NEW PROCEDURE FOR FELLOWSHIP HOUR CLEAN-UP The Council of Ministries has changed the way that we coordinate the clean-up of Fellowship Hour. Chris Taylor has agreed to serve as coordinator to organize and manage the sign-ups for this weekly task; we ask that individuals/families from the church volunteer to do this just once or twice a year. If you are willing to help ensure that this community-building tradition continues, please say “yes” when Chris asks you.

Save the Dates for our new ‘Broadway at the Brook’ series premiering on September 17th!

There will be five worship services that invite us to see the timeless themes of the Christian faith through the eyes of modern theater performances as our modern lesson. Each Sunday, there will be an enactment through song or a brief scene. We will hear the ancient testimony of Scripture. Our Sermon for Sunday will be based on the blending together of an element of the play and the morning Scripture.
Please invite your neighbors, co-workers, colleagues, friends, and family to join us for this exciting experience!

September 24 Fiddler on the Roof

5-6:30 pm, Spaghetti Supper – The supper is a fundraiser for the youth group, and will consist of spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, and dessert. The cost will be $7 adult, $5 child, $25 family maximum.

7:00 pm – Come one come ALL to our Talent and Treasure Night at Brookside! It will be a wonder-ful evening to connect with your fellow church family members! BUT we need YOU!! We need you to share a talent you may have – do you sing? Do you tap dance? Can you tell a great story? Can you make people laugh with your funny jokes? We want you to join us to perform! However, we are also looking for those of you who have less than obvious talents… do you cook and want to share a recipe? Do you collect stamps, spoons or some other cool thing? Do you take gorgeous pictures that you would be willing to share? We will have tables set up to show off your talents as well. Please contact Kim for details.

Be sure to come early and share in the spaghetti dinner prepared by and supporting our youth group – looking forward to a fabulous night of sharing!
