Good afternoon friends!

Today started off with some rain, but it seems to be clearing up a bit now, especially since we just had a visit from the church’s tiniest member (besides me of course!).

Congratulations to Pastor Marleen and Don on the birth of their baby girl, Katharina Scarlett!

We will all be wishing them many blessings as they start this new journey together.

On a less exciting note, today is the Newsletter deadline, so I you have an article for the newsletter, please be sure to get that turned in to Joanie, ASAP!

Tomorrow: Tuesday, August 20, there will be a Rebekah Circle meeting in the conference room at 10:30 AM. The Stewardship Committee will also be meeting in Pastor Jerry’s office at 4:00 PM. Finance Committee will be meeting in the Conference Room at 6:30 PM. The Christian Education Committee meeting that was previously scheduled for 7:00 PM has been moved to Wednesday, August 28th at 7:00.

Wednesday, August 21 we will be hosting our weekly free luncheon, Food from the Heart, from 11:30 Am – 1:00 PM. Stop in an grab a bite! There will also be a Personnel Committee meeting at 7:00 PM in the conference room.

Sunday, worship will be held at 8:15 AM and 10:00 AM. Many people are heading back to school or work after summer vacation, so this Sunday, we will have a “blessing of the Backpacks”, where people can receive a special blessing to begin the new year! Even if you haven’t been on vacation this summer…bring your bags, purses, backpacks and briefcases and receive a blessing that you can literally carry with you!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful week!

God’s Grace & “Squeaks”,
