 BOULDERLINE ZIP — Richard and Tammy Isaac (CLC members) have invited us to Boulderline Adventure out at Lake Lure on September 16th.  This will be an afternoon of fun! Those who want to ride the zip line will get the discounted half price of:  Adults – $25    Children – $22.50. They also have small zip lines that are just 25 ft. off the ground and go a short distance for those who want to try it but are unsure.  The Isaac’s also have a climbing wall, walking trails and many interesting things to do and see.  The only thing you will need to pay for is the zip lines. For dinner, please bring a side to share and we will provide hot dogs.  We can also roast marshmallows and have a fire that evening! You can visit their web site for more information: (The date was changed because of the Habitat work day and the Morganton Historic Festival.)

Sunday, August 27th – Backpack Blessing – This is not just for children but also those whose vocation includes a backpack or bag.  Bring your backpack/bag to worship on August 27th at 10 am and receive a blessing.  This is a special way for us to remember that we “carry” Christ with us every day in all that we do.  He goes with us to school, work and even shopping. You never know when your words or actions will give others a glimpse of what the love of Jesus looks like.  Use your bag as a reminder of “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5;22-23.

Saturday, September 9th – Habitat for Humanity Work Day.  Call Bob Kilpatrick or Charlie Buckner to volunteer!
