Sunday, September 7

Celebrate Rally Day 2014, our annual celebration of a new year in our Sunday School. Eligible students will move to new classes during Sunday School.

We will also hold a Blessing of the Backpacks during our 11:00 a.m. Worship Service. All students (of all ages) and teachers are invited to bring their backpacks, book bags, or work totes to the front of the sanctuary during the designated time for blessings for the new school year. During this time we will also bless the Reaching Out to School Students donations.

After the worship service, we will hold our Annual Church Picnic. At the picnic we will recognize our new members. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be prepared for all. If you would like to bring a salad or side dish to share during the meal, please do so. Everyone likes trying new and different dishes!

After the picnic, we will hold our Annual Dessert Auction. This is our annual fundraiser for our youth programs. Do you have a dessert your family and friends are fond of? Make it and bring it to our auction. Please make sure to somehow label the item(s) with your name, the name of your dessert, and any other special information you wish for the auctioneer to know.

We will also have a Bake Sale of small, individually packaged, donated items. These items will have a set price. Separate tables will be provided for the bake sale items and auction items. Please let the person collecting the dessert items know your name, the name of your dessert, and any other special information you wish for people to know about it.
