Muskegon Cooperating Churches have been contacted. We put in for the date of August 29th. They have to send it in for approval to Grand Rapids. A reply to that date is expected soon.
We are grateful for Amie Anderson, Connie Cerminaro, and Paul Pluger for their service as leaders at Celebration for the last 3 years. Council has compiled a list of nominees of elders and deacons to replace them. Members of Celebration, you are asked to only state your support in favor or against this list of leadership nominees. Paper ballots in the bulletin can be dropped in the offering boxes at church while email ballots may be sent to Pastor Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org before Thursday, August 6. During the worship service on August 9, we will draw the names of 2 elders and 1 deacon from a basket. Financial statements are available at the church.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Sandy Hazelmyer will be starting women’s bible study on July 29th at 10 am. It will be held in her back yard, so there can be the appropriate social distancing. She has ordered a study guides for everyone who has let me know they are coming. She can order more.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT PRAYER MEETING
Wednesday Night Prayer meeting will be meeting this week at 6:45 in classroom 1.
The next book is “The Rent Collector”, by Camron Wright. It is August 12 at 6:30 p.m. on Brenda Swanson’s deck. Please bring your own food.
SERIES STARTING AUGUST 9:
I’m tired of the same worn out promises of satisfaction which never live up to the hype. I’m done with being continually disappointed by possessions or people which never bring lasting contentment. I’ve Had ENOUGH! Join us in our new series from Ecclesiastes as we discover the only source of true fulfillment, meaning, and hope in life.
I have gotten the sign-up sheets made so they will be available Sunday. There are three: Potluck group, Restaurant group and Let’s cook together group. They will be at the information booth for a month or so.
WELCOME TO CELEBRATION CLASS
We are holding a new Welcome to Celebration class for those interested in learning more about Celebration, and would like to become members. We are looking at the later part of July. Anyone interested, please let Pastor Matt or Mindy know.
