What do Sports Car racing, cheerleading, political gathering, and the beginning of the church’s program year have in common?  They all have rallies!  And rallies are active gatherings! Whether it is seeing who has the fastest car on the track (sports car rally) or pumping up sports fans (pep rally) or getting people excited about a candidate (political rally), rallies get you to do things.

NEXT Sunday is Rally Day! Although long term members may think of Rally Day as the beginning of Christian Education (“Sunday School”) for the church program year, in recent years Rally Day has been our opportunity to do volunteer work together as a team!

The ELCA calls this effort “God’s Work, Our Hands” and majority of the ELCA churches do this work on this day: This year, September 10th is God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday and Rally Sunday! 

The activities will be similar to last year:  

1) Beach clean-up at RYE HARBOR – Due to the tide schedule, clean-up will start at 8AM. 

2) Between services – We will be collecting items for Orphan Resources International.

For a specific list of items, please look on the table in the gathering area.

3) Singing at Wentworth Senior Living Center at 3PM.  

If you are interested in helping with any of these events, please look for the sign-up sheet on the kiosk. Don’t forget to wear your yellow or blue “God’s Work…” T-Shirts.

Also – Between the services we will have a special coffee hour and welcome back to all! Come Join US!!!!
