UPCOMING EVENTS 

 

ON JUNE 2ND THERE WILL BE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY for those

who have not yet completed a Time & Talent Survey to do so during worship. It is vital that every member be involved in some form of ministry through the life of the church!

 

BOB NICHOLS HEADS UP THE HOMEBOUND COMMUNION TEAM

and he’s looking for folks to assist him once a month. Please consider strongly the giving of just an hour of your time for these who have given so much! If willing, please be in touch with Bob Nichols at 731.446.9413.

 

WE WILL BE RECOGNIZING OUR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

next Sunday, May 19, at the 10:50 service. If there are others graduating from College or Vocational schools you would like to have recognized, please forward their names and graduating information to Sherilyn Brown at [email protected] or call her at 731.885.3573. The annual Senior Display is in the entrance of the breezeway.

 

 

K THRU 5TH GRADERS…ARE YOU READY FOR DAYSHORE?

Dayshore forms for the summer event (June 24-28) are available in the church office or from Morgan Laster! They need to be returned no later than June 1. Please contact Morgan with any questions or concerns at 731.446.7769 or the church at 731.885.3573.

 

*REMEMBER…WITH SUMMER SCHEDULES about ready to kick-in to place, contact Sally George in the church office at 885-3573 if you need to schedule space for a meeting or have an event placed on the church calendar!

 

THE CHURCH PARSONAGE (2012 Stonewall) has a large bed of variegated Canna (leaves are dark green with black stripes) with orange blossoms available to anyone interested! The round bed, encircled with rock, is located in the front yard. Bring your shovel and come help yourself! No need to call ahead. The pastor doesn’t even need to be home! Take all you want…I mean…they’re UT orange for Pete’s sake!

 

ON THURSDAY OF THIS WEEK, GRANT LARCOM, our pianist, will travel with the UT Martin Music Department to New Zealand for their Summer Choir Tour. He will be out Sunday, MAY 9 thru Sunday, MAY 26. Our prayer is for safe traveling mercies to all who will be going. Thank you to the Character Builder’s Men’s Class for helping make this trip possible for Grant!

 

 

HELPING HANDS MINISTRY desperately needs volunteers to work in its Thrift Store. Please contact Stacia McIntosh at 885-3924 if you are able to help.
