For American Baptist Students
Dear ANTS American Baptist Students,

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the final waning days of
summer. I've just sent you some information that the denomination asked
me to pass on to you about a November meeting. Please read it carefully
and respond as needed. This information is particularly important to
those of you who are planning to be ordained and/or about to finish your
M.Div. degrees.

Please note that this information is time sensitive, requiring
registration by November 4 of you plan to attend. If you have any
questions about the event please contact one of the "Face to Face"
coordinators (contact information is listed in the packet I've mailed).

Take good care,

Nancy Nienhuis

Lord of the Rings Movie Marathon
Fri. 8/25 & Sat. 8/26
6-10pm Fri, 2-10pm Sat.

Celebrate the end of summer with a Movie Marathon!

J.R.R. Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" is one of the finest sagas ever
put to the screen. The Film and Television Fellowship will be showing
all 3 movies of the Trilogy (extended Director's editions) - the first
on Friday evening (pre-movie pizza optional) and the second two starting
at 2pm on Saturday, with a break in between for dinner, etc.

Let's bring the summer to a close in style!

Crib Needed
Dear Community Members,

We have a new resident with us in Fuller, fresh from Korea. Mr. Jae
Keun Lee's family will be joining him shortly, and they have a 26 month
old son who will also be with them. They need a bed for their son. Do
any of you have a crib or very small bed that you're not using? If so,
please contact Amelia in the Housing Office at Thank
you for helping us extend ANTS hospitality to this new family!
