Sept 2015 Newsletter

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

I hope that you are ready for September, because it is packed full of all kinds of great activities! I had to push out the margins just to fit all of it on one page! Grab a magnifying glass and your favorite beverage…this may take longer than usual!

A new season of “Fierce Flourishing” for MOPS will be starting on Wednesday, September 9. They will be meeting from 10:00-11:30 a.m. Being a mom of littles is hard work, y’all! They need some flourishing! And they need some help so they can flourish! Here’s how you can help: at least 3 more adults to work with the littles (9:30 a.m.-Noon) and volunteers willing to provide snacks for said littles! This help is needed just one time a month on the 2nd Wednesday. Contact Meredith Lund at 765-592-4405 or mcooke86@sbcglobal.net to let her know how you can help.

On Saturday, September 12, Chris Blystone is taking a group of volunteers to Columbus, IN. Why?? Well, I’m glad you asked! There will be a food packing event for the “Feed My Starving Children” ministry. The work time slot is from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and he has space for 4 volunteers. Wave Chris down at church or e-mail him at chris.blystone@gmail.com to show your interest. If you’re wanting more info about the ministry, head over to http://youtu.be/ech5XOryipM to see a video that explains what they are all about.

Pastor Rick is going to start a 7-week class beginning Sunday, September 13 and finishing up Sunday, October 25. The class will meet during the regular Sunday School hour (9:30-10:25 a.m.). The class will focus on giving individuals the tools they need to mentor and disciple others in a one-to-one relationship. Remember how Pastor Garry has been quizzing us on our mission? Love God, love others, make disciples? This will help you do that very thing! Give Pastor Rick a shout out if you are interested…rick@fbcrockville.com!

Ladies, I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer, but it’s time to get back into your routine! A new Ladies Bible Study will be starting on September 14, with a small change, as we’ll be meeting on Mondays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The study, “Divine Design” by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Mary Kassian, will last for 9 weeks and cover the topic of biblical womanhood. Our fearless leader, the lovely Lori Jones, will again do her best to talk louder than the rest of us (we can be so chatty!), encourage us (with chocolate…we hope!), and challenge us (ugh!) to be constantly growing in our faith and our walk with Christ. Seriously, you won’t want to miss it! You can reach Lori at meximom62@gmail.com.

Last little bit of major info for the month is the Church Fellowship. The location for this shindig has yet to be determined…however!!!…it will be on Sunday, September 20, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. You know the drill…You come. Bring food. Talk to people. Simple! See you there!
