July 2016 Newsletter

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

Believe it or not, people, we are halfway through 2016! The days are just flying by! Crazy, crazy, crazy! Sit yourself down with a big ole glass of sweet tea and let me tell you all the things you can do with your church family this month!

First up…you need to know that the church office will be closed on Monday, July 4, because…y’all…hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon and sparklers! National holiday! It’s a thing! Whatever you need to ask Pastor Garry and Miss Sue…do that on Tuesday! OK?

Wednesday, July 6, come to Beechwood Park for some games and pool time. Games and snacks for our 252 kid and our Youth kids will start at 7:00pm and you can jump in the pool at 8:00 until 9:00’ish pm. There is no charge for the fun, unless you would like some additional snack items from the concession stand while swimming. Who’s invited, you ask? Well, 252 kids, Youth group kids, and their families and workers…that sounds like just about everyone to me! Check with Andy & Janine Sutton if you have any questions and they say you kids should bring a friend! Sounds like a good time!

Sunday, July 10 at 6:00pm, will be another Church-wide Pitch-In Fellowship. There will be no Bible study that evening…just some good food and good conversation! Look at it as an opportunity to relax before the craziness of the 4-H fair begins!

And that brings me to Sunday, July 24 at 7:00pm. There will be no Bible study that evening to give you the opportunity to go to the fairgrounds for Vesper Services. Such a nice blessing to be able to worship with our Christian neighbors within our county!

Sunday, July 31 at noon, there will be a 252 Kids Fall Planning Meeting. This meeting is for anyone who is willing to work or be a helper for the weekly 6:00pm Wednesday night 252 kids program.  252 will resume this fall on Wednesday, September 7. This meeting will be a pitch-in lunch immediately following Sunday morning service for those attending and also for their families…so no childcare needed (good thinking, Andy & Janine!) Those attending are asked to bring plenty of food to share. Andy & Janine will provide the drinks, tableware, and answers to any questions you may have…they’re so smart!

Last up, all the usual suspects…The Ladies’ Bible study will continue each Monday in July (except July 4) at 6:00pm. The Adult Bible study meets every Wednesday at 6:30pm. And not to be outdone, the Men’s Bible study will be meeting each Thursday night at 7:30pm. Our teens voted to continue Bible study through the summer and Chris & Molly Blystone were game enough to lead them! AWESOME! They meet at 6:00pm on Wednesdays, but on the 20th and the 27th of this month, they will not be meeting so Chris & Molly can have some vacation time with their littles.

That’s it! Put on some sunscreen and get back out there! I’ll see you next month!
