    Glenns Corner

    I want to make sure all of you look at our calendar coming up. We have events that give you a perfect opportunity to invite a friend to church. The event would give them a great chance to meet people and get a feel for our church. Other events require a more hands on approach. Take a look and see where your family can participate. We have a booth at King Fest serving food and drinks on Oct. 5, 10 am - 4pm. We will need volunteers to serve Taco in a Bag and drinks in 1 hour shifts. If you can help serve please sign up in the foyer. If you can help prepare food, set up or tear down sign up in the foyer. This is an easy event to do and we will see a lot of people to invite to church that day. 4 to 5 thousand come to this event so come prepared to enjoy King Fest and share with others about Jesus and our Church. All the Money Raised will go to King Outreach Ministries. Once again we are participating in the County Wide Mission Blitz Oct. 10 13. Opening service is at First Baptist on Thursday Night Oct. 10. Works days are set for Oct. 11 & 12. The closing service is a Crock Pot, Pot Luck here at First Christian for the workers at 6pm and a closing service at 7pm. If you love working with your hands and giving back to people who really need it, this is a weekend not to miss. We have some jobs for all ages usually. Our Ice Cream Social, Teen Beach Retreat and the Childrens Ministry Drive-In are during September along with the Chicken Stew/Trunk or Treat on October will be great events for your family to enjoy and bring a friend as stated before. We have the greatest savior in the world and the greatest message in the world. The God we serve sent his son to die for the worlds sins that, whosoever would believe in Him shall be saved. Lets continue to reach out and touch our commu-nity. Love in Christ,


    Lukes Letter to the Flock

    Well here we are at the end of August, the busy

    busy summer months are starting to fade away, but wait

    school is starting. Yes school is in for our Students of all

    ages. That means as family, friends in Christ, and leaders of

    the church we need to all be praying for them! This is a

    time in the year when it seems hard to get back into the

    swing of things. So be encouraging and uplifting to our Stu-

    dents and remind them that they are in your prayers and that

    you are thinking about them!

    With school that means FALL is approaching fast

    and boy am I excited about FALL. I didnt go to Boone for

    school for just any reason, I love the changes in the trees,

    the cool air, the crisp sunrises, football, and of course

    Chicken Stew!

    We have some awesome events coming up and I

    really hope that you will do all you can to get your students

    involved in them! One thing we do not want to do at the

    start of a new school year is push God away! We need to

    draw closer to him more than ever before! Also Sunday

    school is very important for your Students! Please do all

    you can to have them there on Sunday morning @ 9:30 to

    dig into the word and learn how to be a Disciple of Christ!

    Some of the BIG events coming up are...
