WE ARE COLLECTING a special offering today for UMCOR. There has been a request received from the conference for assistance in recently damaged areas in Louisiana and surrounding areas. Please give as generously as you can so that we can help those affected with significant life changing loss.

THE CHURCH OFFICE will be closed this Friday, September 16th.

Rally Day is next Sunday, September 18th – right here in the yard of our own church. We’ll worship outside at 11:00am, and by the time we sing the last hymn, grills will be fired up and ready for hamburgers or hot dogs. Please bring a dish to share. Your Worship Committee will be serving cold watermelon for dessert and will provide ice water, lemonade and coffee as well as eating utensils. See you there!

SEPTEMBER 25th, JOINT WORSHIP SERVICE AT 10:00AM: On Sunday, Sept. 25th, we will have a joint worship service with Cataumet UMC here at BOURNE UMC at 10:00am, prior to the arrival of the pumpkins at noon that day. Please mark your calendars!

WANTED: singers, instrumentalists, musicians to perform “Special Music” during the offering. Accomplished or not, pro or amateur, adult or child. Anyone who wishes to offer praise is welcome to perform. Accompanist available. Contact Kari Fietek.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO VIDEOTAPE WORSHIP! The broadcasting of our service is a valuable community outreach. We’re looking for folks that would pick up the camera from the station on Friday and film on Sunday. It would involve a short training session by the station personnel. If you are interested in this ministry, please call Bob Burt.
