RALLY DAY – SEPTEMBER 10
Now that summer vacation days are completed, schools are back in session, our choir is rested and ready, and the privilege and gift from God to worship, serve, evangelize, and fellowship together in this new 2017-2018 year is before us, next Sunday we will be celebrating and inviting friends and neighbors to join us with a RALLY DAY! We proclaim top and centered each week in the worship bulletin that we are “A family of Christ, welcoming all, worshiping God, growing in the Spirit and joyously serving others.” On RALLY DAY we will be called to renew our awareness of and commitment to our Lord and one another. We will be reminded of who we are and Whose we are. As the Apostle Paul taught in 1 Cor 12, we are connected to one another in relationships, gifting and mission: 12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ ….4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. 7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. We will have ministry leaders ready after the service on the patio and around the Faith Family Center to share more with you about the many ways the Lord is known, served and glorified, inviting you to prayerfully consider and sense the nudge of the Spirit toward your vital participation this next year. Our ministries are many and diverse, but are incomplete without the full participation of all of our gifted and loved members! These ministry areas include college outreach, congregational life, faith development & nurture, finance, memorial, mission, nominating, personnel, property, facilities, information technology, stewardship, worship & arts, communion, community service, flowers, home worship, labor of love, memorial service, prayer chain, prayer quilt, prison, and visitation.

We are sponsoring a family this Christmas through PUM(Presbyterian Urban Ministries)! The family consists of a mom and dad and three boys (a set of twins and a three-year old). They just got their apartment and the mom has a job. The dad stays home to look after their special-needs son.
If you are not sure of what to give, please see Michelle Crownhart after worship on Sundays for a list of sizes and likes. If you would rather give cash, we do accept cash donations.
PUM is also collecting items to keep people warm this winter. We appreciate donations of blankets, diapers, jackets and warm undies. Food donation is also welcome!
Thank you for any help you can give.
