Announcements: September 1

It was great to see so many in church this morning! Here are some of the announcements:

  • During the next couple of weeks, please try to pick up school items (pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, etc.) to donate to “Larry’s Locker” at our school. This program was started by a former Superintendent to have needed school items on hand for students, since one has to travel so far to get supplies.
  • Starting Wednesday, September 11 at 8 AM, we will be meeting for “Moms in Touch” prayer time for our school and immediately. Then at 9 AM will be a Women’s Bible study “The Shelter of God’s Promises” by Sheila Walsh from
    Women of Faith. Contact Joyce Bozak if you have questions.
  • We have received an update from Manwarings, and have posted their September newsletter here.
  • We’ve added photos of the recent baptisms here and of the Baccalaureate service here.
  • Here are a few verses that I took away from this morning’s lesson on Satan: “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). “So obey God. Stand up to the devil, and he will run away from you” (James 4:7). And “I can do everything by the power of Christ, who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). So even though “the whole world is under the control of the evil one”, we have the power, through Christ, to make him run away from us!
