MEMORIAL STONES – Throughout our series in Joshua, we are asking the entire church to help us build a Memorial of God’s Faithfulness on our property. In order to participate, simply take one of the stones from the pile on the right side of the stage and write a word or phrase on it that reminds you of a time God was faithful to you. Feel free to decorate your stone as much or as little as you would like. When you are finished, return your stone to the base of the pile on the stage and we will add it to our memorial. Thank you for your involvement in this churchwide project! Soli Deo Gloria!

This ministry tool is a great way to get the information out to all who may be able to help in times of need for meals, as it sends notifications through email to recipients on the list. Signing up does not mean you have to prepare a meal every time; there is no obligation.
By signing up, you will be able to view the needs and select the meal you wish to provide, as you will have access to the times and dates meals are needed. Being included on the list gives you opportunities to sign up to help where and when you are able. We appreciate the volunteers who have been participating already!
THANK YOU! If you have questions, you may check out the Meal Trian website to see how it works at www.mealtrain.com. If you would like to add your name and email to the contact list for the Meal Train, or for any further questions, please contact the Church Office.
