ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5, 2018
11th SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
WELCOME To Dr. Rob Pemberton, Dentist at Dr. Stump’s office in Petoskey. Rob is our musician through August.
WE WOULD LIKE to welcome Pastor Sherry back from Colorado where she went out to perform the wedding of Emily Smith and Greg Vigneaux. Please keep Emily and her husband in your prayers that they have a long, happy, marriage.
NOISY OFFERING this month will be going to the Clean Water Projects..This month we will be supporting the clean water projects in Flint, Michigan. The water is still unclean and unsafe to drink in most of the communities hit the strongest by this disaster. The poorest of the community continue to suffer physical and mental afflictions and continue to have to pay for water that is not drinkable. Salem Lutheran Church in Flint continues to deliver and invite people to pick up as much water as they need…and this is bottled water, rain barrels and filters. Please remember Clean water as we struggle here in the Great Lakes to keep fresh water and clean water even with all of the dumping going into the lakes and the removal of water for bottled water products.
ALTAR FLOWERS this morning are placed by Boyd Manges and JoAnn Wilder in celebration of the August 8th birthday of Kirstin. God’s blessings to you on your special day.
BULLETINS this month are given by Tricia Rodgers in loving memory of her JaJa on what would be his 100th birthday.
Dedications for both the bulletins and the flowers are found at SIGN UP CENTRAL in the green notebook. $10 for flowers and $10 for bulletin dedications. Each week our flowers are donated to Flowers for Friends to be distributed throughout the community.

We have served by picking up trash along the lake shore and rivers, and we also serve at the Women’s Resource Center. We work at the Gold Mine North shop where we clean, separate, price, help to organize, paint and other things to help out WRC who also helps the community. Gail Kloss is the Executive Director at the WRC and continues to make things better for our community by offering a safe place for those in situations that are harmful, unsafe, and abusive. But the WRC has a lot of other services too: 100 men campaign, day care, programs against abuse and for healthy relationships, and many more.
