Fellowship Hall Reservations and Reminders
Church Closings/Inclement Weather - If church services are cancelled due to weather, closing information will be running on WFMY-TV 2, Greensboro and WGHP Fox 8 and WXII-TV 12 as soon as the decision can be made. As always, use your judgment and stay safe. Everyone's safety is a major concern.
General Reminders - Please be sure the faucets are turned off and the commode has filled and stopped running before you leave the restroom. Also, there are several doors, depending on the weather, that need to be pushed closed as you leave. Please take time to notice that you have left the building secure.
DVD's of the Services - John Whitten made DVD's of our services from February 3, 2008 to May 27, 2012. Copies of the recorded services are available in the office. The DVD's are numbered. You may check out one to watch and then return it to the office for someone else in a timely manner. There is a sign-out sheet with the DVD's for your name, date signed out and the number of the DVD. Please sign it back in when returned.
Bulletin Board - Don't forget to check the bulletin boards in the hallway. There are sign-up sheets for various opportunities, cards/letters sent to the church family, invitations to events at other churches or in the community, and notices concerning community or state events. You can also find newspaper clippings concerning church members. Church address/phone directories, extra Mature Living (July available now), Our Daily Bread (July-August-September available now), Open Windows (June-July-August available now), Gideon cards, calendars, and other pickup items are kept on the table below the board by the office. Also, check for any items you might have lost either on the table below the bulletin board or on the table in the office lobby.
Please Assist the Office with the Prayer Lists - If you put someone on the list, we need regular updates and for you to let us know when we may remove the name as they improve. Just leave a note in the office or call. We always want to respect your need for prayer for yourself, a member, friend or relative, but we also want to make room for someone else who has become ill or is undergoing surgery or treatments. Thank you for your assistance and understanding - Patsy.
Announcements - If you have any announcements for Sunday morning, please get them to the office by 10:00 AM on Friday mornings to be printed in the bulletin. We want our morning worship service to be a time of prayer, praise and worship with each person responsible for reading the bulletin for announcements.
Nursery Reminders -The nursery is asking that no children over 5 be taken to the nursery. On Sunday mornings, ages 6 and up go to Children's Church and at other times should be in the services. On Wednesday nights, there are children's missions groups.
