We’re having our annual Fish Fry at the church building (3911 10th Ave) on Saturday, September 29th. We’ll begin at 4:00, eat at 5:00, and then follow on with a Game Night. Marvin Francisco and Jeff Cannon are supplying abundant fish that they caught themselves as well as cole slaw, hot dogs, and French fries. If you can bring a side dish or dessert, that would help greatly!
As the accompanying pictures suggest, Hawaiian Shirt Sunday was a joyous event. Even some visitors came dressed for the occasion! The sermon was from 1 John 5:1-2 about loving the family (ohana) of God. Mahalo nui loa to those who participated.
Sunday, September 23, is Hawaiian Shirt Day at Leavenworth Church of Christ. As we consider what it means to be part of the family of God, we will focus on how love for that family plays out in our relationships with one another. We will talk about laughter, listening, and responsibility for one another. We will remember that how someone is dressed should not determine how they are treated when they worship with us. We invite you to worship with us Sunday. Bible classes begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by the worship assembly at 10:30.
A huge “Thank you!” to all our visitors on Friends and Family Day last Sunday. It was great to meet you. We hope you will keep on coming back!
Friends and Family Day is this Sunday, September 16th. We invite you, your family, and friends to study, worship, and eat with us. The day will begin with coffee, tea, and donuts at 9 am. Bible classes for all ages will begin at 9:30. Our worship assembly will begin at 10:30. It will feature spirited singing, fervent prayer, participation in the Lord’s Supper (Communion), and thought-provoking preaching. Children who ages 2-8 will have the option to go to our Sonshine Express Children’s Service after the Lord’s Supper. After the assembly, we will move to the church’s fellowship room for one of those legendary church dinners. No need to dress up, but you can if you wish.
The past few weeks have been exciting for the congregation. Last Sunday we appointed a new elder, Wallace (Wally) Rachford. Wally is a dedicated student and able teacher of the Bible. He will work closely with the other elders and with our preacher to care for the spiritual needs of the congregation. Our Monday night Bible Study group continues to help hurting people heal and more have come to Christ in baptism through it. Our Wednesday night Men’s Group began a study of the Gospel of Mark on June 12th, and the Women’s Group continues to focus on Prayer. We have well-prepared classes for children as well on Wednesday night.
