Announcements for Sunday, June 26, 2022


WELCOME to everyone worshiping with us today!


VBS is July 11-15, and we need a lot of adult help – and ESPECIALLY JR. HELPERS – to have a successful week. If you’d be interested in joining this team, or helping a few days, please let Ann Backus know at Thank you!

VBS REGISTRATION! – Registration is now open for Vacation Bible School! Forms are available on the table in Henslee Hall, and a link to the form is on our website at under the News & Events section. Print out the form and return to Good Sam or Ann Backus. Next Thursday, you’ll find the registration form linked in the weekly e-newsletter. The theme this year is “KIDS LIKE ME” – Bible stories of amazing kids doing amazing things! It’s going to be a great week!

FAMILY PROMISE BEGINS TODAY! – Family Promise week begins TODAY! We hoped that we would be able to host families at Good Sam as we did prior to the pandemic. However, we will once again only be supplying dinners and gift cards for breakfast items. Please check the signup sheet as there are a few items still needed. Find the sign-up sheet at at the link or QR code on your announcement sheet.

YOUTH OPERATION BACKYARD DAY – Good Sam youth will have an Operation Backyard serve day on Tuesday, July 5th from approximately 9 am – 1pm.  This is open to youth 12 and older, or Club 45 members with a parent. We do not have a site or details yet, but we will be somewhere in Knoxville doing minor home improvements for someone in need, likely building a ramp or a pathway type project. Sinead will share more as we learn the location. If you are interested, please send RSVP to Sinead no later than June 29. These projects are always meaningful and fun, and serve our community and neighbors. Please try to join us!

PRAYERS FOR OUR HIKERS –  As we worship together this morning, our Good Sam LeConte Hikers are making their way down the mountain. Please keep them in your prayers for a safe hike down.

The Cash in the Plate for Sunday, June 26 will go to The Friends of the Smokies

The Friends of the Smokies assists the National Park Service in its mission to preserve and protect the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds and public awareness as well as providing volunteers for needed projects. Since it’s inception in 1993, the Friends has worked on historic preservation, wildlife management and rehabilitation of the park’s most impacted trails. “We give you thanks, most gracious God, for the beauty of earth and sky…for the richness of the mountains…for the songs of the birds and the loveliness of the flowers…pray that we may safeguard them…and grow in our grateful enjoyment of your abundant creation.” BCP, pg. 682

Donations can be made by sending a check to Good Sam, specifying “Friends/Smokies” in the memo line, or through Good Sam’s online giving portal by scanning the QR code on your announcement sheet.

Last week’s offering of $1,474 has been designated to go the Good Sam Refugee Family. Thank you for your generosity!
