It is hard to believe but fall is upon us real soon, and that means the renewal of discipleship studies at the church. Bible study will resume this September 5th, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the conference room. Come and join our study! The group determines what is studied each time! We have built a great group of core people and would love to have you join us! Kick off meeting will be September 5th at 6:30 PM. I will have sample bible study material available on the table outside the office for people to preview before the study begins! *We will be studying When God Calls by Mary Jessup for this fall.

KINGDOM BUILDING DISCUSSION
SEPTEMBER 26, 2019 - 7:00 PM
All members of the Roanoke City churches: Central, First Church, Hollins Road, Ninth Street and Williamson Road, are invited to participate in a discussion of some of the insights and wisdom about Kingdom Building that Paul Mundey shared at the Kingdom Building Conference May 31 and June 1. Paul’s presentation included much food for thought, and we will give others the opportunity to benefit from his advice. We will meet at Hollins Road Church on Thursday evening, September 26 at 7 pm. Topics include “The Person I Must Become” and “Stories of Churches Growing Young”. There will be opportunities to share what has worked in your church and the problems that your church has experienced in seeking to follow Christ’s commandment to make disciples of all people. This opportunity is for anyone who has an interest in Kingdom Building, not just pastors and Witness Team members, so invite a friend! Paul was kind enough to share some of his materials which can be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/ychj83ma. For more information contact Harry Rhodes at 588-1663 or the DRC.

FROM THE WESTERN VIRGINIA WATER AUTHORITY
We have received notice from the Water Authority regarding the waterline replacement project. They are wanting us to be aware of the upcoming water line construction activity in the neighborhood. This project is intended to improve water quality and fire protection in the area. The construction work was scheduled to begin at the end of June and continue for approximately five months. The Authority will contact us directly if there are any changes to our water or sewer service that would require our attention. All construction will be confined to the street or existing water and sewer easements on this property. All business, potential school, and church traffic will be accommodated during construction. Just be aware, it may be necessary to enter and exit the parking lot at the Crockett Ave entrance during this time.
