Announcements for Sunday, July 14, 2019

Demographic Survey: The Congregational Identity Committee is gathering demographic information to get a better handle on who our members are. Please take the survey at https://tinyurl.com/EnglishCongSurvey. It is mobile phone friendly, but please don't let it distract you from worshiping today! Paper copies and a computer version will be available in the lobby after the service. If you participated in the NCD survey in May, this one gathers different data and we ask that you take this one as well. Thanks for your help.

Children’s Ministry: The 2019--2020 Sunday School sign up sheet is posted on the Children's Ministry bulletin board in the lower lobby.  Please pray for God to provide more brothers and sisters to serve in the Children's Ministry. We aim to teach our children to know God more through Bible learning.  For any questions, please contact Angel Lee.

Summer Women’s Bible Study: Please join us for our Summer Women’s Bible Study at Mary Kay’s home on Fridays from 7:15 to 9:15pm. We will be having fellowship, prayer, and discussions on 2 Timothy about being entrusted with the Gospel and entrusting it to others. This is a 5-week series for building up our community of sisters in Christ.

Missions Spotlight: The NSCCC Short Term Missions Team is serving July 14-20 at a family camp for about 60 students ages 5-15. This will be our ninth year serving at this area in the Far East. Our team of ten, including Kristin Shau, Alex Dong, Michelle Chen, Sylvia Chen, Elijah Leong, Shawn Yu, and Helen Yu, need your ongoing prayer.  

Sundays at Ten: Here are the upcoming topics for our weekly, large-group discussion time:

  • Today: Gender Pronouns
  • July 21: Church Life Balance
  • July 28: American vs. Christian Values

Come join us for lively and biblically grounded discussion over coffee. We meet at the downstairs fellowship hall.

Church Landscaping Project Fundraising: Thank you for supporting the church landscape project as we continue to engage our ministry programs and members.  The plan remains to plant new trees, incorporate a rain garden, spring bulbs, and children’s planting area. The next step is to raise funds, and we ask for donations to the Church capital improvement fund.  The cost is estimated to be $10k - $12k. We will start installation once we attain the funds. The garden plans are posted in the church library glass wall.  Please contact Nelson Chueng for more details.

Save the Saturdays: We are conducting an 8-hour Spiritual Gifts Training Course for our members. It will take place on back-to-back Saturdays, from 9:30am – 2:45pm, on 9/21 & 9/28. Please save those Saturdays as we look forward to this training course held at NSCCC, entitled, “Discovering God’s Vision for Your Life: You and Your Spiritual Gifts.”

Retreat Budget Update: Here are the financial updates from our Summer Retreat:

Income: $13,610

Expenses: $26,616

Deficit: $13,006

The Deacon Board reduces rates to make the retreat as affordable as possible for our members. If you are led to help offset the deficit, please write “Summer Retreat” in the memo of your check.

Gardeners wanted for the Church Landscaping Project: This past fall, incorporating input from church members and children’s ministry, a landscape plan was prepared for the circular island in front of the church parking lot.  The plan included planting new serviceberry trees, a washed gravel rain garden, spring bulbs, and children’s planting area in front.  We invite further participation from any of our church ministry programs or members interested in contributing time for planting, watering or helping maintain the garden, and be part of the Garden Team!  We aim to make it a fun way to serve the church.   Please contact Nelson Chueng for more details.
