Weekly News 9/28/11

Good Afternoon to everyone on THE LIST for the SBA.
You are appreciated in all that you do in your various churches.  I want to thank our Pastors, Clerks and designated Annual Church Profile folks as I know you are all trying to get the report in really soon.  After the  Weekly News gets out I will check in on the progress.  If you are going to want me to enter your information please let me know so I know to expect it.  The deadline is this Saturday but Monday will work too.

Dave and Waunita Kanton (Sixth Street, Gold Beach) are retiring as of the 1st of October
You are invited to a celebration of their service and faithfulness to the Lord and the churches they have served over the years.
A catered dinner will be on October 21, 2011 at 7:00 PM. It will be at the Fairgrounds in the Showcase Building.
It is so important that they get a head count due to it being catered.  If you would please let Carolyn or John Dawson know as
soon as possible if you intend on being there.  1-541-247-6298 is Carolyn's number.  Or E-mail at: jcdawson4@frontier.com

If you would like to go but need a ride call me and we'll see if that can be made available.  If anyone is going and will have room for others let me know.
Thank you for your help with this.

Each church will have a separate page.  All pertinent info will be on the front of the page and you may put what you would like on the back, i.e. other staff (paid or volunteer), special studies (parenting, divorce, grief), your church history, photos of fun events, etc.
Would someone from Trinity let me know who would be a good person to send theirs to?

Please be in prayer for a treasurer for SBA for the next year(s).   If you know of someone who is familiar with the job of treasurer/bookkeeping please let someone on the Admin Team know.   I do most of the work  so this person would be an overseer and report to the SBA meetings.  This person needs to be an active member of a cooperating church.  This person would be a signer on the SBA account as part of the position.  Any other questions contact Larry Brons at 541-226-6467 he can tell you what is really involved.

Feel free to copy the prayer requests below to give to your folks for their corporate and personnel prayer times. 

We are on Face Book, we also have a prayer request group.  It is a closed group so it only goes to those who want to be on it.  If you are on Face Book, friend me (Nancy Goss) and tell me you want to be on the Prayer request group.  It will come up on your page when there is a request or answer or comments.
Prayer Needs:  Let me know if your church has a prayer concern it will be posted here.
