Join Us for Hot Coffee and Fellowship - Coffee and fellowship are available on the first floor of the Education Building after Church School hour and before Worship each Sunday (10:00 - 10:30 a.m.)  The coffee is free until the end of the summer.  Soft drinks are available from our Coke Machine downstairs near the kitchen for 75 cents apiece.  Enjoy!

"Praise God, I Am Here!" - Please let us know that you are worshiping with us each Sunday morning by filling out the "I Am Here" slip in your bulletin.  If you have a prayer need or other information for the minister or church, let us know by filling out the lower part of the slip.  You may place it in the offering plate when it is passed.

Sunday-Morning Nursery - We have a nursery available in room 112 in the education building on Sundays, from 9:00 - 11:45 a.m. for babies and children through Kindergarten age.  For children in worship, we have "worship bags" available in the sanctuary and a Crying Room available in the balcony area.

Church Information - If you would like to know more about Arlington Church or are interested in membership, please let us know on your attendance sheet in your bulletin or call the church office (252-4393).

Hearing-Assistance Devices and Large-Print Hymnals - At the beginning of worship, feel free to pick up one of the hearing-assistance devices or large-print hymnals available near the sound booth at the back of the sanctuary.  The sound-system operator is available to help.

The Lord's Supper - As Disciples of Christ, we share in the Lord's Supper each Sunday.  Communion is open to all who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  When the trays are passed, we hold the bread and cup so that we partake together.  Each week we break a loaf of fresh bread to share.  The bread trays also hold other kinds of bread, including small rectangular individual pieces of bread as well as fish-shaped crackers for those who prefer them.

Prayer Concerns - Each week, we will include in the bulletin the names of those who want the church to pray for them.  Please let the church office know if you'd like to add your name.

Bad-Weather Closings - On weekdays, if the Fayette County Public Schools are dismissed because of the weather, activities and meetings at the church are canceled.  Cancellation of worship and activities on Sundays will be announced on local radio and television stations.

God's Pantry - God's Pantry is in need of non-perishable items such as canned goods (especially canned soups and canned fruit), boxed or packaged dry stock, bags of rice, or other packaged grains or pastas.  Please bring your donations to the church when you come to worship service on the first Sunday of every month.  Make sure that the dates on the food items you bring in have not expired.  There is a bright blue barrel in the church office which is labeled with a big sign that says "Give Hope."  Place your donations in this barrel and know that your gift gives sustenance and hope to another.

Deadline - Please give any information for the Sunday bulletin to the church office by the previous Wednesday.

Changes - Please notify the church office of any change in your address, phone number, etc., so that our congregation records can be kept up to date.

Kroger Community Rewards Program - This program pays to the Chancel Choir 4% of the cost of purchases made by customers using their registered Kroger card.  You may now register your Kroger Card for the Community Rewards Program on-line at "".  If you are having a problem registering on-line or are not a computer user, please call (800) 576-4377 to be registered by phone.  Just dial the 800 number, select option #3, give your Kroger Plus Card number, and let the person know it's to help Arlington Christian Church Chancel Choir.  If you have any questions or concerns you may contact the church office or see Jenny or Larry Brown.  Thank you.

Care for the Sanctuary - The Property Committee would appreciate special attention from everyone bringing food or beverage items into the Sanctuary.  Please take them out when leaving and clean any spill that might have occurred.  Old beverage spills can be difficult to clean up.  They, along with food crumbs, can attract ants and mice which are an ongoing problems here at Arlington.  Thank you.

Lions Recycle for Sight Program - Do you have eyeglasses you are no longer using?  If so, please bring them to the church and place them in the Lions Recycle box located in the hallway near the church office.  Your unwanted glasses will help someone see better!

Education Coupons - Remember to save your "Education" coupons found on General Mills products like cereal boxes and many other items.  Place them in the box on the table under the bulletin board outside the rear entrance to the Sanctuary.  The money raised from the coupons goes to help children in need and it is greatly appreciated.
