Let It Shine! Sunday, 8 August 2010

Welcome back to Deer Creek Charge! This week’s services will be phenomenal! We are going to be looking at what it means to “live by faith” as we use historical examples of Abraham and Sarah for a model. How can we too become part of the “Great Hall of Faith” found in Hebrews 11? Join us to find out this and more! We will also be concluding our lighthouse series…so please join us to see how the paintings turned out! (A few touch-ups may be coming in future weeks…).

There are quite a few things coming up in the next few weeks…so be sure to check out the announcements! We’d love to have you join us for any or all of our ministries! May God bless you on your journey! Stay strong in the faith…

Announcements:

NEXT SUNDAY Mt. Tabor will be hosting 3rd Sunday Refreshments! Please join us after worship for food, fun and fellowship. Bring a dish and/or yourself! See you there!

NEXT SUNDAY, after worship (during fellowship time), Mt. Tabor will be having a Homecoming Kick-off Meeting to plan for the annual event in September. Of primary concern is picking a date, checking with speaker(s), and compiling a list of people to invite. Everyone is welcome to be a part of the planning. Can’t make it but still want to be involved? Please let Bonnie know.

Choirs are taking a break for the month of August. If you (or someone you know) is interested in providing music during this time, please let us know. We would welcome your gifts! Dates open: Aug. 15.

NEXT SUNDAY, Deer Creek Women’s Circle will be hosting the annual Peach Festival at 6pm. A freewill offering will be taken to benefit UMCOR, a non-profit group through the UMC that helps people recover from disasters all over the world. Join us!

Deer Creek is collecting school supplies for children in need through Mason-Dixon Community Services. If you are interested in helping out, please see the list by the entrance for what to bring—DUE AUGUST 22. Location: Deer Creek.

We will have a “Blessing of the Backpacks” (and students, parents, teachers, bus drivers, “lunch ladies,” support staff, etc.) on Sunday, August 29th during the Children’s Message. Please bring your backpacks or other “tools of the trade” as we embark on a new and exciting school year!

S/PPRC will be meeting on Monday August 30th at 7pm to work on compensation packages, etc. for 2011 in preparation for charge conference. Location: TBD.

Deer Creek Church Council will be TENTATIVELY meeting on Monday, September 6th as a follow-up to the Charge meeting on August 30th. This is Labor Day weekend—please let us know if you are available.

Sunday, October 17, “After Worship”: Charge Conference. All members of the both churches are invited to attend. If you are the chair of a committee, we need you to be present, if at all possible. It will be led by Rev. Bruce Haskins, our Adventure Guide.  Note: Bonnie is assuming that the meeting will be held at Mt. Tabor since it is “after worship” but stay tuned for details as we get confirmation on this from our guide.
