Spruce Up to Lift Up Capital Campaign

Don’t forget the Matching Fund opportunity that will help so much as the Church Trustees are trying to raise $12,000 to paint the church steeple and the outside of Fellowship Hall and replace carpeting in Fellowship Hall. The painting of the church has been completed and looks beautiful. This campaign will finish up September 11. Thank you!

Special Offering

Trudy will be cutting a check for $ 615 for Disaster/ flood relief to the Conference this week. It is my opinion that NYCC really came through on this cause. Thank you, so much . Jeanne

This and That

1) The next church council meeting will be on THURSDAY SEPT. 22 at 6:30 pm.

2 ) We have an offer of truck and trailer and also someone who is willing to help with any “construction” if necessary for a FUNDAY float. Funday is Sat. Sept.17th. It would be a really good time to put our church out there. There are several new young families in North Yarmouth now and what a “soft” way to say Hi, and here’s a little bit about us. We don’t have to prepare a Grand Prize float, but we do some things that we can be proud of……ie Chicken Pie events,( Rumor has it that Rev. Nancy is willing to wear a chicken costume ! * ) Pet Pantry, ( Tim offered to hold a Pet Pantry sign ). Our children’s special presentations are just that, really special .Where is the Donkey? There’s going to be a Blessing of the Animals later in the Fall and all are welcome to get in on this event. Anyway, if we do this we need a leader ,and you would not be expected to do it all the work.
