ANNUAL MEETING AND VESTRY ELECTIONS-- SEPT 29

In just over a week, we will hold our Annual Meeting. This is such an important day in the life of our church, and I hope that you all plan on being present! At the meeting we will give updates on ministries, on the immediate future of the church, on where we are financially for the year (hint: God has been GOOD!), and several other important messages and calls to action.

One of the most important issues we will be doing is electing our new Vestry Members. Below you will find a list of the candidates for election. Please pray over these names and seek God's wisdom and discernment. Each candidate brings unique gifts, insights, and wisdom. All of our candidates meet the qualifications to be a Vestry Member, and show great faith in Christ! No matter who is elected, I believe the church will be blessed!

Candidates:
1. Cindy Barnett
2. Kyle Tribett
3. Jay Tutwiler
4. Greg Stewart
5. Bonnie Gallo

Brief bios of each candidate will be available early next week so that you can know these folks better. We ask your prayers for each of these fellow church members.

Please scroll down to the next item for information regarding refreshments and childcare during the annual meeting.

Annual Meeting Logistics

  1. Children will stay in the service. As this is a family worship service (5th Sunday of the month) there will be no Sunday School during the service. However, nursery will be provided during the service.

  2. Immediately following the service we will take a brief break. Matt and the Youth Group will have some nourishment in the form of baked goods and healthy snacks available to help tide folks over. Please make a donation for these goods, and proceeds will go toward the Youth Retreat in November.

  3. The  Youth will also be providing childcare for the k-5th grade students during the meeting, and the Nursery will be open for our younger children.

Bob Goff Book.jpg

Ladies Evening Bible Study

Ladies, what happens when we stop worrying about a challenging world full of difficult people and instead simply love everybody? If this sounds interesting come to our Fall study! We will be walking through the book “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff. It’s an easy read full of humor and lighthearted stories about loving people as Jesus did.

We will start next Wednesday 9/26 at the church office from 7-8:30. Amazon currently has the book for $11.59 and used for $6.42. Click the link to go directly to their website to order: https://www.amazon.com/Everybody-Always-Becoming-Setbacks-Difficult/dp/0718078136

In addition to the study each week we will be practicing ways to connect with the Lord and building our capacity for Joy!

Peace,
Brandie

OUTER BANKS BEACH SWEEP- THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED

A HEARTY THANK YOU to all who came out last Saturday to help with the OBX Beach Sweep. We had a small number of volunteers (competition with the surf throwdown was evident) who both picked up trash along the access parking area as well as from the beach, and even some sand relocation from the access steps and wheelchair ramp. And after a few of our number headed off to the OBX Brewing Station for some free beer and lunch. It was a great time. Looking forward to doing it again next year.

CONFIRMATIONS

 On September 16th, we will begin confirmation classes for anyone wanting to be confirmed, anyone wanting to reaffirm their faith (for those previously confirmed in another tradition), and for those that are new to our church in general. We encourage each of you to attend this class, even if at the end of the course you decide not to be Confirmed or Received when the Bishop visits. It will be a a great class for discipleship, for growing in our faith, and learning about our church.

    The classes will be held on Sunday morning from 9:15-9:55, and will run for 4 weeks from September 16th-October 14th. If you have questions, please let Joey know.  And remember, confirmation isn’t just for the person who has recently given their life to Christ, but for anyone who wishes to proclaim to the world their intentions to Live on Mission, and embrace their call into the Kingdom of God!

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD 2018

Boxes are now available for you to take and fill to the brim with small gifts for a child in one of the many countries to which Samaritan's Purse takes them. Decide if you wish to fill your box for a child of 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. Then buy school supplies, toiletries, toys, a t shirt...and what they call a Wow! gift. A note from you or your own child is a great addition to the box. Pray for the child who will receive your box. Labels will shortly be available, or you can go online to Samaritan's Purse and print off a barcoded one. This enables you to track your box and eventually find out where yours goes, which is so interesting.

Please bring your boxes to church on November 4. Thank you for the wonderful boxes given last year...we know this year's boxes will be just as exciting for the young recipients!
