MANTEO ELEMENTARY STUDENTS NEED SUPPLIES!
We are collecting school supplies for Manteo Elementary School.
There is a list of the many items required in the back of the church and also downstairs..you can't go wrong buying anything really.  Please help as much as you are able, and be
assured that all items will be appreciated. You may also
make a contribution toward the purchase of items if you wish.
Leave supplies in the back of the church. Cher and Gary will pick them up weekly. This goes on all of July and ending
 by August 6th....to prepare for delivery to the school.
thank you!

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
(Harold Gracey) 
Dear Fellow Members,
 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank many of you who serve in multiple capacities especially over the summer.  There are many opportunities through VBS and the addition of the second service to show the love of Christ in all that we do and to serve our community. 
As your Church Council, we also prepare for the future.  When we prepared the budget the for 2017 we include a monthly allocation to our Equipment Replacement Fund which are funds set aside to handle large repairs that we know will occur over time.  For the exterior of the church the time is now.  I am sure that many of you have noticed that the wear and tear on the exterior of the church and that to protect the siding from further damage we need to have it repainted.  The property committee along with the Church Council have reviewed several bids from qualified painters and made a decision to select one.  As we mentioned, we do have some funds put aside to cover major items, but the cost to repaint the church is approximately $13,000.00 and that will significantly drain that Equipment Replacement Fund.
 
Stewardship is about each individual's response to God's love, not about meeting a specific need.  God, as the Creator, is the Author and Owner of everything.  God has blessed each of us in various ways and guides us as to how we should use the time, talent and treasure He has provided each of us; therefore, the Church Council has decided that we will not have a specific drive to fund the church painting. However, if you are moved to make a special gift to help defray the cost of this project or replenishing the Fund, please feel free to do so by notating the Equipment Replacement Fund on your gift and placing it in the offering plate. It will then be used to help cover the cost of the painting.
Thank you for your continued support as together we work to share Christ with those in our community.
 
Prayerfully,
Harold Gracey

2 Timothy 1:7
"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but  spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."
GRACE LUTHERAN'S
ANNUAL
FISH FRY
AUGUST 18
There are sign up sheets
upstairs, and downstairs
in the Fellowship Hall
for YOU to sign up to
help during this year's
FISH FRY

 
Remember, the funds raised
at the Fish Fry go back
into our community. They
are not used at all by
our church.

 
We are able to pass along the
blessing given to us by
the community to those
groups or organizations
who spread the gift even further.

 
Please plan to help out now,
it is lots of fun and it is
only for 2 hours...bring your
friends and neighbors as well
as your family for a delicious
fishy fiesta!
P.S.
There may be something very
very special about
this year's FF. Stay tuned.
