Announcements for 3/9/2014

CHANCEL CHOIR— Time to try the choir out! Afraid to commit long-term? We are looking for  interested people to sing Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter with us. That would mean starting choir now and continuing through Easter Sunday. It’s always great to try something new, plus our faithful, dedicated choir members can use some back-up on occasion. We really are a fun bunch!   See you on Thursdays evenings at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.

LOOKING FOR AN EASY BUT VITAL WAY TO SERVE CHRIST CHURCH?  Please consider being a substitute Sunday School teacher.  This commitment would be just 1-2 times a year when a teacher needs a Sunday off.  There is little to no preparation.  Contact Julie (859)760-4104 or jdascmai@zoomtown.com, or Annelise (859)663-0608.

MISSION TRIP—A sign-up sheet is now available for the work camp and summer ministry program at Washington UCC (WUCC), our local mission church partner in Camp Washington, Ohio, from July 27th through July 30, 2014. Participants would be day campers (return to their own homes each evening) and would assist mostly with the children’s ministry. There is no fee. Please sign the sheet in the narthex no later than March 16, 2014 so we can let WUCC know the number of volunteers to plan for that week.

LENTEN DINNERS—During Lent this year we will again be having a meal on Wednesday nights at 5:30 at a cost of $5.00. All are welcome!  Please consider preparing a meal, money collected will offset your costs ~ contact Linda Gracey (llg1216@aol.com or 859-380-1588)  or Julie Mai (jdascmai@zoomtown.com or 859-760-4104) to volunteer.

LENTEN STUDY – Join Pastor Ryan for a Lenten Study on the Beatitudes. No book or reservation     required, just show up and bring your friends. There will be two occasions for the Lenten Study:
Monday: starts on March 10th- April 7th (bring your own lunch) from 12:00-1:30.
Wednesday: starts on March 12th-March 9th Dinner at 5:30 ($5.00) and study from 6:00-7:30.

WHERE ARE THE PICTORIAL DIRECTORIES?? – Just to keep everyone updated, we are still working on the directories. Please be patient with us, there were many pieces to gather besides just the member photographs. We’re almost finished and hope to have these to the directory company for   completion very soon.  Thanks for your understanding.

FAMILY PROMISE (formerly IHN)* – Our church will be hosting Family Promise guests in the week beginning March 23, 2014.  The sign-up board is in the narthex.  We need dinner preparers, bus drivers, evening hosts, and overnight hosts.  If you are available to assist us that week, please sign up to serve in this very rewarding ministry.  Thank you!
