As we approach the ending of summer, some of our thoughts turn to school, with all that entails. We want to get our youth off to a proper start for the new school year, so, during the 9:00 am worship on Sunday, August 28, we will invite all of our students, from pre-school through college, to come forward with their book bags for a BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS. We will send them off to school with prayer! The 50 youngest participants will receive a gift bag.

INFORMATION FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF MUSIC: Rehearsals for all ensembles begin Wednesday, September 7th. Regular scheduled rehearsals WILL be on THURSDAYS (with the exception of Thursday, September 8th rehearsal moved to Wednesday, September 7th due to my “Meet the Teacher” night at school).
If you took a break from music and are ready to come back, if you have never rung a bell or sung in a choir before, or if you have been part of the music ministry here for years; I look forward to glorifying God’s name with you.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at home: jenniferkishbaugh@gmail.com (subject heading: FELC Music) or at 610-451-8660 (cell/text).

There is a Flamingo poster on the Sunday School bulletin board in the hallway. We are looking for people to post sightings of LIVE Flamingos that you see during the summer. So far, I haven't seen any postings. Can you help us out? Send me an e-mail and I can post that! There are two posts on the board so far!'
