2016 June 12 Announcements

There are sign-up sheets at the message center for VBS which will be held the week of August 1st thru the 5th.  We need teachers, craft help and snack help for each night. If you have any questions please see Bro. Luke Rocke.

After prayerful consideration and counseling with others, we've decided to suspend choir activities for the forseeable future. We want to thank everyone for your participation and hopefully in the future can renew the choir effort if there is more interest.

Just a reminder that we need three men every Sunday to run the dishwasher and carry tubs of dishes.  Men….Please consider volunteering every Sunday by signing up before morning church to help with dishes.  The sign-up sheet is at the message center.  Thank you.

In June our collection boxes are open for our Goodfield area relief projects.

Heartline and Hearthouse is in need of paper products.  They need  paper towels,  Kleenexes, and toilet paper.  For the next two weeks, starting this Wednesday, June 15th, tubs will be at the doors.  Thank you for your continued support.  Any questions, please contact sisters Audrey Rocke and Paula Hartman.

Note from Bro. Kurt & Sis. Joan Plattner:

"During the past week, there has been significant unrest near Hospital Lumiere in Bonne Fin, Haiti.   The unrest includes things such  as roadblocks & demonstrations and is specifically directed at the hospital administration.   At this point, it seems that the community is most upset about the hospital not supplying them electricity.   Kurt & Joan as well as the other missionaries serving at Hospital Lumiere would appreciate your prayers for a peaceful resolution to the unrest as well as prayers for the safety of the missionaries and hospital employees.  Kurt left Saturday to return to Haiti, so prayers for his travels would be appreciated.  We'd like to thank our church body for your ongoing prayer support.   We feel blessed to have such great support from our church family."

Bro. Alan Roth has asked to be relieved of his Trustee duties. We have asked Bro. Kris Swords to serve the rest of Bro. Alan’s term.
