Quarter Auction – NXTGEN Fundraiser
On August 21 at the Elks on 27 in Newport we’ll be having a Quarter Auction to benefit NXTGEN. Doors open at 6:30 and the party starts at 7 PM promptly. What is the Quarter Auction you ask? Well you bring rolls of quarters with you and when you come to the door you buy numbered paddles for $1 each. Buy one or buy several! Then the auctioneer shows items for you to bid on. It’s .25 per paddle to bid on the item. For example if you buy 3 paddles and really like the item up for grabs you would raise all 3 paddles and put 75 cents in the passing bucket. If your number is selected you win! It’s easy and a lot of fun! The Elks will also provide food and drinks for sale. Bring friends! Bring kids! (They love to raise the paddles.) Contact Mary Turner at turner92@zoomtown.com (mailto:turner92@zoomtown.com) or Missy Welch at missywelch62@gmail.com (mailto:missywelch62@gmail.com) with any questions. Also, there is a list of potential donation items for baskets at the Get Connected
Table this Sunday if you’re willing to help contribute items for the auction. Thanks!

First Impressions Team Meeting
If you are a greeter, serve within the coffee ministry, answer questions at the Get Connected Table, or move chairs on the set-up team – you are a big part of making our worship space a welcoming place! It’s vitally important that we create an environment for people to come in contact with God free of distraction where they are welcomed with a joyful and authentic expression of our community.

Our entire team and potential volunteers will be having a lunch meeting immediately after our worship service in Nexus on July 29th. It will be one hour long and you won’t have to bring anything. This will give us an opportunity to celebrate where God has taken our ministry, where he’s leading us, and how we can move forward with excitement and excellence!
