Blessings of the Backpacks - September 12th

I praise you

It’s time for back-to-school and back-to-church and we are excited to welcome kids and families back in particular with a special “Blessing of the Backpacks” in worship on Sunday, September 12th. Kids of all ages are encouraged to bring their backpack (or tote bag or whatever!) to worship that day for a blessing—and to receive a special luggage tag as a reminder that they go to school, to daycare and everywhere else with God’s blessing and with ours. Don’t miss out!

And…we’re so happy to welcome our Sunday School students back, in person, immediately after the Blessing of the Backpacks that day. Except the first Sunday of the month, Sunday school will be held each week for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Students are usually excused from worship after a children’s message or the Passing of the Peace, and class will conclude at the same time as worship. Teachers and assistants will teach for a month at a time—if you are willing to volunteer, please contact Pastor Katie for more information.

Starting September 20th - New Bible Study

What My Grandmother's Taught Me

Are you ready to consider adding Bible study to your life of faith but can't commit to our weekly groups? Consider a monthly study instead! What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning From Women in Matthew's Genealogy of Jesus is a new study that will meet just once a month beginning in Setpember. Published by the Horizons/Presbyterian Women's organization, this is a wonderful study that is not just for women.
 
We will meet on the third Monday of each month (September-May) at 1:00 pm a the church, sharing leadership, study, refreshments and prayer. In order to participate you need to pre-order a book so we all start in the same place. Contact Nancy Siewert at (920) 609-2051 or dennis1829@att.net to reserve your spot.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study On Zoom

Bible Study_3

A New Family Opening the Doors of the Church is our next online Bible study, set to begin on Wednesday September 15th. This five-week series will feature scripture, conversation and prayer each week surrounding a 10-15 minute video clip which we will watch together on the Zoom platform.

The videos feature interviews with Rachel Held Evans, a brilliant educator and theologian who  tragically died very early in her ministry. She wrote, “The folks we are shutting out of the church today will be leading it tomorrow. The future is in the   margins.” There is no homework or preparation—just bring an open mind and a willing heart. If you need assistance in accessing the Zoom platform, please contact the church office before the first meeting.

Youth Group Starts

Coffee Fellowship Continues

Coffee Fellowship will continue through the end of October with some modifications. Beginning September 12th, coffee, water, lemonade and prepackaged snacks will be served in the vestibule. Fellowship will continue to take place outside. 

We will have a sign up sheet for two people to host each week, and we encourage everyone to consider volunteering. Snacks will be purchased by the church, and in case of inclement weather, Fellowship will be cancelled for that week.
