Here’s a look at the announcements from the July 29 bulletin:
There will be a Nominating Committee meeting on Monday, July 30th at 5:30 pm in the FLC.
A guest speaker, Mathew Pinson, will deliver the message on August 5, helping us to kick off a Lay Revitalization Workshop that will be held Friday, Aug. 17 and Saturday, Aug. 18, at Young Harris Memorial UMC. Pinson, who works for the Candler School of Theology at Emory University, is a passionate speaker and will help us prepare to use our own talents to brainstorm ways to make a stronger congregation and reach out to the community in Athens. Come hear Mathew Pinson next Sunday.
We want to make sure that all of the information in our ACS people suite is up to date. This keeps track of address, email and phone numbers. Please call the church office to make sure that we have all of your correct information. Thank you in advance for your help with this, we greatly appreciate it.
Chase Street School Supplies- Young Harris Church is once again collecting school supplies for Chase Street School as one of their “Partners in Education”. Some children do not live in situations that provide even the basics. Many of you have contributed in the past and we would hope to see church wide participation again this year. If you would like to make a donation, there will be a box available in the fellowship hall. If you wish to make a monetary contribution, please mark your donation for “Chase St. School” and backpacks and supplies will be purchased with the contributions. Deadline to donate is Sunday, August 19, 2012.
REVITALIZATION WORKSHOP: Mark your calendars. Young Harris Memorial will hold a revitalization workshop the weekend of Aug. 17-18. Small groups will brainstorm how to build on what we have as a congregation to draw new members and help existing members connect with God and one another. Please pray for this upcoming planning time which will map out future programs and initiatives for Young Harris Memorial UMC. More details will be announced in coming weeks.
