          Welcome to the house of the Lord! Many times we wonder why our faith does not make life easier. Often times we think of our Savior as a sort of insurance policy designed to keep us from bad things. Yet, our Lord reminds us that evil happens in this rebellious world. Faith is not designed to keep us safe from this evil, but to resist it because our Savior has overcome the ultimate evil. This day, we pray you will feel God’s presence and the warmth of Christian fellowship as you worship with us . . . and your faith will grow to trust our Savior in all parts of your life. Please see the minister or one of the elders if you have any questions about our congregation. 

 We invite everyone to share a time of fellowship after worship in the fellowship hall. Take a moment and enjoy some time with your church family.

            If you are visiting with us today, please fill out a visitor card and place it in the offering plate.

            We welcome Dr. Richard Boyce, Dean of Union Seminary in Charlotte, to lead us in worship today.

            The session will meet next Sunday after worship.

            Our new ministry, “Creating for a Cause,” will meet the first Tuesday of each month (following circle), beginning September 4, at 2:30. All knitters and crocheters (or anyone interested in learning how) will meet to make items for people in need: the homeless, pre-term babies, the elderly, and the struggling. There will also be evening meetings for those who work in the daytime, to be announced later. Please contact Nicole Grambo for more information.

            Please keep Noah Kuchta in your prayers as he goes on to his next stage of basic training.

            Make sure you have a 2-Cents-A-Meal jar! Every time you sit down to eat, drop two cents into the jar and make a difference. Our youth are sponsoring this program to show how the Lord can turn just a little into big blessings.

            Remember The River ministry in Johnson City by dropping your travel-sized shampoo and soap in the collection basket outside the office.

 

 Mike Gunter is the head usher for August

 You can recycle the bulletins by placing them

in the “Recycle Basket” in the narthex as you leave worship.

 

            There is no attendant present to care for children during worship and other events. The nursery will be available for use by parents should a child become restless during worship. We have “busy bags” hanging in the narthex for children to take into the sanctuary. We encourage families with young children to begin using these bags.

            We ask that a parent accompany his/her child should the need arise to leave the sanctuary during worship. Safety concerns and insurance regulations require that children not be unattended on church property.
