In August we will be collecting for Apostolic Christian HarvestCall. It exists to enable the brotherhood to come together and proclaim Christ & serve others, in the US, Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica, Europe and other places as the Lord leads. Many hurting people throughout the world need our help to be lifted out of spiritual and material poverty. Although what was once two organizations —World Relief and Mission Committee — are now integrated into one, our needs did not decrease. In fact, mission opportunities are expanding as brethren hear and respond to the Lord’s call. Thank you for your love, prayers and generosity. They are critical to our mission.
HarvestCall projects will be on Tuesday from 9-noon at the Fellowship Hall. Babysitting will be provided. We will be filling school bags and tying comforters. Please join us!
We will be having our monthly topical Bible study this Wednesday evening.
Local Relief: On Thursday's, September 20 and 27 we plan to have work days at the AC home in Roanoke. We would like to start at 10am on the 20th with indoor painting. Yard workers on the 20th also. We also need a couple of handy men for some projects in the home. Please see Sis. Dawn Maloney if you can help.
Our next family hymn sing is planned for Sunday, September 23rd at Bro. Larry and Sis. Lori’s Lakehouse Cabin. We plan to have a wiener roast at 5:00 pm followed by a 6:15 pm singing. The special group that evening will be our Bible class. Food signups will be at the message center. Also please bring a lawn chair for the singing. Any questions please see Sis. Lori Wiegand.
The young group parent supper will be on Sunday, September 30th at the FH. Please RSVP to Sis. Mallory Bauman If you and your parents will be able to be there.

Thank you for prayerful consideration whether to move forward with our minister ballot. We receive overwhelming support for moving forward. We will plan to have a special service next Sunday afternoon and will be sending the ballots out on Monday the 17th.
