Rally Day FUN ~ Sunday, September 9, at 8:30 AM!

Come prepared for fun no matter your age! Games and activities (with prizes!) simple enough for the youngest and oldest that promote fun and working together and may have some surprising results! (But don’t worry, we’ll keep you in your comfort zone!) And of course, it just wouldn’t be Rally Day without Beach Ball Volleyball in the pews! Looking forward to seeing you there and kicking off the Sunday school year!

Operation Christmas Child 2018 Kickoff!

On Rally Day Sunday, September 9, we will have a display table in fellowship hall for Operation Christmas Child. We will be passing out empty boxes with instructions this year for people to take home and fill with toys and goodies. People can pick up boxes anytime during September and October to fill at home. Thank you to Joann Carlson for providing special boxes again this year!

Then, on November 11, we will have all our members bring their filled boxes to the church. We will have a celebration with cake as we send the boxes on their way to children around the world. We will take a group photo with all the boxes, say prayers for the children who will receive them, and load them up to be delivered.

We hope every member of the congregation will join in this endeavor to share the love of Christ with children in war torn countries who desperately need it. Plan on picking up an empty box (or several!!). Members will fill it with toys and goodies (instructions will come with it) and will also fill out an information sheet that will go with the box that shares your love of Christ with the child who will get it. – Diann Wandrey
