SCRIP
Never to early to plan ahead for Christmas giving.  It's easy to budget holiday spending when using scrip.  Purchase scrip cards now to use or give as gifts. We have an updated list of scrip available on the scrip table outside the office. Remember we are ordering scrip the first Tuesday of each month, get your order in now for September.  If you have any questions see Donna or Maggie Vesey.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Update on Prayer Shawl Ministry
We praise God for the time and talent of those who have contributed to our prayer shawl supply over the years.  We also praise God for those who have been touched with the sensitivity of compassion and taken the time to minister to a friend or family member in need of God’s healing presence.  Lastly, we praise God for those who have given a monetary donation in thanksgiving for the Prayer Shawl Ministry.  In the last 5 months, at least 8 prayer shawls have been shared with individuals, providing comfort to those who are suffering with illness, grief or mental health issues of concern.  Thank you for participating in our Prayer Shawl Ministry - I know God cares!

ELECTRONIC GIVING
Throughout the year, many of you already support the congregation with your time, talent and financial contributions but greater participation is always welcome.  We encourage you to look into our electronic giving program.  It takes just a few minutes to set up a recurring giving plan. You can give weekly, bimonthly or monthly.  Fill out a Joyful Response form found on the credenza near the church office or contact Anne in the Church Office (M-F, 9a-4p, at 414-481-0520) if you would like more information. Your contributions are used for everything from special projects to basic operating expenses -both support the ministry of the Word.  As the Lord blesses you, your giving is used to bless others.
