Our May meeting found us shivering in the fellowship hall. I forgot Art said he would not turn up the thermostat, so I guess I’m to blame for the cold!! Nevertheless, the meeting was warm and friendly as we started the discussion of the August Strawberry Social. A request for the temporary permit license from the Oceana Health Department will be submitted.
We move forward – life is good! And – Edie learned to make decent coffee to go with Mitzi’s cookies!
Summer to Fall Happenings
Friday, August 12th – Strawberry Social
Sunday, August 21st – Outdoor Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. followed by a Church Picnic with hamburgers, hotdogs and bring a dish to share. Our Message for the day will be “Do You Remember The Old Sabbath Ways?” so let’s dress in old time attire and fun clothes for a church picnic.
In the fall we will resume our Potluck and Movie Night for anyone who would like to share a meal, company and good entertainment.
For the summer and into the fall, if you have flowers from around your house or garden, would you consider cutting a few of them and bringing them to worship to make our sanctuary look fresh and nice or place them in our fellowship hall? The more flowers we display, the prettier the sanctuary, so when we have more flowers from different members, which is great! Please feel free to take them home after our service and fellowship time.
What a great participation we have had these past few months at “The Gathering” as we live in fellowship, preparing and serving meals to the White Lake Community. This fall we plan to launch a new mission project much like a few years ago when we were able to dig wells and bring clean water to Nigeria. We will be announcing this new mission shortly so stay alert (Hint- it is a wheels mission).
