This Week in First Church:
– Today, following the service – Choir practice
– Sunday, 7 Oct. – Communion Sunday
Reading, Anyone? If you would like to take a turn reading the scripture readings on one of the Sundays in September or October, please sign up on the blue sheet on the music stand at the south entrance. Please sign up for one Sunday only, so that as many others as possible also can take a turn.
Meal-in-a-Bowl – Our monthly Meal-in-a-Bowl Suppers will be held on the third Wednesday of the month this year, rather than the fourth. The first one will be held on the 17th of October.
Bible Study – The study book that will be used is called Heaven – Finding Our True Home. It will cost approximately $12.00. If you are interested, please add your name to the sign-up sheet at the back of the sanctuary.
Heating System Project – As reported last week, The Lending Fund of the national church has approved our application for a loan of $6,000 for the heating system in the church basement. This means that the financing is now in place, and the project can go ahead. Ingram’s Plumbing and Heating has been notified, and will begin the work as soon as they are ready. Donations toward the project totaled $2,585 as of the end of July! Many thanks to all who have contributed so far!
