Dear God, Thank you for the gift of children. Please watch over them as they head back to school this year. Keep them safe. Help them to remember that you are with them in the halls and classrooms, playgrounds, and school buses. Help them to learn new things this year and to remember the lessons from previous years. Help them treat others with kindness and respect, as you would,  and to guard their hearts with the armor of Your Word. Give them joy and peace as they put their trust in you.  We ask that you are with all the teachers, who every day give of themselves so our children may learn and grow. Be with them and protect them, guide them and give them joy, as they watch over your precious gifts to us, our children.  Amen

Top the Tubs Is Back!
Beginning 19 July, we will be collecting school supplies to provide to students at Alderman Elementary.   The collection tubs will be in the Narthex and in the Fellowship Hall. We are starting this effort now since there are so many good sales going on at Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, Walmart, Target and other stores where for a few pennies you can buy number 2 pencils, colored pencils, glue sticks, composition and spiral notebooks, 3 ring notebooks, erasers, white glue, dry-erase markers, wide-ruled notebook paper, crayons, plain white copy paper, construction paper, Clorox wipes and tissues - all items that the school needs for its students.  These supplies can make a big difference in a child's life.  Thank you for your support.  The Outreach Ministry Team.
Don't forget! There is a board meeting after the 11:00 service this Sunday! The remaining Board Meetings for 2015 are on 10/18 and 12/20.

CACS Needs Your Help!
CACS has been made aware of an individual in need of inexpensive housing - a room to rent, a small apartment, or even a safe place to pitch a tent (but would need a tent donated or loaned).  The individual is currently employed but only has about $350 per month available for living expenses right now. If you know of any one who may be able to help this individual, please contact Chris Furr (910-409-8863) or Ann Boston (910-762-6725).  Thank you for your help.
Change to News and Views Deadline
Starting Monday, July 27, the deadline for articles for the News & Views will be changed to 9am. Please submit all articles to the office in a digital format that is print-ready. If you need help or a refresher course in Microsoft Office, Google Docs, or emailing with attachments, someone will be available to walk you through.  Appointment times for digital help are limited, so please call the office to see what is available.
Throwback Thursday
We have been participating in Throwback Thursday for a little over a month now, over on our Facebook page. Throwback Thursday is the name of a weekly social media posting event that users participate in to share and look back fondly on some of their favorite memories -- hence the "throwback" theme. We have gotten such a great response from our friends! We are currently looking for submissions to our upcoming Throwback Thursday posts! If you have a “vintage” photo featuring past or present members of the church, please email them to the office...or bring them in anytime!
