Homewood Auxiliary: The Membership Drive for this year’s Homewood Auxiliary at Plum Creek is happening now. To join the Auxiliary, please see Sharon Dull.
Stewardship Sunday Celebration: On Sunday, November 3rd, we will be celebrating our Stewardship Sunday. This year’s theme is “I am the Way” and takes shape from the passage in John 14:6 when Jesus says to Thomas, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to God except through me.” Mark November 3rd on your calendar and come join us as we celebrate our different giving programs throughout the year.
Baust Literary Society: The book selection for October is The Killing Floor by Lee Child. Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, GA where in less than an hour he’s arrested for murder (not much of a welcome). All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody, at least not here, not lately, but he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, GA, not a chance in Hell. Some novelists can write not-notch action and some can create compelling mysteries, but it’s rare to find both skills in a single book.
Caring Carroll 3rd Annual Bingo Bonanza: This annual event will be held on Saturday, October 5th, at the New Windsor Firemen Social Hall located at 101 High St., New Windsor, MD. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the games begin at 7:00 p.m. See flyers available at both church entrances for more info.
The Prayer Chain: The Prayer Chain has been reactivated. If you have someone who needs prayers, please email Jane Rodkey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-984-0648.
EBUCC Facebook Page: Check out the church’s newly updated Facebook page. Beth Raver does a fantastic job running and updating the page, so refer to it often. You never know whose picture you may see! Beth is requesting that if any of you are taking pictures that would be nice for the FB page, please send them to her.
Taneytown Caring and Sharing Food Bank: Each church participating in Taneytown Caring and Sharing has been asked to donate certain food/necessity items for each month. EBUCC has been asked for donations of stuffing, hamburger helper, and instant rice during the month of October. There is a box located in the Good Shepherd Room for collecting these items. Please note that they can always use tuna fish, peanut butter and jelly, or any kind of cereal if you would prefer to donate those items. Jane Rodkey will take EBUCC’s collection to the Food Bank at the end of each month.
Altar Flowers for 2019: Would you like to honor, celebrate, or remember someone or something which is important to you or to our church family? Order forms for the 2019 placement of flowers on the altar or the piano are available at each church entrance. The forms show reserved and remaining dates to reserve altar flowers. We will take care of ordering fresh bouquets from The Cutting Garden for $40 (cash or check payable to “EBUCC”) or you may supply and deliver your own flowers. Only 6 dates remain open for the rest of the year! Once you have completed your information, please give or mail the form to Susan Hardinger.
Please see Bob Miller if you would like to serve as a liturgist or acolyte. Pastor Jeff encourages both youth and adults to volunteer as liturgist.
Prayer Shawls: Kathy Dull and the Sewing Club have been making prayer shawls that are blessed and then given out to those in need of prayer. If you would like to help Kathy and the rest of the Sewing Club to create more prayer shawls see Kathy Dull or Pastor Jeffry Dull.
ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE BULLETIN ARE DUE TO HELEN MILLER BY 9 AM EACH THURSDAY.
