MYSTERY DINNER: 
Contact our church office for details regarding signing up and other aspects of participation.

What:     A dinner hosted by GLO volunteers for the members and friends of GLO. It is an opportunity for food, fun, and fellowship.

Who:     Who can volunteer to host the dinner; any member of the GLO family high school age and older.

When:   Saturday August 11 from 6-8 pm.

By Way of Reminder


Calling all Administrators!

In order to support our part time administrator I am calling on all of you Administration types to help support her in the requisite office duties in the foreseeable future. Please contact Pastor if interested and we will look for a date to lay out a strategic plan for the office.

Acme Community Cash Back:  An easy way to give back to GLO.     
        
1) Shop Acme Fresh Markets. 

2) Bring your Acme receipts to church. 

3) Place your receipts in the donation envelope. 

4) At the end of the year Ruth Kaser will submit our receipts and Acme will give 5% back to the church. 

Thanks for participating.


Notices

We have had a number of doors found open recently. So, by way of reminder, we ask that any doors marked with 'Emergency Exit Only' signs be   opened only in the event of emergency. This applies to the exterior doors at the Fellowship Hall, Rainbow Room, the Nursery, the Kitchen, and the west Corridor exit door outside Classroom D.  When left open these doors allow cold air and critters into the building.  Please refrain from opening these doors, but if the doors must be opened, make sure they are latched closed 
tightly before leaving.
