REMINDER!
This will be our last Sunday for our shared “Special Camp Snack” time between 10:30 and 10:55 at the awning outside the Contemporary Worship space.   Plan to join us, bring a friend for the camp theme snack time and let’s discover how sleep away camps, going to new places for fun & excitement, building new friendships that go strong and deep connect to Christian life and community! Sunday school classes are encouraged to plan to stop early so we have some great community time! (This week we’re ending on ice cream with toppings! Yum!)

Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, will offer their affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings at Cokes Chapel United Methodist Church on 8/6/2016.  Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount).  All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.  In order to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call 1-888-653-6441 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com/community-partners

Do you wish to participate in serving communion for 9 or 11 o’clock worship?  Pastor Lisa is asking all who want to take part in serving to attend this one day class at 10:10-10:45 in the Sanctuary.  This will also be the format to train for communion setup/clean up if you wish to be a communion steward.  Sign up for the class so that we have enough materials for each person by calling the church office or by emailing Barbara at office@cokeschapel.org.

UPCOMING SERMON SERIES
 
KindnessAWayForwardSeries
Do you want to transform the world? Let’s start with us! What the World Needs Now …. Kindness & Love may oftentimes seem just too hard to reach for, but kindness can provide real traction in today’s world. Without fail, the few simple acts of kindness often make for viral news = because so little can take on such gravity in our hearts. Kindness is the key to introducing the way of Christ. Love may seem to forward, to false, but living with kindness bridges the gap. Considerations on kindness: the source of it; the strength in it; the witness of it. Join us for three weeks of “Kindness – A Way Forward” beginning August 14th.
