Annual Church Picnic & Rally Day | Sept. 9, 2018

Join us as we celebrate the life and ministry at Good Sam. Festivities will begin after church and we’ll have food, fun & games at the church. We’ll also have a “God’s Work. Our Hands.” activity set up in the Fellowship Hall. See more about our fun GWOH activity in the article below. This will be a fun-filled day of activity and fellowship for all! Council will be providing hot dogs, hamburgers, and the fixings. Please let us know on the sign up in the Fellowship Hall (and/or when passed around during Worship) if you’ll be attending and if you’ll be bringing a side dish to share.  If you have some fun outdoor games like corn hole or ladder/ball toss, please bring them.  All games are welcome!

September 9 is also Rally Day—our Sunday School season kick off. This will be an action-packed, fun-filled day! Following Worship and a light Fellowship, the Jr. High youth will meet with their teachers in Pastor’s office and the Sr. High youth will meet in the Disciples Den at 10:30 A.M.  Children 3 years (and potty-trained) through 6th grade will meet in the Sanctuary at 10:30 A.M.  Parents are encouraged to stay, as we will gather for music before we disburse to classrooms for a short meet & greet with your child’s teacher.

Parents, please be sure to fill out a Sunday School registration form for each of your children so we know of any allergies and how to contact you in case of an emergency.  The forms can be found in the Fellowship Hall on the Sunday School bulletin board and Mary Dickinson will have them on hand as well.  Please touch base with Mary D. if you have questions.

God’s Work. Our Hands. Activity—Building “Kit Cakes” for Carver

During Rally Day & the Church Picnic next Sunday, September 9, we have a fun GWOH activity to create special gifts for the teachers (and students) at Carver Elementary School.  We’ll be making supply “Kit Cakes” to help the teachers defer some costs to supply their students with what they’ll need in the classroom.

To implement this activity, we need your help with donating the following:  dry erase markers, pencils, Elmer’s glue, 24-count crayon boxes, glue sticks, pretty color masking tape, paper towels, index cards, rubber bands, and whatever other school supply you’d like to donate.  So when you’re out collecting supplies for your kids…throw an extra couple supplies in for the Carver kiddos!!  If you don’t have students… we just gave you an excuse to GO SHOPPING!!!  Please bring all donations to church anytime! There’s a collection box in the Narthex. Looking forward to seeing all the creative expression.

Farming 4 Hunger | Gathering at the Farm Sept. 8, 2018

On Saturday, Sept. 8 from 9 A.M. – 12 Noon, we’ll have an all-congregation “God’s Work. Our Hands.” activity as we gather at Farming 4 Hunger—Serenity Farms in Benedict, MD.  This activity gathers our Tri-County ELCA partners–St. Nicholas Lutheran, Huntington MD and Peace Lutheran, Waldorf, MD churches

to harvest, enjoy fellowship and get to know each other and everyone at the Farm.  Come meet our neighbors where they are and make new connections!  Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with our partners.  They’ll be inside and outside tasks to do for all physical levels.  Here are some items you might want to bring along (if you have them) in prep for the harvest:  wear your God’s Work. Our Hands. T-shirts, gloves (for you and kiddos), shovel, spade, hoe, digging fork, water to keep hydrated and a picnic lunch.  Come and join us!  All are fed at the farm.
