We are exploring the possibility of beginning a Midweek Class for people post high school to forty. If you are part of this group and would be interested in possibly being a part of this class please indicate on the Interest Sheet in the Hallway.

Would you like to help with our A/V ministry? There is a sign-up sheet in the hallway for anyone willing to help from September through December. We need people to run the computer, soundboard, or cameras for both morning worship services. Just mark the box on the sign-up sheet for any part of the A/V ministry with which you are willing to help. (If needed, training will be provided.) Please list Sundays you can’t serve in the “Scheduling Requests” box. There is also a box to mark if you want to be removed from the A/V schedule. If you are currently helping with our A/V ministry and don’t want anything changed, you don’t need to sign up again unless you need to list Sundays you can’t serve. Any questions? See Pastor Vince or Jonathan Pletcher. Last day to sign up is August 22.

An Opportunity to Give:  An individual, from our church, has offered to match up to $10,000.00 for more HVAC at the Fellowship Center.  The two exercise rooms must be included in this round.  The funds must be raised in the next three months (until September 20, 2021) and the installation must be completed with the next twelve months.  Please make checks payable to Kingwood Church of God and give to Cheryl Pletcher.  If you have questions, please ask Cheryl.

A Note of Thanks…

John Kreger, Jr. would like to thank everyone for the birthday card shower for John, Sr.  He appreciated receiving the cards.

 There is a thank you note from Birthright of Somerset on the bulletin board.


 * There is an unstaffed nursery for babies located on the same floor as the sanctuary that may be used at any time.

* For the 10:30 Worship Service, we have a staffed nursery downstairs in room 1 for children up through the age of 3.

* Feel free to use the downstairs nursery even if it is not staffed.

* Both nurseries have a closed circuit TV through which you can watch the worship service.

Jr. Church (8:15 & 10:30 Worship Services)

 * We offer a Jr. Church program during both morning worship services downstairs in the social room for children age 3 up to and including 6th grade.

Should my 3 year-old be in the nursery or Jr. Church?

 * If your child is going to turn 4 before September 1st, your child should be in Jr. Church.

* If your child is going to turn 4 on or after September 1st, your child should be in the nursery until the first Sunday in September of this year.

* If you would like your 3 year-old to be in Jr. Church before he/she is supposed to be in Jr. Church, then you need to stay with your child during Jr. Church each Sunday until a leader says it is okay to leave.

Sunday School (9:30)

 * We have classes for children (beginning when they are old enough to walk), youth, and adults. If your child is not old enough to walk, feel free to take him/her with you to your class. For more info, please see either the Sunday School brochure or the Welcome Packet. They are located in the pew rack and on a table in the hallway.

 Want to know more about our church?

 * There are folders with more info about our church in the racks of each pew. Please take one home with you and check it out.
