Fall Round-Up Approaching

Guest Speaker: Hyveth Williams from Andrews University

We're excited about this year's Fall Round-Up. Hyveth Williams, professor of homiletics (preaching) at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, will be our guest speaker. Our schedule is one evening shorter this year, but we'll still get to hear Ms. Williams four times during the weekend. A few highlights to note:
1) In addition to Sabbath School, kids ages 3-12 will enjoy their own programs/events during adult meetings on Friday night and Sabbath Church/afternoon/evening.
2) Meals are provided as always on Friday night and Saturday breakfast/lunch/supper.
3) The ABC bookmobile will be on sight Friday afternoon and after sundown on Sabbath.
4) There will be plenty of great singing and music.
5) And you can't forget Saturday night's vegeburger sale!
6) Full details found at www.springtownchurch.org.

Your Helping Hands

What Can We Do Together?

Two draft horses, alone, can pull 8,000 lbs. each. Together, those two horses can pull 24,000 lbs. Like horses, the Springtown family can do amazing things together in God's strength. Consider helping in the following ways:
1) Food Pantry Donations.
2) Box Tops for Education.
3) Worthy Student Change Buckets.
4) Community Fund.
5) Building Fund.
6) Simply saying "YES" to the opportunities God places before you each day!

A Proposal . . .

The Steering Committee is Proposing . . .

that starting the first weekend of October and going forward that Springtown's sermon be preached from 11-11:30 am. The purpose of thie change is to allow Pastor Cash to preach every week and then go to  Siloam Springs where they are changing their service times to allow him to speak from 12 noon-12:30 pm. This way Pastor Tony can be in both churches every Sabbath. For Springtown one of two things can happen. Either the program times area adjusted so that we end church service at 11:30 am with the sermon or we adjust the service so that the sermon occurs earlier in the program and Pastor Cash leaves for Siloam Springs while other elements of our servcie continue. Both Springtown and Siloam Springs will VOTE on this proposal during their respective announcement periods on September 6. If you have questions on this proposal, please talk with Pastor Cash or one of the Steering Committee members.
