“Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:31-32)
Worship will be at 9:00 a.m. at UPC and 11:00 a.m. at Rankin. For the next few weeks, we will be doing a series on the Letter written to the people of Ephesus. The title of the series is “No Longer Strangers”. This week is “Making Peace.”
Sunday school will begin on September 12th at UPC. Adults will be at 8:00 a.m. and children at 9:00 a.m. we are looking forward to a wonderful year of learning.
Rankin will celebrate this month’s fifth Sunday with our offering for Heifer International. Offering envelopes are available on the tables in the narthex. Thank you in advance for your contributions.
As your gardens ripen, if you have more than you can eat remember you can bring the produce to the church. If you don’t plant a garden feel free to take what you can use and leave a donation to go the hunger fund. Thank you to all that participate and share their gifts of gardening.
We have sold 113 new hymnals out of our goal of 150. We are so close to making it happen. Thank you so much for all who have purchased so many. There is still time to buy some for you and your family. The cost is only $20. This new hymnal has over 800 songs and we would no longer need two hymnals in the pew. Thank you in advance for buying hymnals for your family. We will dedicate the hymnals in worship on September 12.
We will not be having the craft fair this year. However, we will still be having the drawing for the quilt. It is hanging in the fellowship hall. Session and Deacons have tickets for $1 or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing will be on October 1st.
