Special Music A sign-up sheet has been placed on the narthex bulletin board for Special Music in worship services this summer. Gather your solo, duet, or group—vocal, instrumental, or drama and sign up soon. Start practicing. Enjoy the fellowship with each other. The dates are fast being filled.
Save the Date! The next church garage sale is in the planning stages. The work crew is looking at the last week of September. Start gathering your treasure, but don’t drop off until the crew is ready for it. More to come.
FISHING CONTEST! Win $50 and honor and glory! This contest is open to everyone and runs until October 14th. Just take a picture of your catch next to a tape measure or on a scale and submit the picture to the church. We will give it a percentage score of the Michigan state record for that type. All fish must be caught in 2016 in Michigan. The highest scoring fish wins! See poster for details.
What hymns do you like to sing? What are your favorite songs? Take the Song and Hymn survey. Forms are available on the table in the narthex. Let Pastor Karen know how you best connect with God through music. We have gotten 18 responses so far from our survey.
Message from your Mission Committee: If you’ve been to a store lately, you know the back-to-school-supplies are already on sale. That means it is time to start collecting for the North Kent Community Service Center. Watch for the collection box near the mission table in the Fellowship Hall. These will be delivered to the NKCS August 15th. Suggested items:
Loose leaf notebook paper Washable, dry erase Highlighters
3 ring binders and/or permanent markers
Pocket folders Pencil boxes/zippered pouches
Spiral note books Rulers
#2 pencils Erasers
Ink pens Safety scissors
Crayons Glue sticks
***Socks and underwear also go on sale at this time. Consider picking some up for the Operation Christmas Child boxes*** Thank you for your generosity.
What is God calling you to do? What should we as a congregation do next? Fill out the idea generating brainstorm slip in the bulletin and put it in the offering plate or turn it in to the office. No idea is too big, small or weird. We are collecting them all!
NKPC is inviting YOU to become a member! If you are interested, please talk to Pastor Karen and let her know your schedule and availability. We would love to welcome you officially to our church family!
