We are combining Family First and our Home Group ministry into a church-family-wide series beginning in September. We will use the inter-generational curriculum, “Lord, Teach Us to Pray” that uses the Lord’s Prayer as a framework for teaching about prayer. We will all be together for the teaching after which parents and children between the ages of 5 and 10 will move into their own discussion and related activity. Pastor Barry will lead the rest of the group in discussion and prayer. We will have childcare for children under the age of 5 if it’s needed. We will meet at Harvest on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of September, October and November at 6:00pm. If you and your children are attending, please let us know so we can have activity supplies prepared.
We are beginning a new Women’s study, “Women Helping Women” on Wednesday, October 1st. The group will meet on the first Wednesday of each month through March 2015. The goal of the study, authored by Paul David Tripp, is to help women be ambassadors for Christ as sinners living among sinners in a sinful world. We can have childcare available if we know there is need. There is no cost, but we ask you to register so we know how much material to prepare.
We’ll hold our last of our “Her Story for His Glory” ladies’ breakfast for 2014 here at Harvest on Saturday, October 25th. We’ll begin at 8:30 with another tasty breakfast and we’ll follow this with some worship and a testimony from Jean Wieder. If you haven’t make it to one of these breakfasts yet, we hope you’ll come and join us on the 25th. All women are welcome and we can have childcare available if you need it – just let us know when you sign up.
Come and hang out with your church family on Saturday, November 1st. We’ll begin with dessert at 6:30pm – please bring your best pie, cake, pudding or dessert to share. We’ll have plenty of time to visit with each other throughout the evening, but we’ll take some time to play “The Price is Right”, complete with prizes! And since we all will move our clocks back one hour before we go to bed that night, we don’t have to keep such a close eye on the clock during the evening! We hope you’ll come join us.
On Sunday, November 9th we plan to honor our servicemen and women, both past and present, by presenting a photo slide show on the narthex monitor. So if you have served or are serving our country in the military, please submit a picture of yourself in uniform to the church office by October 25th. Please see Terry Foulke if you have any questions.
