THE GREEN LINK: We are entertaining the option of “Going Green” with our monthly newsletter, The LINK, by sending it via email (as a pdf file) instead of via the U.S. postal system. This would reduce our consumption of paper, print supplies, wear & tear on the machines, cost of postage, etc. If you are interested in this option, please send your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org with “THE GREEN LINK” in the subject line. Contact Barb in the church office if you have any questions: 330-666-3520 / email@example.com
THE BATH CHURCH MISSION BOARD invites contributions to assist relief efforts as a result of the recent devastating tornados in Oklahoma and the disaster in Bangladesh which took the lives of over 1,100 garment factory workers. Checks should be made out to Church World Service which is the relief agency of Protestant and Orthodox churches. Offering envelopes should be marked “for Church World Service”.
SPLASH WORDS OF WISDOM:
A bend in the road is not the end of the road…unless you fail to make the turn.
The art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Appreciation is like an insurance policy. It has to be renewed every now and then.
The Peace of Christ be with you!
