My family started over 30 ministries so I’ve been a member of church after church during that time, some of which were more than a century old , and that makes for a lot of returnees to an even they call Homecoming . Coming home is a favorite human activity; the High School Homecoming , or home for the Holidays. Many churches share the Homecoming Sunday tradition. One Sunday each year a huge preachers list , deacons, and teachers return for a day. There’s extra preaching, stories, music, and of course special church homecoming bulletins It’s one part Spiritual, and one part family reunion .

How to Advertise a Homecoming

First you must know who’s missing from home , which is no small task . An unassuming office volunteer gets the task and spends a week on the telephone, and yelling Christian obscenities on their commute home . Then formal invitations must be printed , and of course design the “Happy Homeliness” cake.

Who wouldn’t want that job? If it’s you, check out these possibilities. Email made this job somewhat simpler , but phones are still involved. Unless you stole a McDonald’s drive-thru headset you’ll be at your desk a lot and your children will wonder why you’re home so late . You might try Googling their name of each 75 year old former Sunday School teacher , hoping you do don’t find it under obituaries, or you can use the free White Pages thing online, I recommend the latter. Keep samples of the various church bulletins you have used. Definitely keep a notepad ready of those names, addresses, and phone numbers. It makes next year’s job easier, and it could be sold to any new admin!

Homecoming The Next Generation

A big reason to have a Homecoming event is so people can follow up. Try these ideas: Have a section that’s blank on for autographs and emails. A lot of them are boring and empty, but there are hundreds of covers – Bible verses, laughing children, or the standby little white church with a steeple. Get extra for the overflow crowd, and watch the fun.

For a short period, while there is still time to either order, or run – select online Christian stores are offering all church bulletins 25-50% off! Select from hundreds of designs for every occasion. This year, keep the trauma to a minimum, take time to research , and get a pad to write on . Be blessed! Godspeed.

If you’re looking a little something to pep up the church or worship service, one may prefer to investigate prefabricated Church Bulletins. Simply distribute all the details and unique details for virtually any service, any congregation, and any denomination! Church Bulletin Templates are actually offered in numerous formats, frequently downloadable, and sometimes free, which makes printing swift and effortless.

Church Bulletins are made to make things much simpler for you and the team to notify the congregation about what is happening in the church life throughout the week, as well as in the worship service; that way events stick better in folks’s minds. Members have a hands-on reference for upcoming weekly or monthly events: outreach to your town, weddings, Easter, and other holiday commemorations, vacations, graduations and much more.

Custom Design Bulletins

Prefabricated Church Bulletins are attractive and picturesque! Your weekly services integrate attractive impressive photographs, enhanced with Scriptures. Think of reading, “Be still and know that I Am God” (Psalm 46:10, NIV) overlaid on a quiet, introspective snapshot of sunlight bursting through an evergreen wood. Or, “Great is Thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22, KJV) on a glorious sunset, and a single tree far off in a green field. The images on a Bible Bulletin are actually dynamic, even moreso when tied to God’s awe-inspiring attributes.

Specialty Church Bulletins come two types: those for particular holidays as well as those for your own Church Celebrations. Easter versions are emblazoned with the cross, the vacant tomb, or hints of early spring, overlaid with cheerful proclamations that Jesus is, indeed, alive! Advertise the church’s special events: congratulatory bulletins with respect to Bible college graduates, memorials of Christ’s sacrifice for communion, and Wedding Bulletins are all available.

Now For The Lighter Side

Of course, one could wish to feature a lighter side for the congregation: jokes, stories, parables, and the like. Several assortments are available along these lines; one of the most comprehensive and, dare I say, funniest– is actually the collection, A Box of Delights, A Barrel of Surprises, and A Bundle of Laughs, assembled by J. John and Mark Stibbe. J. John is a Canon of Coventry Cathedral– a title in which he delights, for its alliteration and his sense of humor. Incorporate that with his buddy Mark Stibbe, and you have 3 volumes of long and short tales – both hilarious and inspirational; excellent for spicing up weekly bulletins.

Accept only the most respected Church Bulletins! Find the largest selections, for every holiday and church event – hundreds of styles at savings up to 50% off, available only from Quality Online Christian Retailers.

Some 2004-07 Prius hybrids may produce an annoying squeaking sound when the brake pedal is applied or released. Toyota says the noise is most audible when the key is in the Ready mode with the vehicle not moving. It seems that a defective brake actuator assembly is the likely culprit.

Before condemning the actuator, however, try bleeding the brake system. If the noise goes away, you’re done with the fix. If the noise remains after getting out that last belch of air, replace the brake actuator with an upgraded unit, Part No. 44500-47090.

Question:
My 2003 Toyota Camry ac light is flashes . I tried to add r134 however the compressor will not kick in . Is there a way to by pass the pressure switch like the old days ? If not what can I do ? I checked relays/fuses. tried to add r134 but compressor would not kick in .

Answer:
These systems aren’t like the good ole days, but the concept is still the same.

I have encountered the same problem you’re having countless times. And most of the time (90%), the problem lies within the M/C Clutch relay located under the fuse box under the hood. The relay shorts out and shuts down the A/C. A newly designed relay is offered from Toyota if the part number falls within the failed one. I have attached a file for your review.

By now I am sure you have heard about the Dex-cool issue involving the need to replace the intake manifold gaskets of GM cars from 1995 to 2004. And you are also aware that GM lost a class action settlement ( http://autorepairarticles.com/category/recalls/ ) . If you had this repair done, you have until Oct 27, of this year to get your money from GM. Follow the link posted above to get the required form and read the entire issue.

What causes the issue in the first place?

The Dex-cool turns acidic after a couple years and creates havoc on you engine gaskets. it actually eats away at them like cancer. Now you might want to know do you have to use Dex-cool. The answer is No. But in order to use the old green coolant you must flush the coolant system completely as you can NOT mix green and orange coolant or it will gum up your coolant system.

How do I avoid problems on my new gaskets ?

Have your coolant changed every 2 to 3 years as age is important for this and not so much mileage.

GM Dex-Cool/ Intake Manifold Gasket Class Action

NATIONWIDE SETTLEMENT REACHED IN GM/DEX-COOL CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT
On March 20, 2008, the California Superior Court granted preliminary approval to the class action settlement reached with General Motors in the GM/Dex-Cool class action lawsuit. This settlement affects people who purchased or leased a “covered vehicle” anywhere in the United States other than Missouri. A separate settlement has been reached for those who purchased or leased their vehicle in Missouri, which will offer the same benefits but will be separately approved by a Missouri court.

The lawsuits were filed on behalf of owners of General Motors vehicles, which were factory-filled with “Dex-Cool” coolant. In summary, the lawsuits alleged that Dex-Cool degraded certain vehicles’ intake manifold gaskets and other engine sealability components, and that in certain other vehicles, Dex-Cool formed a rusty sludge, clogging the vehicles’ cooling systems and causing vehicles to overheat.

Terms of the Settlement:

You may be eligible to receive between $50 and $800 in cash reimbursement under the settlement if you have paid for a covered repair by May 30, 2008, and if you submit a claim by October 27, 2008. If you paid for multiple covered repairs, you may be eligible to receive multiple cash reimbursements provided you submit a separate claim for each repair. Continue reading »

Hooting or Whistling noise.  Owners of some 2005-06 Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators with dual a/c systems may hear an irritating hooting or whistling type sound from the rear of the passenger compartment.

According to Ford, the noise occurs most frequently when the vehicle is being driven with the front a/c on, the interior cooled, the rear a/c off and the blower motor speed set its lowest setting. A defective rear expansion valve has been identified as the likely source of the noise. Installing a new-design TXV (Part No. 6LiZ-19849-B) into the re3ar HVAC case should put the problem to rest. Should take about two hours for the part to be replaced.

I have a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP that on the drive home loss power steering. When home notice reservoir was empty. Added fluid but fluid is leaking out on passenger side of undercarriage. Any thoughts?

 Answer:
I would say that either a hose or the rack and pinion is leaking. There are two service bulletins that may apply to your issue. I would contact the manufacturer to see if these apply as it may be covered under warranty and at no cost to you.
