The 33rd annual Webster Fall Festival is less than two weeks away and your help is needed to get things ready. You can easily sign-up online or if you prefer there are sign-up sheets in the Fellowship Hall at the church. This community event is made possible by many volunteers from the community, as well as members and friends of Webster United Church of Christ and Webster Township Historical Society. It is a great way to get to know your neighbors!

The Rummage Sale needs lots of help to unpack boxes, mark items, and organize.

“SOUL FOOD AND SPIRIT” SUNDAY SCHOOL KICKOFF is this Sunday, Sept. 7 at 10:00 a.m. Sunday School classes offer an hour of biblical instruction and age appropriate activities that include: singing, movement, drama, and overall creative education. We follow the same order as the church's lectionary, so that at any given time you know what your child is studying.

There will be numerous activities for the youth to participate in at the kickoff and since this is a potluck Sunday, there will be a meal after the service. Registration forms will be available for parents to fill out. Sunday School classes officially begin September 14, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Kickoff Sunday is a great opportunity for the kids to meet the teachers, socialize with each other, and explore our new classrooms and learning areas. Please come out and join us as we get ready for an exciting new year of learning in God's name!


Ghana Thanksgiving Service - Sunday, Aug. 31

This special service was organized by Jean Mutara, former refugee from Krisan Sanzule, to praise God for his blessings and to thank Webster Church in-person for all that was done, in 10 years of involvement, for the refugees who resided at Krisan Sanzule, the UNHCR refugee camp. Mutara and the Rev. LaVerne M. Gill will be guest speakers. An African song will be taught and there will be a drummer during the service. An ALL CHURCH PICNIC on Jennings Rd. immediately follows the service. An entrée of chicken and rice will be provided by the hosts. All other Websterites are asked to bring a dish to pass. We will have more song, dance and joy after our blessing and meal. In the event of rain, we will meet in the Fellowship Hall.

Reverend Gill is the author of Faith and Kidney Disease: Prayers, Meditations and Spiritual Disciplines for People with Kidney Disease and she served as Pastor at Webster from 1999 to 2008. Jean Mutara, R.N., was the camp clinic nurse for seven years at the Krisan Sanzule camp in Ghana. He, his wife and children now live in Chicago.
