Church Chix Socials
The Chix had an amazing June social, dining at the Ten-O-One Club. There were 10 Chix in attendance and while service was slow, the food was delicisou! Our July social is planned for Thursday, July 6th at 6pm. We’ll dine at the Cheesesteak Rebellion located at 1301 S. Broadway. To RSVP email firstname.lastname@example.org or there’s a sign up sheet on the bulletin board. Hope to see you then!
We ended our 2022 Season as the Division Champions so we were moved up to the highest Division in the League for 2023. Although last season we knocked it out of the park, with our new Division placement we haven’t prevailed as often as we’d have liked with more losses than wins so far this year but we’re not going to let that get us down. Thank you to all who’ve come out to support our team on game day and for those who haven’t made it yet, please check out the schedule on the bulletin board and join us for an upcoming game. Hope to see you at the ballpark!
Outdoor Worship & Potluck Picnic
We had a spectacular Sunday for our outdoor worship service on June 18 and are grateful to the more than 50 people who attended. The orientation was turned around this year so that more people could set up chairs on the sidewalk and avoid the uneven grass. It also allowed us to see how many cars drove by on Ashland Ave and waved or honked as they noticed us! Fourteen members assisted with the story sermon about the Sower and the Seeds or ushered, read scripture, and sang for the service. Then we all joined together inside for a great picnic lunch. Let’s do it again in August!
Ginney Amen’s Celebration of Life
A celebration of our beloved Ginney Amen’s life was held on the occasion of what would have been her 104th birthday on June 9 at Lyndahl Funeral Home. While we were all sad not to have the opportunity to celebrate her here at her church, many members attended the visitation with her family and plenty of stories were shared. Ginney has completed her baptism and lives on in her heavenly home, thanks be to God!
A congregational meeting was held on June 11 following worship to elect new deacons and elders. We also approved revisions to the Bylaws of the church, bringing them up to date regarding sizes of the boards, number of congregational meetings to be held each year, and other details. The updated bylaws are available for anyone to read—please contact the church office for a copy.
