HELP AT THE UNION COUNTY SHELTER
Our church is currently responsible for meals for the Monroe Shelter on the first Tuesday of each even numbered month. We are in need of a Care Group/Groups OR individuals to help serve the upcoming month, October 2nd. The sign-up sheet is at the top of the stairs in the lobby of the sanctuary.
PLEASE SAVE THIS CALENDER DATE October 6 ~~ CHURCH WORKDAY
Many hands truly do make light work, so please come out beginning at 8am (or as soon as you can get here) and help our deacons with some fall cleaning and repairs. Questions? Contact Dave Thrun, Deacon Chariman
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD PLANNING
Community Church plans to continue this year in our participation with Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Our collection dates are set for November 4th & 11th. More information will be passed along to you as we receive it.
SEPTEMBER MEMORY VERSE
During each month we are working to memorize God’s Word. Our target for September is 1 John 3:18: “Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.” (NASB) Please choose your favorite translation and hide God’s word in your heart.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK TO THE FOLLOWING:

From Your Elder Board
Your Elders seek your prayers for all impacted by hurricane Florence. If anyone in our church has/had Florence weather related issues, please contact an Elder. We ask our Lord that people experiencing the effects of Florence in any way shape or form may find Him.
Continue to pray for the Monroe Charter Academy lease review process.
Pray for our church as we approach establishing the 2019 budget. Estimate tithe/gift forms will be available next Sunday for all attendees to record their gifts/tithes for 2019. This is not an individual record estimate of giving, no names are attached to the estimate. Your Elders need these estimates to help in forming the budget (Luke 14:28: For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the costs, whether he have sufficient to finish it?).
From Your Pastor Search Committee
Your Committee continues to review the resumes and ministerconnection.net files of potential men to be our future pastor. It is the Committee’s intent to have a listing of the top 10 men from individual Committee member reviews to which the Committee will identify the top 5 men to consider for our pastor by the end of September. Please continue to hold each committee member in your prayers during this process. It is most difficult since each member must stay focused on the needs and desire of church constituents and not their own. Your Committee members are: Ted M, Jim W, Carla B, Deb B, Tom B, Brett B, and Dave T.
