Dear Church Family,
Psalm 61:1 “Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.”
The weather forecast looks like we should be fine for meeting outside tomorrow. It is possible that could change. Please check for an email tomorrow morning if plans would need to change. We also post on the church website and on the church FaceBook page. We call people that we know do not have computers, but you can always call or text Pastor Mark if you are not sure of the plan. We are prepared for indoor services should they be needed. This week we would have a service at 9 am where masks are worn the entire service; and a service at 10:30 am where masks are worn until you are seated, and then they could be removed. Again, this would only be if we announce that we are moving to two services in the morning. We would announce it by 7 am.
We have our new Annual Church Yard Sale date. We are planning it for Saturday, September 5, from 7 am to 2 pm. We are planning for the yard sale, car wash, food table, and bake sale elements of the day. Please let anyone know on the Body Life Committee if you would be open to heading up or helping with any of those areas. We will need lots of help with pricing, baking, food preparation and purchasing, and bringing in your stuff. We plan to be ready to start collecting items this Sunday. We hope to have a sign-up sheet circulating this week.
Word and Worship Committee is meeting Wednesday, August 26, at 7 pm.
Online giving is available on our website at www.buttervalleycc.org under the drop-down menu “Resources.” You can also mail checks to the church office at BVCC, PO Box 97, Bally, PA 19503. Thank you to all for your faithful giving during this time.
Thank you for bringing in the School Kits this year. Please be in prayer that they would help to bring people closer to Jesus. If you forgot your kits at home, please let Pastor Mark or Holly know.
Kitchen Giving Update–We have seen $15,000 come in so far, and we are only $5000 from our goal. The stove is in the kitchen. The cabinets have been ordered. Praise God that it is coming together through the generosity of His people! Thank you!
Pray for mercy from God, healing for our country, and guidance for our leaders.
Pray for the completion of the building addition as it nears the end of the project.
Opportunities to Gather
We are having weekly Prayer Gatherings on Sundays from 9:30-10:00 am inside the Sanctuary with the air conditioning. All are welcome to join in this time of prayer for our communities, this country, and the world.
Our Worship Service begins at 10 am. Please feel free to invite others to our outdoor services. Come out and join us in your folding chairs or remain in your vehicle. We continue to stress giving at least six feet of distance between people while talking or sitting. The message this week is from Psalm 61 & 62 entitled “Lead Me Higher.”
