BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS-- NEXT SUNDAY - August 26

THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR IS UPON US !!!

It's hard to believe that our students are going back to school soon! Our church would like to give the kids a good sendoff into the new school year. Please have your children bring their backpacks to church on Sunday, Aug. 26 at the 10:10 service so that we can pray for them and help them start off the school year right! 

Also, if you know of a family within our church in need of school supplies for their children, please reach out to Joana Houff  joanaphouff@gmail.com

LIFEGUARD SUPPERS--THANK YOU FOR A GREAT SUMMER

Many thanks to all who helped.  Our Church of the Outer Banks Lifeguard Supper dates have come and gone.  Even though there's a little summer left to go, as a church community we have completed our service to this ministry for the 2018 season.   The list of contributors comes to well over 40 people involved, counting food contributions, helpers at meals, and anyone else who has helped make this a success.  Thank you to all who have been part of making this happen.  And special thanks to you who have been praying so diligently for the safety of the lifeguards and all our summer guests.  Bless you all.

2018 Annual Meeting -- September 30

On September 30 we will hold our Annual Meeting right after the 10:10 service.  This is a very important meeting each year in our church's life.  All regular attenders are encouraged to be present. 

One of the important parts of the Annual Meeting is the election of new Vestry Members.  Our Vestry consists of 6 members, plus the Pastor.  This year two members, Della Gill and Lori Gibbs, will rotate off the Vestry, and we will elect 2 new members.  The nomination and election of Vestry members is something to be carefully considered and prayed over. Vestry members must be active followers of Christ, at least 18 years of age, and are expected to be mature members of the church and committed to its mission and vision

When nominating someone for Vestry, we ask that you do so confidentially, and without consulting the nominee. The Vestry vets each nominee, and in order to avoid hurt feelings, the Vestry will only approach those nominees who have been properly vetted and meet the requirements. Once the nominee has been notified, they may accept or reject the nomination. The Vestry will then compile a list of the candidates, and will present this to the congregation for a vote to select the vacant spots.

Should you have questions, please feel free to contact the church office. If you would like to recommend someone for nomination please contact Della Gill or Lori Gibbs, or submit via email to office@churchobx.com

SUNDAY MORNING SET UP TEAMS

SET UP TEAMS

Worship at the YMCA is always wonderful... And it happens seamlessly because of our wonderful volunteers. These folks  give a bit of their time to show up a little early to get the gym set up Please consider  helping us on Sunday Morning.  The current commitment is two Sundays on, two off, and it's a great way to serve.  Please see Nelson Pendleton (william_pendleton@nps.gov) or Trahey Maner (enlessumr@hotmail.com) or Pastor Joey.
