Upcoming August News & Events
*August 19th-Worship Planning Meeting: All are welcome to our worship planning meeting. We will meet from 1-4 PM. Come help be part of the creative brainstorming for upcoming worship at FGUCC.
*August 20 & 21-Operation School Supplies: Forest Grove School District sponsors a school supply drive every year to collect backpacks and supplies for our needy students. Our goal is to make sure every student has a backpack filled with the appropriate school supplies needed to start the year. We are looking for volunteers to help out at two work parties. The first will be on Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 9 a.m. until noon to organize all of the donations. The second will be on Thursday, Aug. 21 to fill the backpacks and get ready to distribute to the schools. Both work parties will be at our Taylor Way warehouse, 2701 Taylor Way (just down the street from the National Guard Armory). If any of your congregation members are looking for a fun volunteer opportunity, we would appreciate their help. Please have them email me at email@example.com to let me know which days they can help.
*August 24-Africa Presentation: Del and Elaine Bohlmeyer will be presenting a program of their trip to Africa earlier this year. This event will take place on Sunday, August 24th from 2:30-4:30 PM. It will include slide of both their Egypt and the Tanzania Safari. Highlights of the Egypt visit were the pyramids, the sphinx and Mosque of Mohammad Ali in Cairo. A three day river cruise on the Nile took them to the Aswan Dam, several ancient temples and tombs at the Valley of the Kings. In Tanzania they visited four National Parks and Preserves where they saw 30 different species of animals. The program will be presented in the Church Chapel, and afterwards snacks will be served by Jane Romig and Elaine Bohlmeyer in the Fellowship Hall.
