Thank you, Denise, for capturing these moments at our Youth Sunday service.
Ready for MORE Fun & Games?
Last week’s Gathering was such a success that we’ve decided to do it again!
This Thursday (June 16) there will be indoor and outdoor games (if it rains the “outdoor” games will be in the Fellowship Hall) and then a time of visioning, planning and sharing ideas together (led by Pastor Sam).
OR, you may choose to keep on playing and enjoying fellowship with each other.
AND, we will again close with a prayer circle and maybe even sing a song.
OH, and did we mention ice cream?
Thursday, June 16
7:00 Indoor and Outdoor Games
7:30 Refreshments and Fellowship
7:35 Guided Discussion (visioning and sharing ideas) or more games!
8:00 Prayer Circle
What do “fun and games” and “Southern Province Synod update” have in common?
Well, they will both be part of this Thursday’s Gathering!
At 7:00 p.m. there will be outdoor games and refreshments out on the lawn near the Banquet Room portico and board games inside in the lobby. Then, at 7:30 p.m., you can choose to keep on playing OR go inside and hear an update on our recent Southern Province Synod (resolutions that were passed; election results; decisions that were made, etc.).
We will conclude the evening with an outdoor prayer circle, asking God’s blessing on our congregation and our Province.
Thursday, May 26th @ 7:00 p.m.
POP in this Thursday evening for our POP (Principles Of Prayer) Gathering.
We’ll see what Jesus has to say about prayer and we’ll talk about ways to strengthen our own prayer life and see what else POPS up.
There won’t be a POP Quiz, but there will be POP-corn and Soda POP!
So… POP on by!
Sunday, May 15 is Moravian Music Sunday.
You may request your favorite Moravian hymn or song to be included in the service. This can be a traditional chorale or newer songs by Moravians who are still living!
Please send your request to Pastor Sam (email@example.com) by this Sunday, May 8th. The first 5 requests will be included.
From Pastor Gray:
I am pleased to announce that our Trustees have officially established the Michael Crotts Memorial Technology Fund. $20,000 has been set aside for that purpose and we are challenging members of our congregation and friends of Michael Crotts to match that amount. Thanks to a very generous gift from Terri and Allen Queen and a loving donation from an anonymous friend who attended Michael’s funeral, we are more than halfway toward that goal, having received $11,300. Michael was always very concerned with the quality and durability of our sound system, and we believe that being able to provide the upgrades that he recommended is an appropriate way to honor his memory. Thank you for taking on this challenge! Donations can be sent to the church office and designated for the “Michael Crotts Memorial Technology Fund.”
Our annual Congregational Council Meeting will be held in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be in-person only (it will not be Live streamed). Masks will be required and there will be plenty of room for appropriate distancing for those who so desire. Reports from our many ministries will be received and elections for Board members and Synod delegates will take place at that time.
