Go Ahead, Have a Cow – Since 1944 when Dan West began sending heifers to Puerto Rico to give children “not a cup but a cow,” Heifer International has helped over 4,000,000 families in 118 countries become selfreliant by providing food and income-producing animals. The Sunday School children are doing extra jobs around home to earn money to buy animals for the Heifer Ark (located in the downstairs hallway). The Vacation Bible School surprised themselves and were able to buy three goats. It will cost $5,000 to purchase an Ark. The Sept. 6 communion offering will be your opportunity to help the kids “Fill the Ark” for Heifer International. We are on our way, and with everyone’s help we will succeed.

Seminar on Grief and Healing

The church is offering an 8-week Seminar on Grief and Healing on Wednesday afternoons beginning Wednesday, September 16 at 4 pm. The purpose of the seminar is to help those experiencing the loss through death of a loved one in their lives. It could be a family member, other relative, or a friend. It does not matter how long it has been since the loss occurred, as grief over a loved one comes and goes. This seminar will offer an opportunity for growth and healing with a spiritual emphasis.  Any questions, please call the church office or Kathy Johnson.
