August 8, 2019

PLEASE REMEMBER:  There will be NO 9:30 am Sunday School / Discovery Group hour beginning this Sunday and continuing through September 1.  WE WILL HAVE ONLY THE 11:00 AM WORSHIP SERVICE.  THERE WILL BE NO CHILDREN’S CHURCH DURING THOSE SAME SUNDAYS BUT WE WILL HAVE OUR NORMAL NURSERY AND JITTERBUGS CLASS FOR 3-5 YEAR OLDS.

 

A WONDERFUL TIME WAS HAD BY ALL AT THE ANNUAL CHURCH SERVICE & PICNIC OUT AT CAMP GILEAD !!

We had a large group of Counselors & Staff from the Camp join us and the weather cooperated beautifully.  Thanks to Ken Mills for the sermon on SERVING GOD BY SERVING OTHERS.  If that spoke to you and you would like to find a place to serve here at EBF, see Pastor Robin, one of the Elders, or me – we’d love to find just the right place for you to fit in.

 

Update on Pat Neumann:

Pat is doing so much better and she thanks you for your prayers – it was great to see her and Glenn at the service out at Camp Gilead on Sunday.  When her body is healed, she will be having another surgery for more hernias that will be a bit more complicated so begin praying for her NOW!

 

For more Prayer Reminders, please see last week’s EBF Update (below).

 

MEN !!  Don’t forget the Men’s Breakfast this coming Saturday, August 10 at 8:00 am.

EVERYONE (Men, Women, Kids) !!  Church Workday from 9:00 am to Noon.  We will be weeding around all the new plantings so please bring small hand tools and gloves.

 

We get together each Sunday evening at 5:00 pm for our Share & Prayer time.  We meet to pray for one another, our OIKOS, our missionaries, etc.  All are welcome – kids are included in the prayer time.

 

This coming week is the last week of summer camp at Camp Gilead (August 12-17):  Eva & Alastor will continue as part of the High School staff and Trevor Wallace will conclude his fourth year as Counselor.  Please remember the three of them in your prayers.
