NEW ● Family Festival Help Needed

Pool Noodles!! Bean Bags!! Mount Olivers!! For the Family Festival to be held on Saturday, October 21, I am planning to create a Kid’s Obstacle Course. I like this idea because it promotes physical activity and I think it will attract attention as folks drive by. That said…I need a few things to put this course together…if you have pool noodles…bean bags…balls from golf ball size to baseball size…hula hoops…rings I could use for a ring toss game…large cardboard boxes that I might duct tape together to create a tunnel that the kids can crawl thru…that I could borrow. I am also planning on some kid games like bean bag toss, ring toss and a fishing pond. I could sure use a few fun-loving folks to help run the games and the obstacle course. If you are interested in a “Midway” position or are willing to lend me some of the stuff I need, please let me know. Dixie Gerhart…402-453-6707 home…402-602-3252 work…dgerhart@fnni.com.

More Bad Girls

Our new Bible study is underway--Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn From Them by Liz Curtis Higgs. Last year we had a lot of fun and learned how a perfect God deals with imperfect people. Books will be provided or you can purchase your own copy to keep. The study will be held 6 times on Tuesday evenings, 6:15 to 7:30 p.m., in September, October and November. We'll meet in Mt. Olive's fellowship hall. Each lesson stands on its own, so if you cannot attend regularly…no worries! You won’t have to read aloud and homework is not required. We have three Tuesday nights left; Oct. 17, Nov. 7, and Nov. 21. If you have any questions or concerns, please give Dixie Gerhart a call at 402-602-3252 (day) or 402-453-6707 (evening).
