Church bulletin announcements for the week of 09/20/15
The church voted in our last business meeting to put new insulation and siding on the parsonage this fall. The cost of the project is $13,050.00. Donations have already been made towards the project. If you would like to contribute towards the new siding, designate your gift with the word "siding." Please remember, we are asking the donation be above your tithe or offering. We don't want to take away from the rest of the church's ministries you've already agreed to support. And thank you for your support!
The Outer Limits Youth Ministry would like to announce that youth will be available to help perform basic lawn maintenance and household chores for church members. Any donations received will be used by the youth doing the work to defray the cost of attending events/retreats. Contact Chip (410-937-0659) or Danielle (443-356-3438) to arrange for a member of the youth to come and serve.
Women of all ages are invited to breakfast and a time of fellowship on Saturday, September 26 at 9:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring a light dish to share if possible. We ask that you bring the following supplies for our service project: flannel material, towels (may be used if not discolored/bleached), scissors, sharpie black markers to trace with. If you are unable to attend, you may donate materials. We also need ladies that can sew. Please contact Carol Allen or Blanca Ratzlaff with any questions you might have.

Sunday Morning Van Drivers Wanted
We have had a request by several of the children from VBS to get a ride to church Sundays. These kids have no church . . . unless we follow up with them by arranging to get them to church. So we are looking for van drivers and riders to pick up kids and potentially their families for Sunday Bible Study and worship at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday. If we get enough drivers, we can rotate through those drivers so that maybe someone would only have to drive one (1) Sunday each month. Do we have a heart for the children and do we want to see souls saved? Can you help us with this particular ministry? Let us know by calling the church office. Or maybe you just want to pick up kids on the way to church yourself. Let us know that too. Thank you for your consideration of the work of the church for Jesus' sake.
