Shelter Hosts Needed – Pines is up and running as a “home away from home” for Harvey Relief workers.. Every night for the next several weeks we will be opening our Family Life Center to volunteers who are here to help Houston and surrounding areas recover from Harvey. We need Pines folks to serve as Overnight Hosts to make sure that our visitors are comfortable, safe and welcomed. Each day the shift runs from 7 pm Overnight until approximately 7 am. All the information, contact phone numbers and guidelines that you will need are provided for you, so all that you will have to do is make our visitors feel at home. If you are interested in being a Host for the last week in September and beyond, please contact Melissa Sandstrom.  

“Creating the Covenant” is a NEW BIBLE STUDY coming to Pines this Fall.  The program is a 24 week study, broken into three 8 week segments, each exploring a different aspect of Covenant Life: Creating the Covenant, Living the Covenant, Trusting the Covenant.  Beginning at the end of September, you can be a part of a Thursday morning or Sunday evening group.  Sign-ups are underway!

REAL Time is the name of the worship gathering that is meeting at a coffee shop (Fellini’s) in CityCentre on a monthly basis. All are welcome as we gather next Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00 PM! Bring a friend! It’s a great time to be in our community and to have a time of worship mid-week.

Wednesday Bible Study will begin on September 20 at 10:00AM in the Parlor with the DVD series, “Dare to Dream.”

All children ages 4 through 5th grade are invited to be part of Sundae Sundays beginning September 24th and running through November 12th. This program coincides with the 1st 8 weeks of “Creating the Covenant”. Please contact Valerie Mowell for more information and pick up a flyer in the Narthex or in the Children’s wing. We will also offer childcare for children 3 years old and younger.
