Allied Churches Pantry Needs: Recently Ray and Gayle Pollard took the bread to the pantry and could not believe how bare the shelves were. One of the long-time volunteers said she couldn't remember when they had so little. Therefore, the Mission and Outreach Board would like to send out an appeal for non-perishable food items to be brought to the church. They especially need breakfast items, canned meat and peanut butter. Thank you for your help!
Women’s Under the Parasol Tea: The Women’s Under the Parasol Tea will be held on August 26 from 2-4 pm in the Community Life Center. A variety of teas will be provided. Women’s Ministries will discuss the programs available at the church. Hats and gloves are optional. Keep an eye out for sign-ups in the bulletin. All women of the church are invited!
FOOTBALL SUNDAY RETURNS ON AUGUST 12! One of the biggest worship services of the year as we welcome 115 visitors into church for worship, blessing the team, and the largest meal of year we hold! Make sure you plan to attend for this wondrous tradition! Drinks, chicken, pot roast, mashed potatoes, and macaroni and cheese will be provided. The congregation is asked to bring salads,
vegetables, pasta, and desserts. They love our homemade food, so please bring a generous amount! Sign up on the insert in the bulletin.
Chat and Chow will meet next at 5:30 pm on Friday, August 10 at O’Charley’s on Huffman Mill Road in Burlington. Please sign-up on the insert if you plan to attend. Please see Margaret McTaggart with any questions.
Classroom Closet Collection: During the month of July we will be collecting school supply items for Alamance County's Classroom Closet. This is a place where teachers from our county may go to get supplies for their classrooms. Do you know that with budgets cuts to our education programs, teachers spend on the average of $1,000 a year on supplies for their classroom? They need help from the community. Please check out the school supply sales now going on and pick up notebooks, paper, pencils, glue and glue sticks, crayons, and more! Boxes will be in the narthex and atrium to place the items in. Thanks for your help!

Music Ministry Endowment Fund: Every week ECC is richly blessed with music as an important aspect of our worship. To augment the budgeted funds for these efforts your Music Committee has newly established a Music Ministry Endowment Fund. Your support of this fund may be to: General Needs, Guest Musicians, Choir Soloists, Music Camp, Hand Bell Maintenance, Organ Maintenance, Piano Maintenance, Other ___________. This Endowment Fund is an excellent channel for your expression of love at a time of memorial giving or to honor someone. It provides for beauty long after flowers will have faded. If your heart sings a melody after worship services may it inspire you to remember this newly created way for gift giving and sharing in the splendor of our music.
Organ and Vocal Recital CDs are on sale! You can purchase CDs from the church office during office hours. Proceeds will benefit Elon Community Church’s music Program.
Good Shepherd Kitchen and Good Samaritan Fund
Every Sunday please bring canned foods which will be taken to Allied Churches' Good Shepard Kitchen. Also on the first Sunday of each month, donations may be made to our church's Good Samaritan Fund.
