A: Seek God’s kingdom first
C: for God knows all that we need

*Rejoice in God’s presence as we gather to worship today. A special welcome to all guests visiting with us. Your presence is a blessing.

*There will be a special congregational meeting immediately after worship on September 9th to consider a motion for the purchase of a new phone system for the church. Please make every effort to be here so we have a quorum for action. More information in the bulletin.

* Oh, no! We missed getting it in the bulletin. We will bless backpacks during worship next Sunday, September 2nd. Please help us get the word out to children and families.

*We’re nearing our last call for pictures for a new photo directory. IF you need a new picture, Melissa Butsch has brought her camera and will take one today. For more details about the photo directory, read the article in today bulletin. And thank you, Melissa.

*We are in need of people who will take a turn covering the nursery beginning in September. If we say we want young families in our church, a nursery during worship is a gift we must provide. Please give this ministry very serious consideration. You can sign up on the attendance form. The more who sign up, the fewer times each must serve over the year.

*The September newsletter is available in the narthex. Pick up your copy today. There’s a lot going on!

*Next weekend we return to one worship service on Sunday at 9:30 am but we will still be observing our more casual summer format. Sunday School will begin until September 23rd.

*Now we have a few worship note.
First, we thank our Praise Team for leading us in worship today.
Second, the Opening and Sending Hymns printed in your bulletin are incorrect.
Third, the CORRECT Opening and Sending Hymns are printed on a yellow insert in your bulletin. (Hold up a copy) Please have that out to use during worship. Thank you.
