Sunday 9/1 - Last Day to Vote on the Repair Projects

Thursday 9/5 - Helping Hands from 9:00-3:00 - Many volunteers can be used for Helping Hands this month.  We have been blessed to have been asked to do projects for our own Nursing Home & the Cancer Center....plus our ongoing projects. Often people think they are not qualified, but a wide variety of skills are needed: coloring, tying, cutting, taping, packing, sweeping, counting, simple machine sewing, and a desire to encourage others. Anyone with an hour or 6 hours can help: men, women, students, young moms with pre-schoolers. For more information: text or call sisters: Joan or Martha.

Friday 9/6 - Hymn Sing at Timber Ridge - The 7th and 8th grade students, teachers, and their families, are invited to an evening hymn sing at the Timber Ridge (Home for the Handicapped) in Morton. Please meet at 6:10 pm at the old Commerce bank in Roanoke. Singing begins at 7 pm.  We plan to go out for pizza afterwards. Please RSVP to Bro. Eric and Sis. Jodi Hoffman.

Sunday 9/8 - Berean Stamp Collection - Many stamps are used for the Bible studies and other materials that they send to the inmates. The ministry is very appreciative of everyone who helps grade the Bible studies. Approximately 5,000 bibles and 10,000 Bible studies are mailed out each year. There will be a basket in the north hall Sept. 8 and 15 if you would like to donate a roll or book of stamps. Additional information about Berean Prison Ministries and their annual banquet is posted on the bulletin board. If you have any questions, please see sisters: Donna or Rebekah Schwind.
