Announcements: September 22

Here are a few recent announcements:

  • Yesterday during adult Sun. School class Pastor Carol Ameses came in and asked us to let everyone know there will be a memorial service at the LL Methodist church on Sunday, Sept 29 at 12:30 PM for Herb Chatsky. For you who may not know who he is, he was an excellent accomplished pianist and played at the ME church in LL and Newcomb for years. Before that he led the Air Force band, played at more than one Jewish Synagogue among many of his accomplishments. You can see his full obituary at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/hartfordcourant/obituary.aspx?pid=166836367#fbLoggedOut.
  • Please make note on your calendar that our 8th annual potato harvest will be on Saturday, October 5th beginning at 2:00 PM.  Please all come to help… also health issues should not stop you, sit and visit. There is plenty of help, this is about friendship and fellowship. Bring your friends, children, and grandchildren. There will be an enormous turkey dinner served afterward at the Wesleyan Church. I guarantee it will be enormous and include pies. You really should come and help.
  • Many thanks to Carl & Roberta Chapman and Venita for painting at the church! The Nursery is all put back together and looks so clean and fresh. The old curtains faded a lot when washed. We could use some new ones. There are 6 windows. Actually two regular and four that are together as a double. The walls are now a soft antique cream white. Anyone willing to sew new curtains?
  • Looking for some nice Christian reading material for these colder days/nights? There are two bookcases full of fiction, non fiction. devotional and other genre available. Several books on tape also. It is now upstairs in the hallway. Check them out! Young children’s books are in the nursery.

Announcements: September 1

It was great to see so many in church this morning! Here are some of the announcements:

  • During the next couple of weeks, please try to pick up school items (pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, etc.) to donate to “Larry’s Locker” at our school. This program was started by a former Superintendent to have needed school items on hand for students, since one has to travel so far to get supplies.
  • Starting Wednesday, September 11 at 8 AM, we will be meeting for “Moms in Touch” prayer time for our school and immediately. Then at 9 AM will be a Women’s Bible study “The Shelter of God’s Promises” by Sheila Walsh from
    Women of Faith. Contact Joyce Bozak if you have questions.
  • We have received an update from Manwarings, and have posted their September newsletter here.
  • We’ve added photos of the recent baptisms here and of the Baccalaureate service here.
  • Here are a few verses that I took away from this morning’s lesson on Satan: “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). “So obey God. Stand up to the devil, and he will run away from you” (James 4:7). And “I can do everything by the power of Christ, who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). So even though “the whole world is under the control of the evil one”, we have the power, through Christ, to make him run away from us!
