Movers Needed ~ Love INC needs men who are willing to be a call list to help move furniture on occasion. Would you be willing to be on an “on call” list for those times when Love INC is asked to pick up furniture for the Heart-to-Heart Resale Store? Picking up furniture doesn’t happen often, but when it does we sure need 2-4 guys who can go get it. If you happen to have a pick-up truck, that’s a bonus. If that truck has a trailer hitch, even better, but what we really want is you! Please call Tammy at 751.8642 or tammyleutz@gmail.com if you are interested to have your name on the movers call list.

Concert ~ The New Legacy Project, formerly the Blackwood Legacy will be in concert at the Hamilton Reformed Church on Friday, August 24 at 7 pm. This group combines the best of country gospel, traditional and newer southern gospel, with today’s popular music while staying true to the Gospel Message. The Nashville-based group is known for their flawless harmonies, comedy, and homespun humor. Join for a memorable time of live music, fellowship and fun! Admission is free and a love offering will be received. Listen for their new radio single “God of the Empty Grave” and visit them on Facebook or at www.New LegacyProject.com.

Ministry ~ Has God gifted you with a heart for people that are hurting? No special talents or education just a passion to serve God by walking alongside someone who needs encouragement and a reminder that they are not alone. Or if you want to learn about the culture of poverty come to the Mentor / Volunteer training on August 20 and 27 at the Love INC Hamilton office from 6 – 8 pm. No commitment, just exploring where God will use you. Contact Jean at jean@loveincnwa.org to register.

Kid’s Korner ~ The competition at the Junior Reptile Olympics is fierce, and when Morrie goes along with Skink to “positively influence the outcome” the kids run into all kinds of problems. Subscribe for free at getkidscorner.com.

God Answers Job ~ Job gets the opportunity many of us wish for: God himself enters the conversation and answers him. The experience is a humbling one for Job. Join Groundwork in the study of Job 38-42 to see how God answers Job then unpack what God’s response teaches us about why bad things happen to good people. Listen at Groundwork.Online.com.
