Faith Church Invites Community to “Carnival of Faith
On Sunday September 21, 2014, Faith United Presbyterian Church will hold another of its family friendly services to connect with people within the community. An atmosphere of celebration will be evident as the Faith Players will perform a new skit and worship will feature music from a variety of genres. “We’re trying to provide a church experience that connects with people of faith in a way that is fun yet respectful,” said Revered Ruth Ann Christopher. “We are hopeful that this experience will be meaningful to a diversity of people.”
Immediately following worship, there will be a luncheon for those in attendance featuring “carnival foods.” There will be a special treat for children involving some smashing good times with a piñata and a visit by our own colorful guest. (Shhh…don’t let on that the Faith clown will make an appearance.) A Carnival would not be complete without dessert and one of the more popular Faith Church desserts will be on the menu.
As always, the public is invited to attend. So mark your calendars for September 21, 2014. Worship starts 10:00am and the Carnival fun starts shortly after that. The only requirements are to bring joy, a good appetite, a friendly smile, and maybe a child or two to enjoy the fun. “This has been part of an on-going effort to get to know the people in our communities,” said Pastor Christopher. “And we’ve had a great time doing it!”

Ask The Doc........
by Dr. Gary Williams, DMD
Well, it’s that time again! In most North American homes, the count-down is on for the beginning of a new school year.
It always gets me thinking about the great sampling of people we see in our dental office. From newborns to 90-somethings.
Last week someone asked me the question, “looking in the mouths of many 40 and 50 year-olds, what could have been different if health was addressed when they were, say…15 years old? The answer is a resounding, a lot!
We realize that we do have the opportunity and know-how to change the health future for today’s school kids.
In the year 2014 we have the advantage of all the research, learning, and yes, mistakes that have been made by humans, to learn from. And what does that information say?
Step in early (school age), and maximize every variable for success. Dentistry knows how to achieve a successful long-term outcome. Once dentistry, parents and children comply; we can change the future of your family’s overall health, for the better. Call a Dental Professional today, and change your future.
Cash Prizes for pumpkin carving contest and volunteers needed
Octoberfest this year will be held at Bangor Memorial Park on Saturday and Sunday, October 11th and 12th.
We are looking for groups to participate in the themed, carved pumpkin display. Maybe you own a business and you have a group of employees that would like to get together to carve some pumpkins to enter in the display. You can pick whatever theme you would like. You can search for ideas on the internet.
There have been some interesting themes in the past such as Harry Potter, classic cars, Toy Story, Elvis, etc. Do you play a sport? Maybe your group wants to carve pumpkins to show that sport? The only cost to enter is that you have to buy your own pumpkins. A group of themed pumpkins should have at least 6 or more in their display.
There will be CASH prizes awarded for the top 3 best group of themed, carved pumpkins. Prizes range from $100 to $25.00.
Our scarecrow making booth is in need of adult size small or youth sized clothing such as old pants and shirts.
We are also in search of volunteers to help in all aspects of the event. Volunteers are needed to help with selling tickets, collecting tickets at booths, running booths, helping to set up and clean up the pumpkin displays and working in the food stand.
For more information or to volunteer contact Sherry at 610-588-6894 or Debbie at email@example.com
