Church School Donations
Last summer, in an effort to help support our wonderful Church School teachers who  often use their own money to purchase supplies for their lessons, as well as to continue offering creative programs while helping to keep costs down, the Board of Christian Education tried a new and highly successful Church School Wish List initiative. We will again be seeking free-will donations of needed supplies, but with a slight twist:
Option #1
As this is the end of the school year, if you don’t know what to do with your children’s old,  slightly used school supplies, please think about donating them to our Church School. There will be a basket for them in Patton. Crayons, markers, pencil, and scotch tape are all needed and wanted.
Option #2
Summer is only beginning, but when you are buying supplies for next school year, please think of us!  A list of suggested items follows. This is a way to show your support for this important ministry – our Children’s Christian Education. Please donate if and as you are able.

2015 NEW LOOP SYSTEM INSTALLED IN THE SANCTUARY

Anyone with a tele coil compatible hearing aid can enjoy Sunday morning sermons without the use of additional equipment.  People sitting in the congregation can simply switch their existing hearing aid to the "tele coil" position and they are wired directly into the sound system.  Intelligibility is greatly increased because the distance between the speaker and the listener is bridged.  Background or environmental noise is almost eliminated; there is no echo or distortion produced by the room and sound system. If you do not have a t-coil hearing aid or need help with sound amplification, you are welcome to use one of the three “Loop Listeners” we also purchased. These are small devices worn around the neck that come with headphones. Please ask the ushers if you would like to try one.
