From 09-26-2010 Sunday Bulletin

Post date: Oct 10, 2010 12:43:53 PM

· TODAY – Fr. Ciprian’s 35th Birthday Celebration – Everyone is invited to stay. Catered by Alex Hadjis so you know the food will be good. Part of what will happen will be a surprise to Fr. Ciprian and, therefore, sure to be fun J Right before the beginning of the party, Presbytera Maggie encourages you to be one of the people to jot down on paper something about yourself from around 1975 that you don’t mind sharing with others (funny or serious). If Fr. Ciprian will not guess who you are in 3 tries, you will reveal yourself.

· SUNDAY SCHOOL – After receiving Holy Communion, all students will go downstairs for their Sunday School lessons. We now have 7 classrooms going on at the same time in the church hall; needless to say, a crying baby, setting up for fellowship, and even conversations in the coat area during class time will be very distracting to the students and teachers. Thus, please set up for fellowship early and, if you must be downstairs for whatever reason, remain in the coat area quietly please. Thanks to all for your cooperation! And thank you to Joe Wright for fixing the Preschool classroom table.

· Fr. Ciprian thanks everyone for making the effort to always call the Office number first (364-5460) when needing to get ahold of him; it seems to already be making a positive difference in his daily church routines. Remember if he is not in the office, leave a message, but if there is an emergency (day or night), never hesitate to call him on his cell 319-389-3190. Please make note of weekday schedule changes in the Sunday Bulletin header.

· FALL GREEK DINNER – October 10, 2010 from 11:30am-7:00pm at the Scottish Right – The success of this fundraising dinner is very important, so please do the best you can to sell all your assigned tickets and ask for more. Be sure to turn in all your ticket income (and unsold tickets) before or on the day of the dinner. You will be contacted by Philoptochos to help out with pastries (work or donations). Last but not least, please sign up for volunteer shifts on the sign-up sheet in the Church Hall as soon as possible. There still are plenty of opening and we need to have all the shifts covered.
