VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO MOW THE CHURCH LAWN
Volunteers are needed to mow the church lawn during the month of August. Sign up is for one month at a time and the church owns a lawn mower. If you cannot commit to a full month, but would still like to serve in this capacity, please consider sharing a month with another person. We also have an individual who has volunteered to mow on an on-call basis. If you would be interested in volunteering for this ministry, a sign up sheet is available in the foyer.

MEN’S “MEATING”
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. -- Proverbs 27:17

This group is geared towards growing the “younger” (18—50ish) men of CBC and are committed to the growth and prosperity of God’s church and His body of believers. They “meat” one Saturday a month to strengthen relationships with each other, their commitment to God, the future of CBC and to enjoy charred meat! For more information, contact Justin Amos (785-656-3036).

 

SMALL BLESSINGS MINISTRY
If anyone in the church body has a friend, a neighbor or acquaintance whom they know of, who is expecting, we would love to put together a care package with a Jesus Bible story book, baby items and church info. If this person/persons are within Dickinson County, we could set up a FoodTidings meal schedule at the time of delivery. We need to network and get the word out there to make contact with our community, and grow together. Thank you to everyone that has show support for this ministry!

BEVERAGES IN THE SANCTUARY
If you bring a beverage—coffee, water, tea, etc. — into the Sanctuary before Sunday morning worship, or if you bring it to a special evening event, please make sure that you dispose of the liquid and the cup properly after the event is over. Please do not leave cups, either empty or full, on the floor of the Sanctuary. Help us keep the Sanctuary clean!

 

LOST AND FOUND
Several items have been left in the Sanctuary and are missing their owners! In the past, the items were placed on the table in the foyer of the Sanctuary for people to claim, However, because of space issues, they have been moved to the area outside the Sanctuary containing the mail slots. Please stop by and claim your items! If too much time passes and they are not claimed, the items will be disposed of or donated.
