Nominations Committee is working on the makeup of our committees for 2018. Members have been sent a letter with the full schedule. If you are asked to serve on a committee, please give  the request your full consideration and prayer. We need all of our members to participate in order to be fully representative.

 

Bible Study Time!!! Pastor Bill has been busy working on his fall Wednesday Bible study. This year he will teach us about the book of Leviticus. You know – that book of the Law that gives all those rules you never remember? Come and find out how they apply to you today. The study will run September 13-December 13 – that’s this week! Mark your calendars and be sure to join him in the Fellowship Hall at noon!

New Children’s Director: As Pastor Bill announced last week, we have a new Children’s Director – Ruth Hudson! She is taking over from Claire Richardson, who is retiring. Ruth will have a church email address you can use to contact her: lambs@missionfumc.com  She is well qualified for the position, having prior experience as a youth director for other Methodist Churches and a degree in education. Be sure to give her a big welcome when you see her.

 

New Nursery Attendants: We have filled out our nursery staff with two new attendants.

Aylin Luna you may know from her many activities here in the church with the youth group. She is sure to be a hit with the little ones.

Dinora Sanchez has worked in customer support and sales and is looking forward to learning all about our youngest members. Be sure to extend a warm welcome to her.

 

Texas Flood Relief If you want to donate directly to the Hurricane Harvey flood relief, you can do so by putting “Texas Flood” either on your check (in the memo), or on your donation envelope. We will be sending the donated funds to the Conference with our monthly apportionments as an extra UMCOR specific donation.

 

Chili’s Update: We ate our way to another $210.00 donation from Chili’s last week. Keep it up! You will get another chance on September 28th.
