Hi all, 

Did you miss it? We are hiring! We are looking for a second peer minister for Bridge and a part time Director for Youth and Family.  (The second position is ideal for a grad student who will be in Athens a few years.) Click here for more details. 
ATTENTION: Your RSVP and non-refundable deposit for both the retreat and canoeing are due this Wednesday Sept. 8th.  You can now pay easily online - email us at for more details. 
Read on to see how to choose your meal for Wednesday and how to RSVP for any of our upcoming events.  
What we have happening this week:
1) Bridge Wednesday Night Dinner/Discussion 5:30 pm Wed. Sept. 8th in the side yard (or Fellowship Hall if inclement weather). 
  • Features hot dogs from Larry's.  It's $.99 Weenie Wednesday.  Please let Rinnah know how many of the short (less than 6") hot dogs you would like and if you want them standard (onions, mustard, coney sauce) or with cheese.  To keep it simple, we are only ordering the short dogs, so if you usually get a coney, order two shorts!  It's about the same amount of meat :) You can also let Rinnah know if you would like a side of regular or seasoned fries. Text her with your name and order by noon on Wednesday: 513-604-3061
  • All are welcome!  We continue on with our readings from Songs of Solomon and learning from the book My Grandmother's Hands.  It's not chronological, so no worries if you missed us last week! 
2) Worship 10am Sun. Sep. 12th in the side yard of the church (behind student house). 
  • If folks want to do coffee, tea, or juice at a local place after worship again, we absolutely can -- but you will be buying your own this time :)  Let us know Sunday!
