The Annual Rural Church Fellowship CROP Walk is coming up on Sunday, October 8th.  CROP walks are community-wide events to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world.  Envelopes for fundraising will be available from Carol Knoener for the next few weeks.  Please consider fundraising, donating, and walking with us.  Registration for the CROP Walk is at noon on October 8th at our Shepherd UCC in Howards Grove, with the walk set to begin at 12:30pm. There are two, four, and six mile options for walking around town as we seek to end hunger one step at a time.  All ages are welcome to participate!

Strengthen the Church UCC Special Mission Offering:

Beginning Today envelopes for the annual Strengthen the Church UCC Special Mission Offering will be available on the tables at the rear of the sanctuary for you to pick up and bring back with your gift by Sunday, September 24th.
The Strengthen the Church offering goes to support efforts aimed at building the future of the UCC. Shared at the conference and national settings, the Strengthen the Church offering largely supports youth ministries and full-time leaders for new churches in parts of the country where the UCC voice has not been heard. As God calls our congregations to be the church in new ways, your generosity will plant new churches, awaken new ideas in existing churches and develop the spiritual life in our youth and young adults.

UCC Disaster Ministries Response to Hurricanes

The United Church of Christ has launched an emergency appeal to help with long term recovery following both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Your contributions for Harvey and Irma survivors means providing community support for holistic recovery, repairing house and home for families and children and restoring dignity for the most vulnerable who have lost everything in the wake of these catastrophic events. Gifts to support hurricane relief and recovery efforts can be made directly through Immanuel. All you need to do is indicate on your check or envelope that you desire your contribution to go toward hurricane relief, and we will see that it gets to the United Church of Christ disaster relief fund.

Gifts to support Harvey relief and recovery efforts may be made at your local UCC congregation marked for “Hurricane Harvey”

with the request they be sent through your Conference office or to Wider Church Ministries. Donations may also be sent directly to Wider Church Ministries, Financial Services - 6th Floor, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115.

Daytime Fellowship and Study Group

The Daytime Fellowship and Study Group will be meeting this week on Tuesday, September 12th at 9:30a.m., upstairs in the back Sunday School room. All are welcome!

School Supply Collection

The Women's Fellowship will be collecting school supplies beginning August 27, 2017 and ending September 24, 2017. A table will be set up in church for the donations. Thank you.

Closed Doors

Year-round we need to remember to close ALL doors EXCEPT the one downstairs that leads to the back hallway and stairs on the north side of church. This needs to be done to ensure that we do not waste valuable resources. Thank you!

Assisted Listening Devices

We have several assisted listening devices that are available for use during worship. Please see Mike Gottsacker to get one.

Large Print Bulletins

Large Print Bulletins are available for members who are visually impaired. Please see an usher if you would like one.
