The Wired Word
Christians respond to what’s in the news – a discussion group for adults led by Sandra Golonka. Are you often in a quandary about how people of faith should respond to what’s going on in the world around us? Join us every Sunday morning beginning on October 1 from 8:30 to 9:15 am in the fellowship hall for a lively discussion of something from the news the past week and how Christians we might think about it and respond to it.

We have openings on all of our committees at this time. Please think it over and let us know if you are interested in a position on one of our committees. If you have any questions, we would be glad to answer them for you. Thank you, Pat Field, Pam Ames and Butch Goff.

Save the Date! Chicken Pie Supper on Friday, Oct. 27
To all you wonderful, enthusiastic volunteers out there,
Please mark your calendars right now and block out these dates:
Oct. 23, Monday, 1-2 pm: Make dough balls
Oct. 24, Tuesday, 1-3 pm: Pick chicken
Oct. 26, Thursday, 9-11 am: Roll pie bottoms
Oct. 27 Friday, 10:30-noon and 12:30-2:30 pm: Roll pie tops & assemble Chicken Pies!
If working in the kitchen isn’t your thing, we also need a few people who can do tasks of shorter duration; for example, set up the tables, cut up squash, peel and slice apples, mix topping and assemble apple crisp, etc.
This event is a significant fund-raiser for our church, and it has earned a strong following, serving many people from surrounding towns. When we put on a successful chicken pie supper, we can give back even more to the community at large…it’s a win-win event!
Please be thinking about how you can help; we have many types of volunteer activities, i.e. something for everyone. To express an interest in helping make this a big success, call Lyn in the office at 829-3644, or email Pam at email@example.com.
Thank you in advance, Mark Heath and Pam Ames
