#ALSIceBucketChallenge



HELP ALLISON COMPLETE THE #ALSIceBucketChallenge!! 

Worship @ 10:00am.
The challenge is on @ 11:00am! 

Donate $1 for a small cup OR $5 for a big one ... then dump it on her head!


Many of you have probably seen the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that has taken over the internet in the last couple of weeks. It has raised not only awareness of Lou Gehrig's Disease--which so far has no cure and is an excruciating death for its victims--but it has also raised $50 million dollars and counting. (You can read more about ALS here.) 

The way the challenge works is this: once you are nominated, you can either dump a bucket of ice water on your head and donate $10 to an ALS charity OR skip the ice and donate $100 to an ALS charity. Photographic or video evidence posted on a social media network is required. Once completed, you nominate three other people to complete the challenge. 

Allison been nominated by two fellow pastors (Cindy McClung and Matt Camlin) as well as Frankfort's very own Mandy Schuler. And they have tried and tried and tried, but Rocky (he dog) just can't get the hang of the camera. So she need YOUR help completing this challenge! 

Tomorrow at Frankfort Church, we'll gather for worship at 10:00AM, and the challenge will begin at 11:00AM. We'll need folks who are willing to take pics and video! AND ... you can get involved to by donating ($1 for a small cup, $5 for a large cup) and dumping it on her head!

The Story

Do you have a hard time reading the Bible? Do you get stuck on the details and lose track of the bigger picture?

If so, then The Story is just the thing for you!

Frankfort Church will embark on this new adventure beginning Sun, Sept 28. Each week, we will read a new chapter of God's story of love for us, his beloved children. And you'll have a couple opportunities to gather together with other folks to talk about where you see yourself in God's story of love.

There are books for kids, teens, and adults (including large print). Check out the table in the back of the sanctuary to look at the options. Sign-ups officially begin Sun, Aug 31 ... but you can be an early bird, if you want!

"It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life's story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others' lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in the stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." --Frederick Buechner

Unbelief











I am saying just this: go to him the way the father of the
sick boy did and ask him. Pray to him, is what I am saying.
In whatever words you have. And if the little voice that is
inside all of us as the inheritance of generations of unfaith,
if this little voice inside says, "But I don't believe. I don't
believe," don't worry too much. Just keep on anyway. "Lord,
I believe; help my unbelief" is the best any of us can do really,
but thank God it is enough.

- Frederick Buechner, from The Magnificent Defeat
