Midweek Messenger August 3, 2011

Dear Friends in Christ,

This is an official public service announcement and warning: the roads in Gibsonville will no longer be safe, because my 16 year old daughter now has her driver's license. Just thought I should put that out there.

Other announcements include:

Care and Share will meet on Thursday Aug. 11 at 7:00 p.m.

Several of our youth will be going to SPIRITUS on Oak Island on Saturday Aug. 13- Monday Aug. 15.

The United Methodist Men will meet Sunday Aug. 14 at 8:45 a.m.

The Hand bell Choir will begin rehearsals starting Wednesday, Aug. 17 at 6:00 pm.

We will have the Blessing of the Book Bags on Sunday morning Aug. 21.

On August 21, the afternoon schedule is:
4:00 PM - special games, crafts, and inflatables for children.
5:00 PM - Ice Cream will be served for all.
6:00 PM - Sunday night worship - special praise band has been invited and we will also sing some of our VBS songs.

There will be a church-wide pancake breakfast and Sunday School Kick off on Sunday August 28 at 9:45 a.m.

There will be a Blood Drive here on Monday Aug. 29 from 3:00 PM - 7:30 PM

All of these announcements and more will be in this Sunday's bulletin!

As you can see, the summer is almost over, and we are gearing up for the beginning of a new school year. The summer has just flown by too quickly!

If you were here in church on July 17, you may remember the great music and the inspiring message we had from Claude Little. You can listen to the music and the message for that Sunday by going to the church blog: . You can also find many other items of interest in the life of the church there. I encourage you to write something about an area of ministry you are involved in - send it to Edith or me and we will put it on the church blog.

I'll leave you with this blessing from the Apostle Paul:

May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. -- Romans 15:5-6
