A silent auction dessert social will be held after worship on September 16. We need volunteers to bake their favorite dessert and bring it to church Sunday morning, September 16, before worship. Please attach a label with the type of dessert/gluten free/sugar free, etc. After the church service, the congregation will have an opportunity to bid on their favorite dessert for 30 minutes. The winter o the dessert may take it home or share it with others during coffee hour. We need lots of hungry participants to bid on desserts. Proceeds will go to Family Promise
Our annual church picnic has been set for Sunday, August 26. Immediately following worship, we will head to Friends Landing (pavilion 2) where Steve will perform the river baptisms of Ron Claxton, Steve Foshaug, Mercedes Morrill an Patty Winkler, followed by the picnic. If you are interested in being baptized, please contact Pastor Steve.
For the picnic following the baptisms, the congregational life committee will furnish hamburgers and hot dogs, buns, condiments, lemonade and paper products. Last names beginning with A-L, please bring salads, L-P chips/dips, and Q-R desserts. If you prefer to make something rather than your group, please trade with someone else. There will be no fellowship hour on this day.
The annual Choir Retreat set in preparation on the Fall Choir season, has been set for Saturday, August 18, from 10:00a ~ 2:00p, with lunch being provided. If you have ever thought about joining the choir, now is the time!
Monte Pres has launched a new ministry called S.A.F.E (Setting Addicts Free Eternally). The program will meet every Thursday evening, at 7:30p, here at the church. The hope is that anyone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction will take advantage of this Christ-centered, 12 step support group. The group will enjoy fellowship, a Bible study related to one of the 12 steps, share time and prayer time.
