I was told. I have to admit, I was told. I knew it would be big, but I’m still in shock at how many people staffed, donated, came, and purchased today at the UMW Rummage Sale. Well done, United Methodist Women! (And all I heard today was, if you think this is big, just wait until the Bazaar!)
The Rummage Sale kicked off a whirlwind of activities for August. Wednesday., Aug. 9, the children and youth and their families are invited to Kingsdale pool for an end of summer pool party. We’re providing food, so please let the office know if you plan to attend. (See Angie or Austin for more info!)
Saturday, Aug. 12, is our Hot Dog and Watermelon Bash! This is a community-wide back-to-school event at Tanyard Creek Pavilion. If you are planning to attend, please volunteer for a shift. Sign up sheets are in the Narthex and Becker Hall tomorrow, or call the office through the week. We also are still collecting school supplies to distribute on Saturday.
Then, on Sunday, Aug. 13, all children and education staff are invited to bring school/work bag to worship for a special blessing.
Midweek Manna will begin Wednesday, Aug. 23! We have something for everyone planned. Please see your August newsletter for more information and check out the display tables that will be up on Aug. 13.
And Coffee Chats are winding down. If you would like to attend a chat and have not been contacted yet, or were not given a make up date yet, please contact the office during the week to find a time that works for you! I am loving these hours with you as I learn more about our church and each other!
Whew! I love this time of year when we tend to all settle into a school year routine. I hope you’ll still make time for worship between the increase of activities. After all, we need the time in worship to fill our spiritual cups so we can go our and serve our neighbors. Join me tomorrow for Holy Communion at all services!
