Online Giving
Over a busy summer you might like to make the switch to online giving.  It’s easy and a great way to keep your tithes and offerings on a regular schedule.   Electronic giving offers convenience and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.  Direct debit giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.  Credit and debit card giving lets you make offerings automatically on a pre-determined schedule using a credit or debit card.  Online giving lets you go to  www.ubcshawnee.org, (click on the giving tab) at any time to set up an automatic donation plan, change your donation plan, make a one-time donation or view your online donation history. 

OBU Move In Day Lunch
It’s almost here – the day we welcome new OBU students to the Shawnee community!  On Saturday, August 18 freshmen will move into the dorms at OBU.  We help make their move-in experience better by providing a sandwich lunch for students and their families – FREE!  Here’s how you can help.  A sign up list is posted for specific foods and another list is posted for volunteers.  Volunteers are needed to help make sandwiches, greet and mingle with guests and to help with cleanup!  You don’t have to work all day, just sign up for the time that you can be present.  If you have any questions, please see Marguerite. 

Wednesday Activities to return August 22
Mark your calendars!  On Wednesday, August 22, our regular Wednesday evening schedule returns!  Prepared meal, GA’s, RA’s, Mission Friends and Children’s Choirs will get rolling for the Fall semester! 

Thank You
Thank you to the Adult Sunday School classes who contributed gift cards and items for an incoming international student at OBU!  We donated a laundry basket full of items the student will need this semester.  You’re the best!

Preschool Playground Fundraiser
The Preschool ministry is working towards adding the swing portion to our playground set.  Half of the funds needed have been raised, but additional funds are needed.  To raise those funds, they will be selling UBC t-shirts.  Watch for more information soon!

Fall Festival
This year’s Fall Festival in October will have some changes.  We will collect new/like-new toys, books, stuffed animals and any other “prize counter” items for our participants.  We are trying to get away from giving out candy.  For each game the child plays they will receive tickets that can be redeemed at the prize window.  Thank you in advance for all you do for our children.  Please see Channing for questions and to deliver donations.
