How can you help the hurricane victims?

There are at least 2 ways you can respond.

1. As a church, we can put together Cleaning Kit Buckets for United Methodist Committee on Relief. The detailed list of what UMCOR is looking for is in the Agape Cafe at the church. The Annual Conference will get the buckets there - we have until mid October to collect our items.

2. You can donate to UMCOR using the Advance Special #901440. Using that number will make sure your gift goes directly for the buckets for the clean-up and rebuilding process.

Women's bible study
This fall's Bible Study will be a Beth Moore study, A Women's Heart, which is taken primarily from the Old Testament book of Exodus. It takes you on a journey into why God would choose to live in a wilderness tabernacle made by human hands and explores the parallels between the physical tabernacle and the tabernacle of the human heart. This is an 11-week study which will begin on September 7th and 8th, and finish up before Thanksgiving. This class is offered on Thursday evenings (no nursery) or Friday mornings (nursery provided). Cost will be $22 for the workbook.

Prayer group desires to add more prayer power
We would like to invite you to join us, but you don't have to pray out loud! We meet at the church at 5:30p.m. On days when the Youth present Crossings we will start shortly after it concludes, so you can join us at 6p.m. Everyone is invited!

Our youth program is back up and running!

Looking back on what a great summer we had, our new youth director, Logan Bledsoe, is hoping that she will find that she has more youth than she can handle on her own. That being said, if you feel rightly called to join her on a one-time or a recurring basis with the youth at Youth Group on Sunday evenings at 6, she would love to meet with you to discuss further! You can contact her at lbledsoe0300@gmail.com OR reach her at (785) 224-4437.
