Cookie Time

It is cookie time for our back to school personnel and our area first responders.

Cookies for CougarsWe are in need of 200 dozen cookies this year.  These may be made ahead of time and frozen to be turned in to the church office by Monday, August 17th by 12 noon.  Karen Holder is in need of volunteers to help pack the cookies on Tuesday, August 18th at 10:30 am.  Cookie delivery will be Wednesday, August 19th and volunteers will be needed to deliver as well.  Please respond to Karen Holder’s email address (below) to volunteer for any of these jobs.  If you wish to bake cookies give Karen an exact number of dozen you wish to make so she can keep an accurate count.  This is an especially important mission this year for these folks.  During this time of illness they are under an extreme amount of pressure and a couple of cookies with a heartfelt message could make all the difference in their day.

The cookie project is in need of 17 dozen more cookies.  If you have not yet signed on to make cookies and would like to, please consider making some for our school personnel and first responders. 

All cookies are due at the church by noon on Monday, August 17.  Packing volunteers are needed at 10:30 on Tuesday, August 18, and the cookies will be delivered on Wednesday, August 19.  

Thank you,
Karen Holder

Celebrating Holy Communion

Celebrating Holy Communion

This Sunday July 5th, we will not be gathering for in person worship but instead will be live-streaming both our 8:30 and 11:00 am worship services. As this is the first Sunday of the month, we will once again celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion together – virtually. We will share in the liturgy of Holy Communion as we prepare our hearts and minds for this Holy meal. 

Please have some bread and grape juice available for worship or whatever you can gather remembering that Jesus used common items that were a part of the Seder meal when he instituted this sacramental meal.

On Sunday morning, after the the elements have been blessed, we will then serve one another in our various locations. Please help me spread the word to have bread and juice with you when you tune in on Sunday.

As is our tradition, this Sunday, we will have a special “Communion Offering” which this month goes to support The Methodist Children’s Home. As you probably know, this local ministry which was founded in 1890 serves children and youth through residential programs on the Waco campus and MCH Boys Ranch and through transition services, foster care and a variety of community based programs throughout Texas and New Mexico.

You can give online or send a check to the church office with “Methodist Children’s Home” or “MCH” written in the memo section.

Blessings of safety and well being to you all!
