Our Weekly Blast!

Sewing for School Kids, August 10 & 11
We will again be sewing kid-sized shorts that school nurses can supply when a kid needs an unplanned change of clothes.  Our sewing group is open to sewists of all skill levels.  Beginners are encouraged to build your sew-jo by learning how to construct simple elastic waist shorts.  Patterns, sewing machines and fabric are available, or bring your own.  If you don't sew, you can hang out and help us with cutting out fabric and threading elastic.
 
Sewing will be in the Parish Hall.
  • Saturday August 10, 10:00 - 2:00
  • Sunday August 11, 9:00 - 1:00.  (Join the school prayer walk afterward!)
 
Contact Sondra Griner if you have any questions.
Blessing of the Backpacks, August 11
All children, youth and young adults are encouraged to bring their backpacks to church to be blessed before classes begin throughout our community.  As well, we are blessing each student to have a wonderful year of learning, confident that God and the prayers of their church family go with them every day. Teachers are also encouraged to attend so we can bless them and some teaching supplies.  Take this opportunity to invite students and families of neighbors, friends, coworkers and grandchildren to come, bring their backpacks and participate! 
Back 2 School Prayer Walk, August 11
All BISD campuses will be open on Sunday, August 11th from 1:00-4:00 p.m.  Everyone of all ages are invited to walk the halls and grounds of our BISD campuses and pray for the students, faculty, staff, and administration! Let's bless our schools and our community!

Please sign up to participate in the Prayer Walk to Lake Jackson Intermediate. Lunch will be provided in the Parish Hall.
African Craft Sale, August 18th & 25th
The African Craft Sale is planned for August 18th & 25th , Parish Hall, 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  African Team Ministries has been serving the churches in East Africa for more than 20 years. The proceeds from the handcrafted items for African Team Ministries will make it possible to provide Drip Irrigation Kits for the families in the drought and famine areas to whom we provided emergency food relief. This will enable them to grow food all year round instead of only when it rains. We also resettle displaced people, support orphans, provide AIDS education and prevention and literacy training. Through your support we are giving the gift of HOPE!  If you have question, please contact Sandra Weir.
Children's Choir Resumes September 4
This choir is open to children of all ages.  The first practice will be September 4, starting at 4:30 p.m.  Contact Rachel Wilbanks or Paul Butt for questions.

The summer is slipping away. Backpacks and back to school sales are with us. Classes begin in just two weeks! The Hall will be represented at Meet the Teacher event at L.J.I.  Jackie Koch is printing signs to be displayed around the room. We are getting prepared.

The Hall provides a valuable service to the kids and parents at LJI by providing a safe supervised placed to spend their afternoon once school is out.

Gracious God, bless your Church and all who minister at the altars and care for sacred vessels and linens. Give us an awareness of beauty and mindfulness in holy places that we may enable others to worship and set forward the coming of your Kingdom, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  Amen.
EYC Summer Action
 
Hello Parents and Parishioners!

Every Sunday we meet after church in the Youth Hall for lunch, fellowship and a study. I could really use help to provide and serve the youth lunch. If you could take a Sunday by signing up that would be a GREAT SUPPORT to me and these hungry kids! 

God Bless,
George
