KNITTERS AND CROCHETERS
The Knitters and Cocheters will resume weekly get-togethers on Tuesday, September 2nd, 1:30-3:00 p.m. @ Colonial Park in the Annex. We welcome any newcomers to the group regardless if you are a beginner or an “old hand” at it. We have loads of donated yarn and extra knitting needles or crochet hooks. We could sure use more workers. It’s fun and fellowship! For more information please call Nancy Kimmel at 545-9302 or Martha Scott at 545-8879.

Hi Exercise Enthusiasts!!! Well the kids are back in school, it’s getting darker earlier in the evening and there’s a “nip” in the air. Do you know what that means?? It’s aerobic time again!! Our low impact aerobic class will be starting on Tuesday, September 9th and run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30–7:30 p.m. (through December 18th). The class is held @ Colonial Park in Brown Hall, the cost is $2.00 per class and it’s pay as you go. All money collected will be donated to worthy causes that are decided upon by the class. To participate you will need a signed consent (that will be available upon arrival) towel/mat, comfortable clothing & shoes, water and hand weights (which are optional). Come prepared to have a good time with fellow sisters in Christ (although men are welcome!) as we exercise for 50 minutes and have fellowship & prayer time for the last 10 minutes. Any questions you may have can be directed to Karin Shipe at 657-7694 or email@example.com. We would love to have you join us!

LifeGroups display at STEAK OUT – Step 2 of LifePoints (our Discipleship Plan) is to commit to a LifeGroup. Why?

Come and join the fun after dinner in Kids’Quest @Colonial Park. Plus, find out about our exciting mission project for October and November.
Parents at STEAK OUT—“Think Orange” means there is an amazing amount of help for parents to be their child’s spiritual leader! It is most stimulating, and we want to introduce you to all of the opportunities that go along with your child being in Kids’Quest!
Mission Groups at STEAK OUT—Many of the mission projects and groups will have a display. This is a great way to see where you may want to become involved, put extra money, or just be an informed CrossPointer.
Classes at STEAK OUT—LifePoint Classes, as well as Sunday morning classes @ Colonial Park will be represented in the tour after dinner.
Music Opportunities at STEAK OUT—What is available? Where can I be trained or fit in? Come find out!
