PRAYER AND PRAISE POINTS
Every other Wednesday evening the Elders meet for several hours to pray for the body and seek wisdom as they strive to lead and shepherd the body at Big Woods according to the Word of God.  Last evening some of the pressing needs and prayer points that they are asking for you to pray alongside them can be found [by clicking] here.

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS
For your consideration, the following individuals have applied for membership: Eugene and Linda Beyer, Adam and Rachel Krick, Matt Geisewite, Evan and Amanda Geisewite, Jared and Jill Sims, Ron and Sherry Haffley.  Please pray and express your desires to the Elders.  We will officially welcome them into membership on Sunday, September 12.

SUMMER FUN EVENT
Please join us this Sunday for our next Summer Fun Church Event – FREE MOVIE NIGHT here in the church sanctuary at 6:00 p.m..  Come and enjoy popcorn and the movie Lion King,

HOME GROUPS
Here at Big Woods, one of the ways we seek to keep our growing body small is through home groups. Home groups are small groups of people meeting in homes, encouraging one another in their walk with Christ by talking about the Bible and praying for one another. This year, we are making an exciting change: instead of meeting every week, home groups will meet every other week! We plan to start meeting the week of September 12th.  Please sign up [by clicking] here.

PRAYER GATHERING
Starting September 22nd, we will be having a Wednesday evening prayer gathering. We will start at 6:30 and worship through song, have a devotional, then spend time praying for the people and needs within our body! At our first gathering, we will have a potluck from 5:30-6:30 to enjoy table fellowship with one another first. This prayer gathering will be every other Wednesday and will be one of the ways we can bear one another’s burdens as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus together.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY FELLOWSHIP (BSF)
Starting on Tuesday, September 14, BSF will meet here at Big Woods from 9:30-11:00 a.m. every Tuesday through May and will be studying the whole book of Matthew.  The discussion group will be led by Kari Hensler.  If you are unable to make it at this time, another group will meet Tuesday evenings (starting September 14) from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Great Island church.  That group will be led by Suzanne Camerer.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 
There will be a large outreach presentation in December called Big Woods Christmas Worship in the Woods.  Right now, we are looking for 4-6 families that would be willing to commit to a total of 10 hours until October to pop in lights to the outdoor props.  This can be done at your home.  If you can help, please see Travis Best.  He can also be reached at 570-279-1746.  Stay tuned for further details on Big Woods Christmas Worship in the Woods
