Lay Led Service
Warren McWilliams will be the speaker in the Lay Led service at 6:00 p.m. tonight.

Covenant Groups
The purpose of covenant groups is to provide small group fellowship, relationship and discipleship building across a wide section of our church body. Covenant Groups meet 6:00-8:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Sundays beginning September 23.  Most of these groups meet outside of the church in homes.

There will be two types of groups:  specific and intergenerational.

The suggested area of study this year will be from bibleproject.com

If you’re interested in the intergenerational groups, please sign up on the sheet on the office window. Today is the last day to sign up for a covenant group.

 Family Promise Walk for Homeless Families with Children
The Family Promise Walk will take place on Saturday, September 29, at 9:30 a.m.  Registration can be made through a sign-up sheet on the office window and payment to the church or online at www.familypromiseshawnee.org.  The registration fee is $20 for persons over 12 and $4 for children.  Funds raised by this walk help homeless families with children receive help to become self-sufficient. 

Family Promise Rotation
Our next rotation for Family Promise is the week of October 7-13.  The sign up list is posted for meals, evening and overnight hosts.  Will you volunteer in October?  Questions – see Kendal Copeland or Kaylene Barbe. 

Preschool Playground Fundraiser
The Preschool ministry is working towards adding the swing portion for our playground set.  A UBC t-shirt fundraiser is ongoing; shirts will be $20 each (a pic of the shirts is posted on the office window)..  Shirt orders must be received and paid by September 30. 

2019 Budget Requests
Just a reminder that all budget request forms are due back to the church office on or before October 7. 

 Fall Festival
Our Fall Festival is Wednesday, October 24.  We are changing things up and instead of giving candy we will have a “prize counter” items for our participants.  For each game the child plays they will receive tickets that can be redeemed at the prize window.  You can help by bringing new/like-new toys, books, stuffed animals and other items.   Thank you in advance for all you do for our children.  Please see Channing for questions and to deliver donations.
