Dear Members and Friends,
Some folks don’t know that we are back at LIVE WORSHIP ON SUNDAYS! Make sure to spread the good news that we are able to gather, hear the word, rejoice in our response and sing and give praise to God. Here we still lift up our friends and neighbors who are in need… in prayer. During the coming summer, we will have half-an-hour worship at 8:00 AM. Later, at 10:00 AM, we will begin gathering around song and celebration as we worship LIVE… but also online. Please come and join us and give thanks to God whose love is everlasting!
Although June 21st marks the beginning of Summer, we all know that the 4th of July weekend is the official opening of the South Jersey Shore! Our most important Special Event is Summer Fest (Saturday, July 3rd, from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM). While it is a HUGE fundraiser for our church, it also generates a sense of community for us, our neighbors, and our summer visitors. Summer Fest is our house of faith doing its part as good neighbors to show visitors what a great year-round community we enjoy here! So please come out and join the festivities, even if it's just for a short time.
Come shop at the Thrift Shop special rooms and see what a great job Rose Haefele and her volunteers are doing. Come to Fellowship Hall and admire Karen Mayer’s special baskets, (Who knows? Buy as many tickets as Deb Enderlin does and maybe you’ll win!). Check out Bill and Pam Schneider for God-burgers and Devil-dogs… and please make sure to get a hot/sweet sausage on an AC roll! Thanks to Dorie Herndon, we’ve already gotten halfway to our goal thanks to our “sponsors”! Let's all come out and celebrate our return to “community”!
Member Care Committee chairperson Jim Walker needs volunteers to help provide transportation to folks who are seeking medical treatment. If you are able and can lend a hand (and the time), please give Jim a call (609-338-2252) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us LIVE on Sunday Mornings at 8:00 AM and/or 10:00 AM for singing, and 10:15 AM for worship. Use this link www.facebook.com/brigchurch.org. If you haven’t joined us for “virtual worship”, give me a call - you need to join us! The CHURCH WEBSITE is www.brigchurch.org. My email is email@example.com. My cell phone is (609) 457-2999.
