Mid Week Memo

There is so much happening at South in the coming weeks. Here is what's up:

School may be out for the summer, but it’s coming back in just a couple of weeks. So…let’s get ready. We have the opportunity to be a blessing to children by providing them with a backpack and supplies for school. It all happens Saturday, September 6, right here at South from 2-4 p.m. with a Back-To-School Carnival.

We are still taking donations of school supplies now until September 3. Each pack of crayons or #2 pencil can make a difference in kid's lives. Drop of supplies at the church office. We also need six individuals who donate a dozen cupcakes, as well as four individuals who can help with the carnival games. If you would like to provide cupcakes or help with games, email Shirley Blakely by clicking here.

We need 10 volunteers on Saturday, September 13 from 9:15am to 2:30pm. Volunteers will help sort clothing and assist children in shopping for clothing on their list. It will be at Judson Memorial Baptist Church. For more information or to sign up email Carol Burghdoff.

We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's way to handle money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! Classes start Tuesday, September 23 at 7pm.
