No prayer and Bible study this week.
Elders’ Prayer Meeting
It has always been the practice of the pastors to pray for specific needs they are aware of for each member of the church, however, with the installation of Steve Posner as an elder and the institution of monthly elders’ meetings, we will be utilizing new methods to ensure that we are efficiently and sufficiently meeting members’ needs through prayer. Toward the beginning of each month, we will be sending out an email to those specific members we will be praying for that month. This email will inform the members that we will be praying for them and ask them to respond with any specific prayer requests they may have and how we may be able to serve them and their family. These requests will only be for the purpose of prayer by the elders and will not be published or shared in any other venue unless specifically requested. This will begin in August, so if you receive an email, please respond by the date stated in the email. If you do not receive an email in August, please know you will be receiving one in a subsequent month. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Bob, Tim, or Steve.

Trip to Ark Encounter and Creation Museum
Tom Keller is putting together details for a trip to Kentucky for 4 days and 3 nights within the week of October 14 - 20. Travel would be via the church bus. Based on room prices for the moment, plan on $150 per night per room ($450 total, that can be split if you have a roommate), $60 for park tickets for age 60 and over. Wheelchair, if needed, is $10 for manual, and $25 for electric. You also need to have money for meals. There is a nice buffet at the Ark Encounter. They may also stop in Gatlinburg and Nashville for a dinner theater. You have until September 1 to sign up, which will come quickly, so if you are at all interested, sign the sheet in the hall! He hopes to get enough together to get better group rates.
