Pastor Jones Is Coming Home

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.

Church Bulletins

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.

Toyota Prius Brake Noise – 2004-2007 – Hybrid

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.

Dex-cool – How to avoid problems in the future

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.

Whistling Noise – Ford Truck

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.

Regulations on tire pressure

By September 2007 all new automobiles below 10,000 pounds sold in the United States will be required to incorporate a direct pressure measurement for each tire. The driver must be notified if any tire is under-inflated by 25% or more than the rated placard tire pressure.

Now that it is 2008 every single car that is sold in the United States must have a direct pressure system for each tire. It turns out the government deems the people to stupid to be able to tell if there tire is low, so now you have to except this addition on each vehicle and also pay for it. This increases the cost for both the manufacturer and consumer. And if the system fails, that’s right, it will cost you again. 

Each sensor that fails has a minimum cost of $100.00 each ( part only ). Also, most systems are set to be sensitive with in 3 PSI. So if you live in an area that changes from hot to cold in different seasons, you may be subject yo have an additional light show up on you dash in the spring and fall top let you know things might need looked at.
