We're Taking Names!

Dear Arbor Grove Friends: We are preparing to do a mass outreach mailing to our neighborhood and your neighborhoods to connect more people to the ministry of Arbor Grove. We have a doner who is financing the mailing, and we need to develop the mailing list. We are asking for your help. If you could collect the names and addresses of your neighbors, or even the house numbers of your neighbors and email them to me at [email protected], with the words “Outreach Mailing” in the subject line. If you don’t do email, simply write a list of anyone you can think of whom we could add to our mailing and drop or mail it at church. From this, we will build a list of people for our mailing. We hope to have this ready to go by the end of August.

We will not be sharing this list with anyone else. We will simply be sending out an informational brochure about Arbor Grove and our ministry here. We also would love the names and addresses of people you feel might be looking for a church home. This is an easy way for you to help introduce and invite people to our church and help us multiply the ministry here.

As the song goes, "Cuz your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends. The more we get together, the happier we'll be!"

Save the Date ~ August 22, 2021
Arbor Grove Church was awarded a $500 John Richard Endowment Grant to do a Faith and Drumming Workshop this August. We will be making rhythm instruments, learning drumming from local Band Director Dan Bickle, and hear from Native American and Department of Natural Resources specialist Jim Marshall about Native American Spirituality and Christian Faith. The event begins with intergenerational activities at 5:00 p.m., our presenters from 6:00-7:30, including singing and drumming traditional music around an outdoor fire pit in our church yard. We will conclude with popcorn and s’mores. This event is for all ages, and we will be incorporating some of the music and the instruments we received in our grant in our morning worship on August 22.

Come with a heartbeat for God and others, and enjoy the rhythm of life! Summer is sizzlin’! Enjoy it at Arbor Grove!
