We will be collecting old, worn Bibles for a

Service of Committal in which the Bibles will be buried.

 

This service will be held on Wednesday, October 1st.

 

 


FINANCIAL REPORT

 

Our January - June report, shows our general fund has had expenses exceed receipts by      $ 11,895.  Historically, we seem to keep our general fund in a deficit balance for most of the year but this will be carefully watched so it does not get too large.

 

Our loan for the renovation of the Tullahoma Day Care Center (which has not been part of the general fund) has been paid off.  We had not been raising enough funds to cover the monthly mortgage so the funds were borrowed from the general reserve which we would like to reimburse before the book is closed on the Day Care Renovation.

 

Thank you for your many contributions of time, talents, and funds.

 


 

Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.

 

Please sign with your envelope number so we may get new ones to you.
