UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS:

 




IT'S BACK!!  BIBLE STUDY RESUMES -
WEDNESDAY JULY 30th:
  Come to Bible Study! Come join Tara on Wednesdays from 11-12 AM in the Friendship Room as we study the Gospel of Matthew. We will study together the text, it's original context and how it relates to our lives today. Bring a friend, bring a lunch if you'd like and join us. We will meet every week together, though you may drop in at any time.

 FROM TARA:


Friends, sometimes it helps to be reminded of who we are and what we are here for as a church. "Church" is one of those concepts that we all seem to know what it means, so we never question it. But if we look closer, we find that our mission statement as a church is actually quite clear. In our denomination, we believe the church exists for:
  • The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind
  • The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God
  • The maintenance of divine worship
  • The preservation of the truth
  • The promotion of social righteousness
  • The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world
Join us in worship over the next few weeks as we look at each of these Great Ends of the Church. Let us, as a community of faith, gather together to worship and to gather together around our mission for the world.

Grace and Peace,
Tara




UPCOMING CONGREGATIONAL MEETING:

There will be a called congregational meeting on Sunday, August 17, 2014 immediately following worship. The purpose of this meeting is to vote on calling the Reverend Tara W. Bulger as our next installed pastor. This meeting will be a time for discussion about the future leadership of the church and all voting will be done confidentially. Please make every effort to attend this meeting. 

 

 The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers in Oconee County to take cancer patients for their treatments.  58% of hospitals reported that cancer patients miss treatment due to a lack of transportation.  If anyone is interested in doing this please notify Linda Kelly.


HELPING THE CHILDREN:

On Friday, August 22nd there will be a planned trip to Thornwell Children's Home in Clinton, SC that Linda Kelly is going to attend.  This will be an excellent opportunity to see this facility which we are taking up a donation for in November.  If anyone is interested in going please let me know!

 

 

 

PRESCHOOL NEWS:

Our Preschool needs working Ipads for the children - they are trying to stay technically in line with very little money in their budget.  If anyone has an ipad that they would like to donate it would be greatly appreciated.  Please contact Linda Kelly.
