We are continuing the process of seeking to add new deacons. We will finish a two week sermon series today, and continue a class on Wednesday night. Beginning October 5th, our members will have two weeks to submit names of men from among us who fit the qualifications of deacons laid out in Scripture, and can serve within our areas of need. Please make every effort to participate in these teaching opportunities, and please be praying about the process.

Recordings of the sermons and classes (along with downloadable PDFs of Brad’s sermon notes) are now available on our website at stcchurch.org/deacons. If you would like a CD recording of the sermons, let Joyce or Brad know.


Michaela Hinkle came forward on Sunday night requesting prayers for some spiritual struggles she has been experiencing. Let’s be sure to encourage her and pray for her.


On Wednesday, we will be discussing the work of deacons as we seek to appoint new men to work with us. Please be here to be a part of these conversations and studies.


Ed & Donna Hirauk need help moving on October 4th around 10am.


The updated list of college students addresses is now available on the table in the foyer by the main door. Let’s remember to encourage our college students whenever we can.


With the initiative of Dot Saunders, we are beginning to collect stuffed animals to donate to Children’s Services. This will be used to give a little comfort to children who experience trauma and hardship.


Mark your calendars for Nov. 14th-16th for the Fall Retreat. It’ll be here before you know it! As always, we will need chaperones, drivers, and others to help with behind the scenes preparations.
