A Passion for God’s Word
We have a group that meets each Thursday at 10:00 for Bible study. We always welcome anyone, whether you have attended the previous lessons or not. Study material will continue to be available in the Church office or you can contact Chris Burris (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a digital version. Come join us!
Property Sale - Parking Lot
The property north and east of the backyard has been sold. Per the congregational meeting earlier in the year, the proceeds from the sale are being used for the purchase of a new parking lot scheduled for installation at the end of this month.
North Wing Improvements
Work on the North Wing of the church has continued almost non-stop from last November. The floor re-tiling (6400 sq./ft.) was finished in February by “The Tilemen” (a group of retired churchgaffers) and the “Painting Ladies” just finished re-painting the north wing - 300 linear ft. of hallway and 8 rooms - this past week. Currently, one of the two restrooms is well into the remodeling work.
Hospitalized – Frank McManamy
Frank McManamy continues to be hospitalized at Olympic Plaza. Visitors are most appreciated.
NOT JUST FOR PRIMETIMERS
BIG CHANGES FOR THE JUNE MEETING-READ CAREFULLY! Primetimers are sponsoring a Safe Driving Course. The completion of this course may allow individuals to receive a discount on their vehicle insurance premium. . The discount would be only for a discount, not for those wishing forgiveness for an accident or fine. The class will be held during our regularly scheduled meeting in June in addition to the day preceding our regular meeting. The course is 5-6 hours in length, therefore we will be meeting at 12 noon at OSLC on both Wednesday, June 13 and Thursday, June 14, 2018. The cost will be $35 in cash. No credit cards accepted. Participants should bring pen/pencil & paper on which to take notes. Either eat lunch before attending or bring your own lunch( brown bag) and plan to stay for 2.5-3 hours. Ken Pontius, a member of OSLC will be teaching the course. If you have questions, feel free to contact Ken at 903-882-4063.
Be sure to check with your insurance company to see if they will honor the course and give a discount….not all companies do. This course is open to all eligible drivers,, not just Primetimers, So if you can benefit from taking the course, please plan to come and invite friends and neighbors. There is no need to make reservations ahead of time.
Primetimers will be taking the months of July and August off and reconvene September 13.
