Bereavement

We express our deepest condolences to the Wilson family at the passing of our member, Ruth Wilson. The family expresses its thanks to you for your expressions of sympathy.

 

Hurricane Harvey Support

Thanks to your generosity we collected $565.00 for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. With your donations, we helped a person living in Houston and who is connected to our church. She lost many items in her apartment as a result of the flood waters from Hurricane Harvey.

 

Guest Minister

Today, we again gladly welcome Elder Tom Kelley who will bring today’s sermon.

 

Business Meeting

Our next quarterly business meeting is next Sunday, September 24, 2017 immediately following Worship Service. All members are encouraged to attend.

PCC is scheduled to serve the community meal on Wednesday, October 25. Our commitment is for the opening prayer, money ($300.00), trustees will handle this, volunteers to make desserts, 8 – 10 volunteer servers, and advertisement of the event within our church family. The community meal is open to anyone who might need it for any reason. We should arrive at the church at about 5 PM for serving preparation.

Box on Ushers’ Table for Invitations

As you continue to invite people to church, please use one of the forms on the ushers’ table, include the name of your invitee, and place the form in the box. Also, please keep in mind we are extending our invitations to people who don’t attend church. Also, we will keep your invitees lifted up in prayer.

 

 

 

PUSHPAY:

As we continue to unfold this new way of giving and staying connected with our church we thank you for responding to our request to use PUSHPAY. You are helping us to implement this new way for you and other members and friends/ to stay connected to our church even when they are out of the state or absent from worship.

 

Also, you are now able to use the church App, People’s Community Church (PCC) that is part of PUSHPAY. You can now access my written sermons on this APP. We are presently working to make the sermons audible on your smart phone.

 

Additionally, you can now submit prayer requests using the PCC App. Your prayer requests are confidential, come directly to the church office, and are not accessible from the website. So please start using this new App as an additional way to share your prayer requests.

 

Further, you can access an updated calendar of events and activities happening here at the church. Of course, there are other features of interest to you and others on the church’s new App. I hope you will use PUSHPAY so you can see the positive benefits of this new tool.

 

As you know, we have been informing you about Pushpay for the last 90 days. Our plan is to create a user-friendly way so members and friends can stay connected with the church. Toward that end, assuming you have a smart phone, I request you use it to send the church $1.00 or a little more (This is only a test and to make sure you know how Pushpay works). For your convenience, the steps to follow with your smart phone are listed below. Will you use PUSHPAY now? In addition, I have sent this message to you and others using e-mail addresses of members and friends. I am thanking you in advance for helping us implement this new way of connecting with our members. Should you have questions, please contact any trustee member.

Requesting Prayers and Using Prayer Cards

Please remember when you make a prayer request, to obtain a prayer card from an usher or from the rear of the pew chair. We need you to complete all sections of the prayer card. It is important that you estimate the time period you are requesting the church family to pray for your request. If your estimate of time changes, you are encouraged to update your request by completing another prayer card and giving it to an usher. With your help we will be able to better manage the number of prayer requests at any given time and the space requirements in the pastor’s letter. Thanking you anticipatively!

 

Visitors:

If you are visiting with us today, I warmly and gladly welcome you. Thank you for choosing to worship with us. Please take a minute and fill out the visitor’s card and return it to one of our ushers or deposit it in the offering tray. We welcome you to come again to worship with us or to attend some of our program offerings to the community. We are indeed glad to have you, and if we can do anything to make your visit more spiritual or meaningful, please inform one of our members or me.
