Grace Café kicks off this Sunday, September 16, with a cookout at noon, and all are invited! Grilled brats and hot dogs with all the usual side salads and fixings will be served. Suggested donations are $5 per adult and $2 per child. Youth in confirmation or older are needed to help prep on Saturday at Jesse and Laura's home in Fort Worth and to help set up and serve on Sunday. If your youth can help (either day) please contact Taylor.
Sunday School began last Sunday with Rally Day. Sunday School is at 10:00 a.m. with classes for pre-school through adult. Remember that worship services are now at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. (nursery at both services).
Photo directory. We will be putting together a photo directory for our members this fall. There are several ways to give your smiles. For four Sunday beginning September 16 Karen Hurtado will be taking photographs. Family members who are not members are welcome in the photo. Karen can also take a photo of any printed picture you wish to use. You can also email a picture to (square pictures, 300x300 are requested). Thank you.
Story Time at Morris Foundation Women and Children's Center (part of the Presbyterian Night Shelter). Members of all ages are welcome to sign up to help read aloud books and do arts and craft activities with children on various Saturdays from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m this year. Please  sign up  at Outreach Kiosk to see available dates. Please see Lori Anderson if you have any questions.
Music rehearsals are held each Wednesday evening and began last week. You can still join in! If you have any questions, please contact Vanessa.
Supper 4:6 is our dinner groups for six, seven, or eight people. Couples or singles can sign up. Groups of 6-8 members will be formed that meet several times in homes to share dinner (you can join in whether or not you wish to host a dinner). It's a great way to get to know more people in the congregation. Please sign up at the Fellowship Kiosk by September 23. If you have any questions, please contact Carol Court.
Adult Sunday School teacher needed. We are in need of an adult Sunday School teacher at 10:00 a.m. beginning September 9 (curriculum provided). If you can help, please contact Kenn Mingus.
