On this Labor Day weekend, we have an opportunity not only to end the summer season with an extra day of rest, but also to reflect upon human work and its real meaning in our lives.  Work is not a burden or curse inflicted upon the human race. Rather, it is an invitation to work with the Creator in the re-creation of the world. Welcome to this service.


Wednesday Bible Study 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.  .  We are studying the Apostle Paul.


Linda Warren is going to have surgery this week.  Margaret Harbin had more surgery last week.  Johnnie Ruth is in room 113 White Oak Manor.  Margaret Alice Haun recently fell and bruised herself badly.  Ruby Quinn, sister of Frances Nivens, has also returned to White Oak.  Please remember all our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.


For the next two weeks, we will be gathering food for our local helping agency, PATH.  There are boxes in the narthex of church.  Bring what you can.


Go with us to see Linville caverns next Saturday (September 9).  The van will leave the church at 8:00 a.m.  Please note that the caverns are damp and have a constant temperature of 52 degrees (so bring a jacket).  Also you will be required to walk some distance.


The Session and Diaconate will meet jointly next Sabbath, September 10, at 7:00 p.m.




Wednesday, September 13
