Serving in Worship July 31, 2016
This Sunday begins the Slocum's 6 week sabbatical. During this time their family will be stepping away from all of their responsibilities at Jonah's Call allowing them to be refreshed and renewed. We ask that the congregation honor this time for them by not reaching out to them via phone or email. Instead please send any needs or requests to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address, all requests will be answered by one of our vestry members.
Donate to Jonah's Call
Sign up this week to Volunteer at The BIG Sale!
The BIG Sale is less than a month away and now is your chance to sign up to volunteer. We encourage you to sign up using our online form or filling out the bulletin insert on Sunday. There are opportunities to volunteer throughout August and of course at the sale itself.
This is our big outreach event and consider it an All Church Event, so we encourage everyone to take part in one way or another.
Still available this week is the Big Sale Guide and cardboard boxes. View the guide online or pick up a hard copy on the back tables on Sunday - it provides you with more details on what to donate and how to volunteer. You will find the cardboard boxes in the glass hallway - please take one or more home with you, fill it up and return the box(es) sometime between August 7th and August 22nd to the New Catacombs.
Please contact Melissa if you have any questions.
Rev. Jonathan Millard is the Rector of Church of the Ascension and we are excited to welcome him to Jonah's Call. Jonathan has been at Ascension since 2004 and was previously Rector of Trinity in Washington PA and also Church Stretton in Shropshire England, his home country. He has a background in Law and Theology and was ordained in 1992. Jonathan will conclude our Sabbatical Series, as Jay and Catherine will be returning next week, preaching on the passage Romans 8:26-39.
Prayers for Nam as he Travels
A brief message from Nam: "This August I’ll be going to Tokyo, Japan to attend an academic conference for one week, then heading back to Australia until the end of August to visit my new nephew. I'm praying for God's blessings on him, and strength, wisdom and guidance for his parents as they welcome their first child."
