1 This Sunday we will share in Holy Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper. What a special time it will be as we do this, “In Remembrance of Christ.” Why don’t you invite a friend?
2 This Sunday, immediately after our worship service, we will take a short break and then have a Jubilee Fellowship meeting where we will update you on the state of this new church. At the end, we will give you an opportunity to sign an Affirmation of Faith statement. Those not present will have two additional weeks to turn in the statement. When our legal work is completed, those signing will be considered Charter Members of Ventura Jubilee Fellowship.
3 We need help with the light cleaning. nCourage, the other church, is being more than fair with us. Later in the week their volunteers come in and do the heavy cleaning. They would like our volunteers to come in on Monday or Tuesday to do light cleaning. Please call Joan at 535-4325 if you can spare a few hours.
4 Something to look forward too — our brand-new choir will sing for the first time, on Sunday, August 13th at our 11:30 service. Pass the word on. They have a GREAT sound.
5 Are you enjoying the cookies during Fellowship time? We’d love to try-out your cookie recipe! Sign up with Anita, in the Café, if you would like to bring cookies! She is also taking names for set-up and take-down.
6 We’re updating our Pictorial Directory. This has been one of the greatest tools in our ministry. It is a wonderful way for us to really get to know each other. If your picture and bio are not in it, and you would like to be, please see Clarence after service in the Reflection’s Room. Also, if you have edits with regards to address/phone. Please let us know.
7 If you want to help Pastor Jim Merillat with his fund raising, “Walk Across Haiti”, the form with the data is on our Information Table. All funds go to help widows in Haiti to learn a trade so they can provide for their children.
8 Women’s Ministry News – I’m happy to say that our Women’s Bible Study will begin the latter part of September. Watch for further word.
9 Memorial Service for Janet Brewer will be held Saturday, August 19th at 10 AM at Ventura Baptist Church. There will be a reception following the service. Delores Barnes could use help in providing the food. Please call her at 644-5009 and find out how you can help. Thank you.
10 Name Tag Ministry – This has always helped us get acquainted with each other. If you ordered a name tag please pick it up and wear it weekly. If you didn’t order one, we hope you will.
For His Glory,
