Kim's testifies in when Jesus says yes. Nobody can't say no, right? I think that's an awesome song because it testified to everything that's going on in our lives right now because things happen and bad things happen, but then when you trust in God, you know that he's going to deliver and I love the song. So good morning. Are y'all doing today? Good, I'm before you guys to do the announcements. And so we wanted to do a couple of house cleaning things just to let you know what's going on in our church. So the first thing that I want to talk about is Bible Study Bible study happens on Tuesday nights in Morgan Hill at the church office. We have an awesome time. We're talking about James were talking about trials and tribulations or talking about standing firm with God and then we also have snacks and food. That's alright encourage all of you guys to come out to Bible study so that we can all fellowship and one of the things that I love about Bible study is that you can ask a million questions. We have amazing discussions. You can just dive deeper in the word. So I encourage all of you guys to come out on Tuesday nights at 7 sharp and it's only like an hour and a half. So you're not missing that much out of your night and it's a really great time. And then also in September we're going to have a back-to-school weekend for all the kids.
I was looking for my mama, but she's not here. So on September 10th, we're going to have a school supply giveaway. We know that it's important for our kids to have an education and it's important that they're prepare for school. And so we want to help out with the community and provide school supplies so that your kids can begin to start the school year off right and get A's and B's and eventually go on to college and things.
And so then the following day on September 11th, we're going to have a kids day at church. And so that's more to come. My mom says to kill me when she gets here. If you see her after service, you can talk to her if you want to get involved with that if you want to participate in any way, I know that she has a sign-up list of things I need to be done. And so please invite your family and friends and after church, we will Point her out so that you can get involved with that. And then also the following week after that we got big things going on in September. So after that, we have the UCF friends and family National back to church today. And so that's going to be on September 18th. That's all we're looking for people who want to be involved in that and so that we can have this national day be a success and so we're hoping that all of you guys can come out on this day so that we can Fellowship. And then how many you guys like ribs and barbecue and potato salad macaroni and cheese? Okay. So we're going to have a fundraiser. What we're trying to do is we're trying to raise money for a new church building and so one of the first but yeah.

So before we move on to the connection cards, I'm going to have my mom sister Campbell come up and talk about the back to school night. Are the back-to-school weekend the children's weekend?
I thank God for all the professionals that we have in our congregation right away past teacher Financial experts nurses. So we have just about anything that you need in this church. So if you need help with anything, just let us honor. Oh, yeah, that's me.
My mama bragging on me now, but we have a lot of we want to know what your talents are so that we can begin to serve the community. And so if you guys have any talents that you wish to help tide with cuz it's not always about money. I think we're ever going to talk about that scene. I don't hear but it's also about what your talents are as well. And so if you have any talents that you want to give to the church, just let us any one of the leadership know so does everybody have a program?
Does everybody have a pen? Okay, Joel bring a pan to.
Okay, so in the program we have the connection cards and the connection cards. This is how we stay connected to you. So if everyone can take a minute and fill out the friend of the connection card this with your name your address your phone number we want to do a lot of things in the coming years in the church. And so we really want to stay connected with you. We wanted to
Call you we want to check on you. We want to send birthday celebrations Mary celebrations. We want to do all these things for you. And so the one of the ways that we can do this as if you fill out your connection card and turn. It's also on the connection tires in also said whether or not you're a first-time visitor at member or leader. And so if you can check that off as well.
And then on the back of the connection card. On the back of the connection card is one of the most important reasons why we had this instead of pray for you. If so, if you have any prayer requests, you can also put that on the back of the card as well.
The pastor also has mixed up and so that's something you can fill out as he's going through his message today. And then also if you're interested in any more information or anything like that. You just take this minute to fill out your connection card would be greatly appreciated.
Every single member here is El Gato connection card because it's Italia stay connected. And so it's our joy to pressure you is confidential because he was the only people who see this.
Here at UCF. We feel like prayer matters and it changes things. So you'll get another opportunity during service to fill out your connection card. When I breathe comes around you can put it in.
