Week of July 12

Dear Friends

As we move into the summer months let me remind us all of some ministry opportunities available to us all;

Five Loaves Food Pantry Service Opportunity: Jennifer Brown is organizing another service event at Brother Tim’s Food Pantry in Newport News. This time we will have the chance to help with the Tuesday night dinner they host each week. The date is July 28 and the suggested time is 4-7 pm. Please let Jennifer know if you are planning on participating in this fun and helpful way (brownie7506@yahoo.com).

‘Name Tags’ as ‘Hospitality’: Summer is the time when many people – individuals, couples, and families – are seeking for a ‘new Christian home’. A simple way of showing hospitality to those who are arriving as guests is to wear our ‘Name Tags’ (it saves the newcomer embarrassment when they forget your name in the middle of a conversation!). The Name Tags are located on the shelves just inside the hallway next to the Nursery.

Looking Ahead:

Bishop Steve Breedlove’s Visit: September 25-27. Bishop Steve will be with us the weekend we celebrate our Ten Year Anniversary as a church.

PEARUSA National Assembly takes place on November 5-7 near Charlotte NC. This promises to be a wonderful time for teaching, fellowship and networking. (peasusaassembly.org).

2016 Women’s Retreat has been set for April 22-24th at Camp Chanco. Mark your calendars now and plan on joining in on the fun.

Looking forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
