Announcements of Coming Church Activities

Call to Give:
Our church will participate in the 2018 HURRICANE FLORENCE RELIEF through the Presbyterian
Disaster Assistance Fund. If you would like to help in this effort, please make your special donation out to
the First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro and note in the memo "Hurricane Florence Relief" by
September 30, 2018. We thank you for your generosity and your prayers for all those who are in the midst
of this disaster.

Fellowship Sunday School Class for September:

 “Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people, and your God my God.”  Do you recognize these words? They may even have been part of your wedding ceremony. They are from the Old Testament book, Ruth, one of the best-loved books of the Bible and the subject of the upcoming study of the Fellowship Sunday School Class. 
We begin our study with Dr Sandra Richter this Sunday, September 2, at 9:45, in the Fellowship Hall. If you are new to Old Testament studies this is for you! In her introduction to the DVD, Dr. Richter says, “This study is targeted at the newcomer, the seeker, the person who may not be churched or have any previous exposure to the Bible, but is looking for a safe place to explore faith in the God of the Bible.” Come explore with us. 
Susie Pressley - Teacher.
 
MEN OF THE CHURCH: The Men of the Church will meet on Tuesday, September 25th, at 11:30 a.m. at
the Yesterday Cafe for lunch and fellowship. Duane Blough is this month’s host.
 
A NEW ACCESSORY! Next week, we will officially begin wearing name tags so that we can all easily
identify one another! It may not be your favorite thing to wear, but it will help all of us, especially our pastor.
Please put on a name tag when you come in, and leave it on the table in the entryway when you leave.
Thank you!

girls, the ribbon ends need to be burned to stop fraying and the ribbons need to be
added to already made dresses. This is easy work and does NOT require sewing!

Let us remember our family members:
Each week we offer special prayer requests for certain individuals, and that will continue. This week, we
continue our intentional prayer for members of the church. There may be nothing pressing in their lives
that we know of, but let’s take the time to pray, intentionally, for one another.
