*UPDATES*

Thanks! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Back to School Supply Drive this past Friday at Maymont Elementary. It was very well received by the kids and the school administration. While dropping off the back packs, we had a chance to sit down with each of the kids to talk with them. It was fun to encourage them in the start of a new school year as we wrote their names on the back packs.

*REMINDERS*

Loaves & Fishes, 9/20 Our opportunity to serve at Loaves & Fishes is this Sunday, September 20th. We will meet at the Conrad Center (1400 Oliver Hill Way) to prepare and serve a meal. Please contact Kira Disse at kmdisse [at] gmail.com

Sunday Conversation Please join us for the Sunday Conversation, from 2:30-3:30 PM in the church basement, as we consider chapter 2 in Sidewalks in the Kingdom--a book about how Christians should think about the city.

Have a great week, everyone!
