September 17, 2017:
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING: A congregational meeting will be held on Wednesday night, Sept. 27. A current status report of various ministries of the Grand Strand church will be presented in lieu of the adult Bible class in the Fellowship Center on that evening. Most ministries will be represented as well as reports given by our ministers, Jay and Blake. We’d love to see a full house. Questions concerning any of our ministries will be answered, if written down beforehand and given to any one of our elders by next Sunday, September 24.
LADIES BIBLE CLASS: A new study will begin at 10:00 a.m. this Tuesday, Sept. 19, studying The Epistles of John by David Shepherd.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT DINNERS: Meals are served from 6:00 – 6:45, at $5.00 per person or $15.00 for an immediate family of 3 or more. All are welcome, but you must sign up on the Sunday before in the member center to eat the following Wednesday.
ANNUAL BEACH PICNIC/FELLOWSHIP is THIS COMING SATURDAY, September 23 at Litchfield By The Sea. TODAY is the last day to sign up. Please check the lists on the table in the member center for any items or tasks that you could do that are not taken. Big BIll is catering again, so we don’t have to do much cooking. Just a few food items needed. We need those lists finished up by today, or Wednesday at the very latest. YOUR NAME MUST BE ON THE ATTENDEES LIST TO GET THRU THE GATE AT LITCHFIELD BY THE SEA. We have surveyed the beach and it looks pristine. All walkways to the sand are functional, so come and enjoy. Saturday’s weather is predicted to be partly cloudy and 80 degrees.
HOPE FOR HAITI’S CHILDREN: All names have been given out, but a few extras are always welcome, so if you want to do a box and did not get one, see Lynda Jones or Barb Duncan. Deadline for turning them in is October 1, but you may bring them to the building at any time. Be sure they are properly identified, with the child’s name and yours and don’t forget the $15 check.
