief fund, which will provide direct funds to people devastated by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. We are also collecting and sending items such as: Diapers, baby formula, powder, wipes, and more.
Please check the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside the upstairs kitchen for Sundays that remain open to host.
Ongoing Clothing Drive We continue to accept bagged or boxed donations of clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, linens, curtains and towels. All donations may be left outside Pastor Christopher's garage doors in the Ackerman Avenue parking lot anytime.
