    “Running on Empty”

     ►Worship service in the chapel, 8 a.m. 

    ♦ Sunday school at 9 a.m.:

    ■ We will collect our “two cents a meal” offering. This goes to our local schools in providing meals or snacks for children in need.

    The session meets immediately after the 8:00 and 10:00 services to receive people into membership. If God is leading you to become a part of this church family, please come forward at that time.

    Fellowship time will resume Sept. 8 after a summer break.

     See you in church. Bring a friend. 

    Looking ahead . . . 

    Swift Church offers children’s church (grades K–4) during the 10:00 service after “Time with the children.” It normally is offered each Sunday except for communion Sundays. It is on seasonal break and will resume in September.

     B ecause God is with you all the time,
    no place is any closer to God
    than the place where you are right now.

     Remember the old rugged cross. 

    ‘Time with the children’
    Our 10 a.m. services normally include
    this segment focused on young worshipers.
