Ice Cream Social & Crazy Hat Celebration

Robert Smith’s 20th Anniversary

Wednesday, August 22

6:00-7:30 PM

at the Aycock Farm

1786 Bost Rd., Morganton

Join us at the Aycock Farm as we celebrate Robert Smith’s 20th anniversary as our Director of Music. We will mark this milestone with two activities Robert loves—trying different flavors of homemade ice cream and wearing crazy hats! Bring ice cream and/or toppings, lactose-free and sugar-free desserts, lawn chairs, and swimsuits and towels if you’d like to take a dip in the pool. Wear the most outlandish hat you can find—we will have a contest to declare a Crazy Hat Champion! So we can be sure to have enough, call the church office at 828-437-1811 to let us know what you’re bringing. All are welcome!

 

 

BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS

SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 10:55 AM 

The return to school, starting a new grade with new teachers and students, even new schools, is a big deal for children and their families! We want children to know that their lives are important to the church. We also want them to hear that God is with them at school and that the church cares about what happens there. God and church are not “off to the side” or just a Sunday thing. So children and students of all ages, as well as teachers and staff, are encouraged to bring their backpacks for a special Blessing of the Backpacks during worship on Sunday, August 26. Each participant will receive a special “Blessings Tag” for their bag.

AUGUST 26, 5:00 PM, CHURCH CHAPEL 

We will have a special time of worship on August 26, 5:00 PM, that includes a meditation for the end of summer, the ordination of an elder, and the sacrament of baptism. If you have not been baptized or you have a child who has not been baptized, please contact Rev. Dr. Wanda Neely to learn about receiving this sacrament.
