What’s Happening: September 1

THIS SUNDAY AT McKENDREE!
SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES  are regularly at 9am and 11am (on Fifth Sundays we have one combined worship service at 10am).  This Sunday will be the first week of our sermon series “Count Life All Joy!”  By living in a world that is chaotic and confusing, if we are not careful, we can lose our joy forlife.  God calls us to celebrate in the midst of the chaos.  This life is filled with uncertainty and uncontrollable situations, but life, the life that God gives us, is filled with the joy of the LORD!  How do we reclaim our joy?  Join us for a time of reclaiming and renewing the joy of the LORD that is already within us.

are so distracted by our surroundings, we miss getting off on the right exit.  The right exit is where God is directing us, not a place or destination.  God desires that we discover and discern His direction so that we are clear about our faith steps on the journey.  How do we know when to exit?  Let’s journey together and see where God is leading us so we don’t miss getting on the right exit.

LIFE GROUP SIGN-UPS THIS SUNDAY!!  Do you belong to a Life Group?   McKendree Church has a variety of Life Groups for men, women, couples, mixed men and women, moms, and even for couponers.  Some groups meet here at the church and others meet in various locations in Nashville and Brentwood.  Some are morning groups, some meet in the evening, some at noon.  Our groups are designed to be Missional, Discipling, Nurturing, and Accountable.  Our new semester of Life Groups is starting soon!  If you Life Groups don’t belong to a Life Group, be sure to sign up Sunday!  Sign-up sheets will be on the tables at the front and back entrances of the church.  If you can’t make it on Sunday, but want to sign up for a Life Group, or if you’d like more information about our Life Groups, contact Ruth Baggett in the church office (615-271-2600 or mckendreeinfo@gmail.com).
THE ENCOUNTER@EDGEHILL will meet this Sunday, September 4 at 6pm at Edgehill Café, 1201 Villa Place, Nashville, 37212.  This is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, and multi-class movement and extension ministry of Mc Kendree for the purpose of building bridges of hope through the love of Jesus Christ. Edgehill Café is the first of several locations planned for Nashville neighborhoods including MetroCenter, 12 South and Music Row.  For more information contact Pastor Stephen Handy (mckendreestephen@gmail.com) or Rick Quinn (mckendreerick@gmail.com).
OLD MOTHER HUBBARD WENT TO THE CUPBOARD – and found that there were no MEN’S CLOTHES IN THE CLOSET!!!  We desperately need men’s clothing, especially in size large, extra-large and on up!   SHOES, PANTS, PULLOVER SHIRTS, T-SHIRTS, UNDERWEAR AND SOCKS!  Men, if you can’t part with some of your old clothes, you can go to Goodwill and buy some clean, used clothing and donate it.
