Support Andy and Emily Eatough in their work with Wycliffe Bible Translators

Andy grew up here in the church, we are so proud of him as he has spent so much of his life with Wycliffe in faithful service.  Andy and Emily are in a budget shortfall and are reaching out to those interested in supporting their work.  Currently they are serving state-side doing language instruction at the Graduate Institute of Linguistics in Dallas. I am placing 5 packets of information about their work on the Narthex table, along with envelopes should you choose to partner with them.  If you cannot at this time please peruse the information but then replace it so others can use it to donate support.  I know time and time again those in world-wide ministry have been blessed by the generous spirit of our congregation!

Congregational Meeting regarding Ark Rental possibilities on August 27 after Worship

This Sunday after worship we will hold a special congregational meeting to consider taking the next steps of looking into the possibility of renting out space in the Ark building to raise additional funds for our church and its ministries.

We will be asking for permission from the congregation to actively pursue a rental arrangement and come back with a contract for congregational approval in the near future.  We will also detail the up-front costs we may incur before any actual rent is realized.  We also need to discuss how to maintain our staffing levels with Victoria as our Pastor for Children and Youth.  Currently our budget line and special appeal giving from last year will pay her salary through November 2.

I hope you can make time to come to this important meeting!  We sense the Spirit’s movement as we take practical steps to live into our action plan as well as provide the needed funds to maintain our beautiful campus.

Tentative Special Workshops on Aging in January

Pastors Steve and Hans-Erik are working on hosting a two-Sunday series on An Inside Look at Aging, tentatively scheduled during the worship hour on January 14 and 21, 2018.  This will be a valuable workshop for all, including those who are feeling the effects of aging for themselves, for adult children contemplating care decisions for their parents, and for churches to create and sustain effective ministry to Seniors. This is also a series that may attract our neighbors with helpful and insightful information.  Mark your calendars!

Pastor Hans-Erik to take Sabbatical Leave in October and November

As part of Hans-Erik’s call the church has graciously offered a two-month sabbatical leave after six years of service.  Hans-Erik will use the time to rest, restore, read, work with his hands, and spend time with family.  The goal is to come back renewed, revitalized, and full of energy, life and vision for ministry.  Thank you Foothill!  Pastor Victoria will preach seven of the nine Sundays Hans-Erik is away, with one other Sunday filled by a to-be-determined supply preacher on October 8 and by Steve Wong as we worship jointly at Grace on November 12.
