This letter is chock full of information so some of you may want to read it twice. I am going to
list the things that are happening and then you can transfer them to your personal calendar.

The Children's Consignment sale was a tremendous success. I was overwhelmed by the buzz of activity that was in the building this past Thursday night. People picking up meals, people eating in the hallway, and people shopping in the fellowship hall gave off the energy that a healthy growing church feels. It was exciting.

Thank you to Mckenzie Shappley and Sherri Davis for chairing this year's event. They along with a team of amazing volunteers did a wonderful job. Will you believe that as a result of the  sale we found out that we have at least two people in our church who have relatives from Slap Out Alabama. Mary Alice and Sherri had quite the time determining if they knew any of the same people.

This Sunday we will be Blessing the Backpacks as we begin the new school year. We will be asking anyone that is in school, college or teaches school to be a part of our very special prayer time. If you have an elementary aged child please have them bring their backpacks with them. They will be used as part of the prayer time. I hope as a congregatio0n you each find the time to lift upall the students and schools that are in our area and in our city. Teaching is a noble profession that seems to get harder every year.

Put Sunday, August 27th on your calendar. We are planning a great day of worship and then our annual picnic in the  fellowship hall after the service. .I hope you will also think about someone you might be able to invite to come with you that day. Ben has promised that the music is going to be awesome. I can't wait. I'm glad that we are a congregation that does not mind to have a picnic inside with air conditioning as opposed to  outside with no AC, bugs and mud. It seems this year everything that is not indoors is muddy. Last year we couldn't buy a drop of rain this year the same seems true about sunshine. Plan now to be a part as there will be great worship, the  best food ever and wonderful fellowship. You will not want to miss.

Lots of things are starting up for the fall. I hope you will plan to  be involved. I do want to mention in closing how good God is when we step back and let him be in charge. Remember three years ago when we prayed for a baby? Have you looked around on Sunday mornings and seen how many we have now. Since the twins have started coming we have a big group. I still am praying for triplets so we will wait and see.

Some of you who are more mature and are widowed or single I want you to know that if you begin to see someone and they try to take you to another church I am not going to be happy. Just a little side note so some of you can have a chuckle.

See you Sunday!!!
