August 2015 Newsletter

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

O.K., technically summer still has another month and a half to go, but families with kids…your summer is OVER! School is starting in the next couple of weeks! It’s crazy! If your kids are complaining, let them know two teens started their school year and already have one week under their belts. Yes, please pray for my children…they have a mean mommy! Let’s gear up for August…

Sunday, August 2, is our usual busy business meeting day. There is a Council meeting at 8:30 a.m. and the Business meeting will be right after the morning worship service. We will be voting to affirm new members and the rest is just standard operating procedure (SOP), but we’d love to see you there! It’s your duty as a member, ya know!

The Alaskan Mission Team is already at Kodiak Island! Woo Hoo! They arrived on July 28, and by “they” I mean Amy and Lexi South and Doug and Regina Overpeck. The South family will be returning August 8 and the Overpeck’s on August 10. Please be praying for them as they minister to the campers and encourage the other staff members. Thanks, guys, for representing FBC Rockville!

Wednesday, August 5, and Wednesday, August 20, are scheduled MOPS play dates. Check with the women who know all things (about MOPS, that is!), Meredith Lund (765-592-4405) and Lainey McCrory (765-505-2610), for activity, place and exact time.

Deacons, this is a special line just for you! Meeting: Sun. August 9, 4:00 p.m. ‘Nuff said.

On Sunday, August 16, at 5:00 p.m., everyone should cook some yummy food and grab some lawn chairs. Pack all that up, brush off your very best conversational skills and head over to Rich & Kathy Keller’s house! Yep, it’s time for a Church-wide pitch-in fellowship. Festivities should wind down by 8:00 p.m. so moms and dads can get their young whippersnappers hosed off and in bed at a reasonable hour…it is a school night! There will be no 252 or other Bible studies that evening.

Last thoughts…While you are stocking up for the new school year, or at least while they are on sale, pick up some school supplies to put in your Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. This popular church-wide mission project starts in a couple months, so get ready folks! If you’re not familiar with OCC shoeboxes, do a Google search for Operation Christmas Child, and get all the details!

Speaking of missions, FBC just received a ‘Top Giving Church’ certificate from NAMB for our 2014 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering of $1931.00! We appreciate your giving heart!!

We really do have so much we can give! Now go be AWESOME!
