Saratoga Chapel Weekly Spotlight – August 19, 2018


WELCOME VISITORS – Thank you for worshiping with us this morning. Please stay and visit with us during coffee hour after the service.  Nursery is available throughout the service. Children ages 4 and up are dismissed for Junior Church during the service.  Please fill out the Visitor Card in the bulletin and drop it in offering plate, so we can acknowledge you and get to know you better.

SOUND SYSTEM, As you may remember we had trouble with the sound system on Sunday July 22nd.  It has been determined that the sound mixing device is completely shot.  Jim Mead has graciously lent us his sound mixer board as we try to come up with a permanent fix.  A new sound board will cost $1,500.  We did not budget for such an expense so we are asking everyone if they might make a designated contribution to help pay for the new sound board.  Please mark your envelope “sound board” or put “sound board” on the memo line of your check.  If more money is raised than what is needed, the excess will be put in the general fund.

CHURCH FINANCES: The quarterly financial report is on the table at the back of the church.

 SPECIAL VISIT: Sunday September 2nd the chapel will have Dan Emerson and family visit.  Dan will be giving a mission update on their work in Tajikistan as well as giving the message.  This Sunday the 2nd of September will also be our first pot luck lunch after church.

SAMARITANS PURSE: I know it seems that the time to fill boxes for Samaritans purse is long time away but right now is a good time to buy school supplies for the boxes.  Just last week someone was able to get 20 boxes of crayons FREE with some coupons.

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL will start at 8:30 AM and be led by Pastor Jim and held in Pastor Jim’s office.  We will be studying Luke 5, focusing on living out your faith in the world

PHILIPPIANS The women’s inductive Bible study will be taking a break for summer and will resume in the Fall.  At that time we can see if anyone new would like to join us.
