October 22 & 29 During Coffee Hour
Join together in Paxton Hall to celebrate how you have served in 2017 and pledge to serve in 2018. On the 22nd & 29th our coffee cups will be travel cups so we can fill up with tea or coffee and visit four stations in Paxton Hall. First you get your coffee and a sweet treat. While you in line for your coffee you can also order your Butter Braids from the Preschool and your Christmas Wreaths from the Sr. High. Then take a sip of coffee and move on to these stations
1. How do you serve now station? See the large paper or poster boards near the wall? Write your name and put how you served God in 2017. Did you go on a service trip? Did you make a meal for someone? Sing in the choir? Teach Sunday School? Whatever it is that you did, we want to celebrate how it served God. Write it down and it will become part of our prayers to God.
2. See Kimo Hemmes & Bob Huxtable at a table? That is a station where you can pick up your pledge card for 2018 or even fill it out there. You can ask any questions you can about the budget or finances and find out how to pledge online.
3. Look at the Table with decorated for Harvest! At that table you sign up to be on a list of people who can purchase or cook a meal for another person or family after hospitalization or other times of trouble. Maybe you work full-time and making an extra dinner isn’t possible, but would you be able to run to Mariano’s, Blue Goose or Jewel and leave with a meal in a shopping bag? We will provide a list of pick up meals to make it easier for you to help. When a family has a need, we email out the entire list and someone who can make it work, accepts the task for God.
4. Last stop, Look for the table decorated with crosses. Can you pledge to make one visit to a person who cannot get to church between now and December 31st? It doesn’t have to be on Tuesday morning and you do not need any experience. Simply sign up and the pastor will give you a name to call and set up a visit. We want everyone, not just those home during the day to be able to take someone a devotional and visit for a few minutes. This is bringing your heart to the heart of others. All ages welcome!
You can do two stations a week and visit with friends or hit them all at once. This festival is to celebrate how we serve and to meet the needs of our church community in the near future. We are all rebuilding our goals with Christ! Come and be part of the celebration.
