Oktoberfest Sign Up Sheets are in the Narthex. There is something for everyone. If you don't want to be in the crowds, we have a kitchen job that would keep you inside. If you need a sit down job, Ticket Booths and Kids Area could use your help. The Food Booth is going to need a lot of volunteers. The Beer Booth is fast paced and is always a fun time. Take a moment to sign up as we cannot to Oktoberfest without you.
Fanfare Donations needed! Kelsey is in need of old newspaper, old magazines, and aluminum foil if anyone has these items laying around. She plans to use these for her art class.

Wednesday Evening Worship Starting on Wednesday, September 15, a midweek worship service with Holy Communion will be offered in the sanctuary.

Worship Safely In Person – Sundays 10:00 am
You are encouraged to join in worship either safely in person or virtually every Sunday.
The Church Council reviewed the COVID-19 numbers for Galveston and Galveston County and re-issued the requirement of wearing masks in the church buildings. This change reflects that we are in the midst of a severe spike in the pandemic and that our local medical systems are stressed by the current surge. Please be mindful of the most vulnerable in our midst, as children under the age of 12 are not eligible for the vaccine at this time.
