2016 July 17 Announcements

The next Haiti Awareness tour is scheduled for September, 24-28, 2016. This quick trip includes visiting the Plattners and other missionaries at Hospital Lumiere, the dairy program, Child Sponsorship and other AC HarvestCall projects in Haiti. If you are interested, contact Bro. Kurt Plattner. We also bid farewell to Bro. Kurt and Sis. Joan and Reggie, Toby, Hadley and Brenna as they journey back to their home in Haiti on Tuesday. We are thankful for the times we can be together.

Items are still needed for the Gateway Woods auction.  Please see Bro. Craig or Sis. Marla Wiegand if you would like to donate a new or antique item.

Note from Laura Carroll:

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to this congregation for your outpouring of love, prayers and support.  We know you went above and beyond to make sure everything was completed for the visitation.  We felt so at home and loved.  Our love and thanks, Laura, Clayton, Colton, Shelby and the Carroll and Wiegand families

A special thanks to all those of you who have gone the extra mile in helping complete the Fellowship Hall for the visitation and funeral.  The scripture “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;” comes to mind as we have observed this church family come alongside and support family members during challenging times of their lives in so many practical ways.  The care that you show through acts of service, notes of encouragement, and the army of prayer warriors that are faithfully committed to holding up to the Lord those who are in need of His touch, truly shows authentic Christianity that is ‘real’.  Thank you for showing His love in all that you do.

The Dedication Service and Open House for the new Fellowship Hall will be held next Sunday, July 24th in place of afternoon services.

Vacation Bible School will be August 1-5. There is a sign-up sheet at the information center for anyone that can bring a pie that week. Please see Sis. Missy Post if you have any questions.

The week of VBS we will again be collecting for the children's homes in Jamaica (New Hope & En Gedi House) where Sis. Erin Davis is involved. There will be boxes placed at each of the doors for baby lotion, shampoo, baby wipes, formula & diapers. We will also be taking monetary donations enabling HarvestCall to help with the operations of these homes. Please put checks in the boxes marked Jamaica Children's Homes. God bless you for your continued support of our mission in Jamaica.

We are very thankful to announce that Jacob Wiegand and Brock Wiegand are at peace with God and man and are ready for baptism. Please pray for them and encourage them during this most important time in their life.  If you have any words of encouragement or concerns, please contact them. We are so thankful that God is still patient and calling souls to repentance and conversion. Jacob is the son of Bro. Mike and Sis. Jenise and Brock is the son of Bro. Greg and Sis. Jenni.
