Recycle Those Greeting Cards!
Wait!!! Don’t throw them out! Heart & Hands Ministry will take those greeting cards right off your hands. Instead of discarding them, please cut off the front of the cards and drop them off in one of the blue polka-dotted Greeting Card Recycle Boxes. One is located on the front pew and the other is on the back table of the sanctuary. We have a new project we’re working on that you will soon reap the benefits of… stay tuned! ~ Heart & Hands Ministry
Would You Like to Lend a Hand?
The YC Food for the Needy is looking for a few FBC volunteers to be kitchen attendants during the Christmas for the Needy distribution on Dec. 11-13. A lunch will be brought in (to feed the volunteers only,) they only need people to be on hand to help maintain the kitchen, make coffee, and clean up. For more information call the church office or call Donna Johnston at 536-2683.
On June 23rd the congregation voted to accept a bid of $15,448 for the restoration of the steeple. The money to cover the cost of the project is to come from Memorial Funds, our church’s general fund and individual contributions. Since we have many plans for future improvements to our church it is very important that we do not deplete our church’s memorial funds and general fund. So please, let’s try to cover as much of this expense with individual contributions as possible. Please give what you can and designate it for the steeple restoration. You may send a check to the church office or place your contribution in the special Steeple Collection box located at the front of the church each Sunday now and through the month of September. Thank you for your continued generosity.

PATTI & TIM LONG American Baptist Missionaries in
Patti writes that Lupita came to the
Monte Horeb Grade Schoolin when she was six years old and was placed in kindergarten. Other schools would not accept her. Her speech was so distorted from a high palate that no one could understand her. She was considered a ‘burro’ at the other schools and even by her own grandmother, who was raising her. Fourth grade was the turning point for Lupita. The special attention she was given over the years at Monte Horeb finally reaped some real tangible rewards. She learned to read and enjoyed doing so, her math skills improved markedly, and her speech had progressed to the point where most could understand her. Not only did Lupita’s confidence and self-worth improve over the years through the special education program directed by Patti and the acceptance she felt by students and teachers alike, but her own grandmother came to a most important understanding. Lupita was not the ‘burro’ that her former teachers talked about and that she herself and had come to believe. She began to help with homework and volunteered daily at the school. The developing teamwork between grandmother, student, and teachers made a world of difference, one that we trust now will serve them well as Lupita moves on to other schools. Tijuana
