We are looking at partnering with Bowman Elementary again to provide adult mentors to students at Bowman. You could help with school work, help in the library, play at recess, there are a number of ways to help. If you are interested in working with students at Bowman let Mandy or Deryl know. There is a process to go through with an application and back ground check.

Volunteer in the church office during the week

Would you like to help in the church office during the week for an hour or so here and there? This would help when Mandy is out of the office. Mandy will be on vacation December 19-30, during that time we could use someone to print the bulletin, check phone messages and more if you had availability. See Mandy if you are interested.

Fill out the questionnaire about yourself, they are on the back table in the foyer. Then turn in your questionnaire next Sunday, Oct 2nd to Mandy or leave them in the box at the Back Table. You will be given your Secret Sister on Sunday Oct 9.

Live Debt-Free

New Women’s Bible Study starting this fall: Mama Bear Apologetics.

What is apologetics? It is the intellectual defense of the truth of the Christian religion. The word apologetics stems from the Greek word apologia, which means simply an answer given in reply. Think of this less as a debate and more like telling your friend about this buried chest you’ve found. You’re convinced the chest holds an infinitely invaluable treasure, but your friend has some questions. Enter apologetics. Put simply, it is the rational response against the objections people bring…

For some it is painful, because of family or loss. Maybe for all of us we can make some memories that will stick with us for a long time. Kelly and I have begun to think of ways to make this season delightful for us and for others. I want to…
