Summer’s almost gone- that’s so sad. Time flies when you’re having fun.
NOTE: A parishioner of ours is in need of some help at her home. It requires power washing, edging the yard, and a couple of simple tasks. Who can help me next week (Aug. 3rd or 4th)? I have the power washer but we need someone who has an edger or string trimmer.
Here is the August schedule:
Sunday, July 30 (Note: different from original plan): Movie night at 6:30.
Weds., August 2: 5:00 Adoration in the chapel. 5:30 House open for light dinner . Then those who want to participate will take a SELF-DEFENSE course from Joey Goff. It’s designed really for the ladies, but gentlemen are also welcome. (I ask that you make a $10 donation for his time and effort). Bring exercise clothes to change into after Adoration. Hopefully we’ll have the gym for this. Otherwise it will be in the Spirit House. (Those not participating might want to go to the movie night that the Scouts are putting on in the Murphy Center at 6.)
Sunday, August 6: Our 2nd annual Car Rally at Dauphin Island (a scavenger hunt of sorts, but in cars), starting at 1:00 pm. This is one of our favorite events so don’t miss it. I MUST HAVE ADULT DRIVERS TO DRIVE THE TEAMS! WITHOUT THEM, WE CAN’T HAVE THE EVENT. PLEASE CALL IF YOU CAN HELP OUT- MUST HEAR FROM EVERYONE BY FRIDAY, AUG. 4TH.
Meet at the parking lot just past the Circle K and Ship N Shore Supplies on your right (just after getting on the island). If you get to the water tank, you’ve gone too far. After the hunt, we’ll go to the public beach for a treat and time on the beach until about 4:30.
Weds., Aug. 9: House open from 7:00 – 8:30.
Sunday, Aug. 13: Our other big event is the 13th annual Battle of the Sexes, a crazy time playing all sorts of kids’ games vs. the other gender. There’s a trophy involved, so it’s very competitive. Bring your friends and plan to get wet and/or messy. Bring a towel, too. This is at the pavilion from 2 – 4.
Weds., Aug. 16: House open from 7:00 – 8:30.
Sunday, Aug. 20: 6:30 – 8:30, Dinner with Praise and Worship. Let’s start the year off right.
Weds., Aug. 23: Study Hall from 5:30 – 7. Please don’t come until 7 unless you have work to do. We did well with this early in the school year last time but it didn’t last. Please abide by this all year this time.
7 -8:30 House is open to hang out.
Sunday, Aug. 27: PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!
Canoe trip from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Reservations are required no later than
Aug. 25th. Cost is $25, plus your permission slip (will be on the website). Call me at 391-4168 or 661-5130. (You can bring your form and money that day.) Chaperones are needed for this trip(don’t have to pay)! Families are welcome, too. We will meet at the church parking lot and follow each other to Sunshine Canoe’s pick-up spot. You are responsible for your own transportation but I can take 4 with me. Bring: a lunch (in a Ziploc bag), 2 drinks, towel, sunscreen. DON’T BRING ANYTHING VALUABLE!
