Campbell UMC-Mail for July 30, 2008
Worship for August 3rd.
This Sunday Andy will be talking about a favorite activity of Methodists – EATING! The title of his sermon is “Table Talk” and the scripture lesson is from Matthew 14:13-21. Come join us on Sunday in worship and as we celebrate Communion at Christ’s Table.
Andy is now posting his Pastor’s Notes to the CamBlog. You can find this week’s immediately following this C-mail update; just scroll down when you reach the end. Note that anything posted by Andy will be shown as being posted by “randrew.”
Don’t forget to take a look at Reverend Andy’s personal blog. You can find a link to it in the “Our Links” section of the CamBlog. Reading these will let you know about Andy Bryan the person.
What’s New around Campbell?
We welcomed two new members on Sunday, both transferred membership from Methodist churches in Florida (not the same one, though). Welcome Sharon Farmer and Michelle Doel to the congregation next time you see them.
Michelle’s son, Ryan, was baptized into the church on Sunday.
Signups for the Photo Directory will be done via computer this year – there will be no further paper signups. Instructions are on the website in the “Helpful Documents” section. If you don’t have your own computer, we’ve set up a computer kiosk (one of Melissa’s favorite words) in the Hospitality Room that’s available all week, including Sunday. You can sign up anytime you are visiting the church or at home using your own computer.
What’s New on the Website?
We’ve put a link to the Owen Mills website so that you can sign up to have your family’s picture taken for the photo directory. It’s easy to complete the signup process and you can see the available dates and times and select one that’s just right for your family. If you have an email address you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder email a few days before your appointment. Olan Mills will also call with a reminder of your scheduled appointment. If you need to make changes to your appointment, this can be done on-line also. Each family that has a photo taken will receive a Campbell UMC Pictorial Directory and an 8×10 color portrait; both are free!
Some of the documents that are scattered across several pages have been consolidated under a “Helpful Information” page. Here you will find items such as the Gift Card list, instructions on how to sign up for the pictorial directory, information on alternative ways to give your offering each week, and so on. By putting these items in one place we felt it would reduce the searching that you have to do to find something.
Speaking of searching – have you used the search box that is located under the church name? If you enter a word or phrase in this box and click on “Search” you will see a list of every item that contains the word (or phrase). These are listed by date so you may find search around a bit within the items displayed to find exactly what you are looking for. Try it by searching for “Gift Card” and then “Gift Card Program;” you’ll get slightly different results. This is a handy way to find something you may have missed!
