AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE
Would you like the ability to converse with deaf and hard of hearing people when they come into your workplace, or you see them at school, or they come to your church? There are thousands of people in the United States who use American Sign Language as their primary means of communication.
We are working on offering a 6-week class in basic, conversational, American Sign Language, starting the second week in October, and we’d like to know who's interested in taking the class. Anyone from high school on up would be welcome to come whether or not you’re a member of our church. You would also learn a little about Deaf history and Deaf culture, but the class would mostly be focused on ASL (American Sign Language.)
At this point we’re not asking any kind of commitment; we just want to find out how many people are interested. From there we can determine the day of the week, and the time that works for most people. If you are interested, please contact Bonnie at firstname.lastname@example.org
PRE-SERVICE WORSHIP AND PRAYER

CALLING ALL SERVANTS
As the ministries, function and events of the church increase we are finding the ever present need to increase our volunteer base. These opportunities are linked not only to member initiatives but also to community outreach. In order to serve these events well we need your help and participation. Examples of needs are:

· Truth Quest
· Event set-up/Breakdown
· Coffee Bar
· Infant Suite
We need you! Should you desire to serve in one of these ways please sign up at the front desk today indicating the area that you could be most effective and use your gifts. "...from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love." Ephesians 4:16
