NEW PICTORIAL DIRECTORY!
Please sign up for your portrait sitting!
November 3, 4, 5 & 6th

You will be pleased to know that our church is now in the process of producing a new Pictorial Directory. This will be an attractive full-color membership directory with portraits of our church families. It will also contain a roster (names, addresses and phone numbers) of all our members whether they are pictured or not. We want your family’s portrait in the directory so please don’t fail to get on the schedule.

Family portraits taken for the directory will feature the Electronic Imaging System, so you will make only one visit to the church for photography and viewing your portraits. Each family photographed will receive a free 8×10 color portrait plus a free copy of the finished directory.

Sign up sheets are on the information tables. Sign up today!

UM Blessing Home for Children – Thailand

Mickey and Jerri Statham’s daughter and son-in-law, Allie and David Houle will be traveling to Thailand to visit the United Methodist Blessing Home for children. Allie asked what they could bring and was told that they have vitamins for the children but they don’t taste good and the children don’t like to take them so gummy vitamins would be a welcome gift.  They are leaving the last week in September so we have 3 Sundays to collect.  Allie and David have asked their church to donate and of course, we can help too.  They hope to take a whole suitcase full. You can read about the Blessing home at http://www.thailandmethodist.org/
