City Church Announcements, 9.23.09

*NEW* Mercy Fund, 9/27 On the final Sunday of each month we take up a special mercy fund offering. Whatever is given will be kept separate from our general budget and will be used to aid those in our congregation, and in our community, who have emergency needs. Please prayerfully consider what you might give. But don’t feel that you have to give --- it really is an opportunity for regular attenders to invest tangibly in what God is doing here.

*REMINDERS*

Vespers, 9/27 Everyone is invited to take part in our monthly Vespers service this Sunday right after church (5:30 to about 7:00). This is a time for us to share a meal and discussion about various events and opportunities within the church. Please bring a dish to share. A Weekend to Remember, 11/6-8 Family Life is hosting a conference in Richmond over the weekend of November 6-8th suitable for both married and engaged couples. Erik has set up a group rate discount so that it will cost $180 per couple. Some scholarship may be available from City Church. Check out this site (http://www.familylife.com/groups/citychurchrva) for more information and to register in the group. Contact Erik with any questions or problems.
