Board of Missions Backpack Spotlight Items:
Keep in mind that we do continue to help feed our school-age kids over the summer months. These kids “get to” eat during the school year because of the “free/reduced priced” school lunches that they qualify for, so when school is not in session, then what? That is why the Bd of Missions has undertaken this project. It takes a community to raise a child. Thank you for what you can, and do, contribute.
The September item to benefit Milly’s Backpack Program: Canned Tuna & Chicken

The Advantages of Church Choir Membership
(back by popular demand)
~ You have excellent seats and are assured of a reserved seat for
Christmas and Easter.
~ From your advantageous seat you can gawk at, smile at, ignore and
otherwise enjoy the rest of the people in the congregation.
~ The pastor is always looking the other way (or is he?)
~ You’re in a wonderful spot to see new members.
~ The cost for all these benefits? Just one practice a week.
~ Oh yes, one more reason you’ll want to be in the choir… you are a
leader in the worship experience.
Calling all singers – Please consider joining the choir!
