WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY OUTDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE
October 4 at 5:00 p.m. – Those, who are comfortable, are invited to join us for a special In-Person Communion Service in our newly-renovated outdoor chapel. SPACE IS LIMITED, so all worshipers must pre-register no later than September 30 in order to attend. Everyone will be required to complete a verbal or written acknowledgment of health. In addition, 6-foot social distancing must be observed and a face-covering must be worn at all times. To make a reservation, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t have email, you may call Pastor Anita at 804-536-8350. Please provide your name, contact information, number of family members living in your home that plan to attend, and whether you would like to sit on a chapel bench or will bring your own lawn chair(s.) This will be our first in-person worship experience since the pandemic and will be a learning experience for us all. Your flexibility and grace is appreciated. [Please note that a worship service will still be shared online and by phone that morning as usual.]
ICE CREAM SOCIAL UPDATE
Ivey's Ice Cream Social is on for this Saturday, September 26th, from 3 to 5 pm at Woodpecker Lodge located at 4718 Woodpecker Road in Chesterfield. We ask that you wear a mask, except while enjoying your ice cream. Please bring a lawn chair to enjoy the outdoors. You can get further information by contacting Beth at 520-0520.
We are planning our Brunswick Stew this year for October 30th with pick up at the church on October 31st. This is, again, a joint effort with our Scout Troop 178. Be sure to reserve your stew as some folks were turned away when we sold out early. Quarts are $7.00 each. You can reserve your stew on Sign-up Genius at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0E4EACA82AA2F94-brunswick, by calling Beth at 520-0520, or leaving a message with your return phone number with the church office at 526-1350, Ext. 0.
The sign-up sheet for workers to help prepare, cook, and stir the stew can be found on Sign Up Genius, https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0E4EACA82AA2F94-ivey, or by calling Beth at 520-0520.
All are welcome and appreciated.
METAL DRIVE NEWS
Due to an abundance of hay at the farm, we have lost our storage area for metal. Please hold on to large items like refrigerators, appliances, etc. until further notice, as we can longer provide a pick-up service. A receptacle for aluminum drink cans will be placed outside the church, probably behind the dumpster. Aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel will be accepted also. The next scheduled metal drive at the church will likely be in the spring.
Food Pantry: Cereal, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Spaghetti 1 lb boxes, Canned Pasta Sauce, Syrup, Pancake Mix, Rice, Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Hamburger Helper, Sugar, Canned Tuna, Pudding and Fruit Cups are needed. Please bring your donations and leave them in the food pantry bucket located in the Narthex. Specifically, we request easy things for children to fix for themselves.
Our Daily Bread Food Pantry is looking for volunteers to help with distributing food or picking up items from the grocery store. If you can help or would like more information, please contact Bernadette Gilmore, 804-914-0293.
