Requested & Expanded Announcements
September 17, 2017

Noisy Offering ~ The Sunday School children have started the “noisy offering” and appreciate you giving your pocket change. For the months of September and October the children are collecting to purchase wheelchairs for Nigeria. The wheelchairs help people who are disabled by disease or war get around in their community. They also would like to purchase farm animals for various countries through the World Renew Gift Catalog. Help our Sunday School children purchase these items for others.

Pick-Up for Jesus Transportation ~ As a church we want to open our doors to children of the community to come on Sunday mornings to hear of Jesus love through Sunday School. We need willing adults to volunteer to pick-up children at their home on Sunday mornings, sit with them until dismissed for Sunday School and bring them home. If you would be willing to volunteer, please sign the sheet at the Welcome Table. We need to plant the seed of Jesus in these children.
