Feed the Hungry: Annual "bean bagging" and hot dog event is July 25
Supporting the Des Moines Area Food Bank
2012 Bean Bagging will be Wednesday, July 25 at the Grande's. Hotdogs, buns and condiments are provided as well as water and lemonade. Please bring a side, salad or dessert for the feast after the bagging. Also bring lots of energy to bag those beans! Bagging will start @ 6:00 PM, with the meal to follow once the beans are bagged. Parking is limited, so please car pool if you can. This is a great way for SPCers to get together for some summer fun, and, more importantly, feed the hungry as taught in the Scriptures. "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:17-18
Fellowship Coffee Hour - We have some folks signed up for the next few weeks. However, the last part of summer and fall are blank. Directions are being published and will be made available. Thanks – Kurt Hollingsworth – Connections Commission
Let’s wear those nametags!!
We encourage you all to wear your nametag each week. Doing so is an easy and friendly aid for visitors, new members and those of us afflicted with “senior moments.”
If you don’t have a nametag, have lost yours, or know of someone new who needs one, Jan Matsumoto will make a new one for you. There are clip-on badges available if you don’t like the pin-on kind.
The other useful tool for connecting faces and names is the “picture board” in the coffee room. Our aim is to have a photo of everyone, members and regular attendees. If your picture isn’t on the board or is out of date let Jan Matsumoto know, and a time can be scheduled for taking your picture.
Kory Hollingsworth has been working with the Regional Animal Services of King County to complete his Boy Scout Eagle Project. While he was at the animal shelter on Tuesday, he learned that they are in need of used bath towels. If you have any old bath towels that you are ready to retire from your collection, please bring them to church on Sunday and Kory will make sure they get taken to the animal shelter. The dogs and cats will love you!
SOUND TECH OPPORTUNITY - We are looking for someone to help create and enhance an atmosphere of worship by serving as a Sound Tech Sunday mornings and/or for special services. We will provide training needed. Please prayerfully consider this ministry and talk to Edina Blackstock or Paula Hawkins if interested.”
New and improved BUSY BAGS for the summer. For the months of July and August, we will still be having a Children’s Message for the children, but instead of being dismissed to Sunday School, they will return to their seats for the remainder of service. HOWEVER, we have new Busy Bags for the children to engage in. They will be UPDATED WEEKLY, so each week they can have new activities and stories to follow along with.
