Giving a day is easy: simply donate $1.00 or more in the glass jar on the narthex table and sticky-note your name on the calendar posted immediately to the right - one date per dollar. Let's fill every date!
It's back to school shopping time and while you're shopping for your kids please consider purchasing Elmer's glue sticks and Crayola markers (thin and thick tips) for our Sunday School supply closet. I know some of the generic brands may be cheaper, but the name brands work better and allow our children to have a more successful outcome with their art work. Thank you for your generosity.
Sunday School begins - September 13 is the first Sunday back to Sunday School at 9 am. We will also bless backpacks, briefcases and diaper bags for those going back to school at the 10:15 service.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study At 11:00 Am In The Church Library - The New Testament begins with the Gospel according to Matthew. So did our Wednesday Bible study as we began studying in depth specific books of the Bible. Join us as we continue with the book "Matthew for Everyone: Part Two" by Tom Wright (Bishop of Durham and noted New Testament scholar). Study will commence on Wednesday, September 16 at 11:00 am and runs about an hour. Books will be provided, you are encouraged to bring your own Bible as well. We have lots of fun including going over our homework of Bible Scavenger Hunts. While a number of members of this group have been meeting for several years, newcomers are always welcome. Prior Bible study experience is not a prerequisite. Leader: Fr. Don
