Hand Supplies Needed for Fall

Thanks and blessings to everyone who has donated clothing, backpacks and school supplies for Hand over the past year. Please keep the donations coming! Hand students are still in need of backpacks (new or used), clothing (particularly gloves, jeans, black pants, and T-shirts in sizes 12 and up), can openers, and personal hygiene items. Do you have extra school supplies? Students need flash drives, loose leaf paper, and composition books too.

Drop off items in the break room across from the parish office in Heyward Hall.

Women's Bible Study - What Happens When Women Say Yes to God

Mondays, 7-8:30 pm, beginning September 8 In What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Lysa TerKeurst shares inspiring stories from her own life along with compelling biblical insights as she describes what it means to partner with God in all decisions and actions. Readers will learn to: discern the voice of God and truly say yes to His call; see what wholehearted obedience looks like on a daily basis; give themselves to God; and let Him affect lives around them. This book reveals how honoring God produces a life of deep joy and great purpose. It is an invitation to seek God and boldly ask for and expect more from the Christian life. The Bible study series will meet in the parlor on Mondays, September 8  through October 13, from 7-8:30 pm. The cost to register is $20.
