Rock Pot Creations on Raffle
As Many of you may know, Dr. Julius Berkenkamp was a wonderful mentor and long time friend to many members of our church. In 1967 “the Old Man Berkenkammp and his wife” built the home on the corner of 7th & Grace, adjacent from the old church on Grace Ave. From the building of this home, Berkenkamp began a ministry through creating rock-mosaic pottery from stones he hand picked and polished. Countless orphans and suffering people benefited from the money he received from his creations. Not a single penny he kept. In memory of our history, we will be raffling off some of his beautiful art work. If you have a pot you would like to donate please bring it to the church office. For those of you who would like one of these precious creations they will be on raffle starting this Sunday in the Fellowship. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 tickets for $5.00. The money from this fundraiser will benefit Zion’s Mission Program.
Begins Wednesday, September 3rd at 6:15pm. I’m SO excited about the choir! We have some great fun songs lined up. Our first performance is on Sept. 14th! I look forward to seeing you all there!
The chancel choir will begin rehearsal on Wednesday, September 3rd at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. The choir is scheduled to sing on Sunday, September 14th and Nancy is asking that ALL members, past, present and future, please come to this practice!
