What’s Happening Church Wide?
Week of August 25-31, 2019
Seven new adult ministry classes begin this Week!
Follow Jesus through Galilee, the ruins of Rome, and the Temple Mount and study his teachings with Eddie and Cindy Harris on Wednesday nights. Or, journey through scripture and see how the Old Testament flows together to tell one long, drama-rich story with Adult Ministry Assistant Robyn White. Studies exclusively for men and women are also available.
On Top of Spaghetti…
Before those Adult Ministry Classes begin—and before your kiddos head to Kids Town from 5:30 to 7:30—why not have dinner together at Asbury. Chef Bill Marcie is our resident chef who cooks up scratch-made meals every week. Spaghetti, Meatballs, Garlic Bread, Salad Bar, and Dessert is on the menu for August 28. We need your RSVP by Monday at noon to prepare!
Cost: $8 for Adults; $5 for Kids; $24 for Families (max two adults).
Love Our Flowers?
Your fellow church members arrange the sanctuary flowers every Saturday before worship and they’re looking for a few new volunteers to learn the art of floral arranging. Save the date for a two-part training session in the flower room (behind the sanctuary):
Wednesday, September 4, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, September 11, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Giggles & Grace
Toys. Clothes. Furniture. Decor. All of those essentials for babies and kids can be found at Giggles & Grace Consignment Sale, September 6 & 7. The sale is open on Friday from 8:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to noon with some half-price items.
This giant event is entirely volunteer run and the team needs lots of folks to pitch in. Make new friends, support missions organizations across B’ham, and SHOP EARLY ON THURSDAY!
