WANTED: Pumpkin Patch Team Captain for week of October 2-8. Job requires calling folks the day or night before they are signed up to work in the patch as a reminder to show up. You are NOT required to work any shifts not covered but we may ask you to call someone else to fill in as needed. If you have questions, please talk to Marsha Burt.

Our promises to God and God’s Church: In our membership vows and each time we welcome a new member, we say together prayerfully: “As members together with you in the body of Christ and in this congregation of the United Methodist Church, we renew our covenant faithfully to participate in the ministries of the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, and our service, that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.” (United Methodist Hymnal, p.38) Each Sunday from September 18 through October 16 we are remembering and renewing our commitment focusing on these five commitments. We are all invited and requested to join in prayer about each of these commitments.

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.
