- Prepare your heart for worship by listening to the worship set.
- ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING… Please make a point to stay after worship on Sunday to take up important matters in the life of our church. Pastor Steve will be sharing about our vision for ministry and direction for the future. We’ll also seek the congregation’s approval of the proposed budget for the next fiscal year, as well as elect elders and deacons to new terms of service. Although only members can vote on the business, we encourage all regular attenders to join us! If you didn’t receive the letter, budget, bios and Bridges Church summary via email or postal mail this week, please email email@example.com or pick-up a copy from the welcome center on Sunday.
BRING YOUR FILLED FAMILY MISSION BACKPACKS INTO CHURCH BY WEDNESDAY… Bring all the supplies you have been collecting throughout summer in a new backpack by this Wednesday, August 16 at 3 PM so we can donate them to 5point7 church in Detroit. Your backpack should include 1 pack of no. 2 pencils, a pink eraser, a pencil sharpener, ballpoint pens, a box of crayons or markers, a pair of scissors, spiral bound or composition notebooks, colored pencils, and pocket folders. Check the office hours on the back of the bulletin for drop-off hours.
