2018 Capital Campaign Commitment Card



September 16, 2018

Following Jesus is for whom?  Losers!  Come explore what that means in worship this Sunday, September 16.  Scripture lessons are Psalm 19 and Mark 8:27-38.  Worship service times are 8 and 10.  Sunday school is back for all ages this week.  Adult Forum (parlor, 8:45) will have a presentation by Diane Fitch, Sally and Lee Bowie, all of whom went on a trip to explore Israeli/Palestinian relations a few months ago.  Bible Study (room 108, 8:45) will be led by Stephen Kim with a focus on the books of Ruth and Jonah.  Also at 8:45 are the following: Confirmation Class (9th grade) in the Malachi Jones room; 7-8th grade class in the MM Harris Room; High School Dialogue in the Richard Treat room.

Do you wonder how our gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing get used?  Margeret Mwale, a PC(U.S.A.) staff person who works with Self-Development Of People, one of three programs funded by OGHS, will be with us in the parlor following the 10 a.m. worship service this Sunday for a presentation.  Come hear about this life-changing program we help to fund!

Parents of Youth going into 7th-12th grade are invited to a meeting about choir and youth fellowship for the coming year in the Parish Hall this Sunday from 4-5:30.  If you know children or youth who would benefit from involvement in APC’s children and youth music ministries, please let John and/or Ruth Sall know about them and how to invite them.

There are bell choir rehearsals on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (check with Janet Tebbel jtebbel97@gmail.com for info).  Cherub and Carol Choir gatherings are on Wednesdays.  Check with Ruth Sall ruth.sall@apcusa.org for info.

If you are interested in being a part of the Chancel (Sunday morning 10 a.m. worship) and/or Oratorio (community) choir, touch base with John Sall jsall@apcusa.org or just come to rehearsal on Thursday nights – Chancel choir rehearses at 7:30 and Oratorio choir is at 8:30.

There are two Wednesday bible studies that meet in the parlor to discuss the scripture passages that will be the focus of the following worship on Sunday.  One meets at 7:45 a.m. and one meets at 4:15 p.m.  You are welcome!

Don’t miss the first Abington area Interfaith Multicultural Connection Picnic on Sunday, September 23rd that runs from 1-7 p.m. in Alverthorpe Park at Jenkintown Road and Forrest Avenue. Go for the period of time that you can!

The Fall Youth Retreat will be September 28-30 at Refreshing Mountain Camp.  For info, contact Justin Feil justinfeil4@gmail.com or Katelyn Ciccozzi kciccozzi309@gmail.com

Even though the rain was not invited to Homecoming Sunday last week, it came anyway.  But we had a great team that made adjustments, and helped it to be a joyful, festive day.  Thanks to all who helped with set-up and break down and all that was in-between!

With prayers for all who are impacted by Hurricane Florence.

O.K., all of you followers of Jesus, what have you got to lose?
