Christian Ed Meetings
There will be Christian Education meetings after the service today, Aug 13th, to discuss Christian Education at STOC. Due to declining interest and attendance Christian education for our children is in danger of being eliminated. All parents of kids under 18 should plan to attend, as well as anyone interested in teaching or taking part in this ministry. This is a time to voice how you envision Christian Education for the kids of STOC. Please contact Scott or Donna Celsor if you have any questions

CALLING ALL ACOLYTES
Believe it or not, summer is almost over. It is time to gather those who are interested in serving at the Sunday service, review the roles and responsibilities of the acolyte and set up regular serving schedules.
Father Mark and Deacon Marge have prepared an Acolyte Manual and will distribute it today, August 13th, to all who are interested in this ministry.
On Sunday, August 20th after the 9:00 service and on Sunday, September 17th after the 10:00 service, we will have practice sessions. These are mandatory.
“Acolyte means an attendant and … his/her job is to assist the celebrant and deacon and enhance the worship service to help glorify God.” (from the Acolyte Manual) Prayerfully consider if you want to make a commitment to the acolyte program and let Father Mark or Deacon Marge know if you are planning on attending the meetings. Peace.
