Joy Verse: “Though you have not seen [Jesus Christ], you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with JOY that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”I Peter 1:8-9(ESV©)
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD----- FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD “And Jesus called a little child unto him and set him in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:2 Yes, it’s still summer and HOT here in the SW desert, but a great time to shop the “back-to-school” sales for  kid’s stuff.  School supplies, small toys, T-shirts, socks, bars of soap, toothbrushes,  etc.all fit nicely in the  Christmas Child boxes that  will be setting in the narthex the end of September.  It  always feels good to fill a  box or two, include notes with encouragement and prayer verses and return them during October. This year we are hoping to  hold a “gift making” event in  our Fellowship Hall toward  the end of September, so please “stay tuned” for details. GOD IS GREAT and  HE blesses us with the gift of  the  Christ Child. Dolores Moore  
Transportation Ministry- New Ministry Coordinator: Von Knight More volunteers are required so this ministry can continue to be the valuable resource that it has been. Transportation volunteers are called upon to help our members get to medical appointments and LCRS events and worship. The Transportation  Coordinator is equipped with the names and phone numbers of those who have specifically volunteered for this ministry as well as a list of our members by sub-division.  Please consider helping your literal neighbor if called upon. Do you need a ride? Please call ONE WEEK in advance so there is adequate time to get a volunteer for you. Transportation ministry coordinator, Von Knight, will be with family September 16th through October 21.  If you need a ride to a medical appointment, worship or church  event, please contact Deaconess Jeri at least a week in advance.   Office 625-2612 (M-Th), Home 647-9980.

Joyous Jubilee  Thankoffering  –  The Board of Trustees authorized a special thank offering in concert with the conclusion of our Joyous Jubilee † Sharing God’s Grace anniversary year.  Special envelopes in your offering envelope carton are provided for gifts to support our “mother” and “grandmother” churches in Tucson  –  Holy Trinity and Faith –  equally. Contributions will be received from September 14th – October 26th. These  churches  supplied  prayers,  people and funds that resulted in mission “plants” in Tucson, Green Valley and Rio Rico.   We thank God for them.  Please pray about this and consider a generous offering in thanks to our gracious Lord and God!
