IN THE MOOD TICKETS – The last day for selling “In the Mood” tickets will be September 15th so think about getting your tickets soon.  All tickets should be paid for by that time also.  Besides wonderful music, good food and drink we also have a Silent Auction with numerous items for sale.  You will be pleasantly surprised by the items which have been donated to help this worthy cause.  We will be able to accept cash, check or credit cards that evening for the Silent Auction items.

CONGREGATIONAL CAFÉ – is on Sunday, August 25, at 11:30 in fellowship hall. The Ad Hoc Committee to Review the bylaws will present their reorganization plan to the congregation. The Council has approved the changes, and now it is time for the congregation to provide comments.  The Committee will then proceed to prepare bylaws revisions for your consideration in the fall. You will receive a copy of the reorganization plan prior to that meeting. Please take time to read it and note questions you may have.

LARKSFIELD DISCUSSION GROUP meets on August 28, at 10:00, in the club room.

YOGA meets every Tuesday at 4:00, Thursday at 6:00, and Friday, at 10:00, in
fellowship hall. The cost for the Tuesday and Thursday class is $5 because it is
instructor led.


INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING AT GAMMON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL? –  If so, please contact Cyndi Richter at or call 461-4148, or stop by the table in Fellowship Hall after the worship service.  She will have information on a variety of ways you can help at Gammon Elementary and will answer your questions.

FELLOWSHIP DINNERS – It is time to sign up for our Fellowship dinners which will be held in October & November.  This is a wonderful time to connect with old and new members by enjoying dinner at a member’s home.  Usually there are 6 to 10 in attendance at these dinners.  Sign-up starts Sunday, August 11th, and will continue until the middle of September.  Hosts and hostesses are always needed, so please indicate on the sheet if you can host.


When:  Sunday, September 8, 2019 right after worship

Where:  Fellowship Hall

Why:  We want to welcome the choir back after the summer hiatus, and we want to introduce Ryan Beeken, our new choir director to the congregation.

What should I bring?  Please bring a salad, or vegetable that will serve 8-10 people.  Fried chicken, dessert and beverages will be provided.  (Let’s take it easy on the baked beans.  Just a gentle suggestion!)

Please bring your dish “ready to go”.  There is no room in the kitchen for assembling food or cooking your dish.  Thank you for understanding this request.
