As the calendar has flipped into September and school-schedule rhythms are getting firmly in place, I want to make sure that some key dates and events at Ingleside are on your radar.

Membership & Missions Classes
Of course, each month we continue to have our Membership and Missions classes to help you take next steps in spiritual growth and commitment. They are scheduled as follows:
- Sunday, September 11, 4:00 p.m.
- Sunday, October 16, 4:00 p.m.
- Sunday, November 13, 4:00 p.m.
- Sunday, December 4, 4:00 p.m.
If you have not yet become a member of Ingleside or have not yet prepared to go on a mission trip, I hope to see you in one of these classes this fall.
Food Service Transition
After more than six years on our team, Laurence Dantzler, our Executive Chef/Food Service Director, has resigned to become the Operations Manager at Wilson’s Bakery in Warner Robins. His last day at Ingleside will be Thursday, September 22.
We are very grateful for the way Laurence has served the Lord and our church. Under his leadership, our Food Service ministries have experienced great growth and have enhanced the fellowship and outreach of our church in significant ways.
I know you will join me in expressing appreciation to Laurence for his service at Ingleside and will pray the Father’s favor as he, Candace, and their family begin a new chapter.
In the interim, Sam Wurstner, our Sous Chef, will provide day-to-day leadership in our Food Service ministry. He will be the point person for event planning and other Food Service ministry needs, under the leadership of our Operations Team Leader, Tim Newberry.
Your Pastor and Friend,
