Hurricane Relief: Many thanks to John Rodriguez and Gary Schwebach along with all of you who gave so generously to help the victims of the Hurricane in Houston. We are working hard now to make sure the supplies are delivered where they are most needed. Thank you so much for expressing the love of Christ in this tangible way.
October is Missions Month: You recently received a letter in the mail from Pastor John with the missions pledge card for 2018. This month, as we hear from some of our missionaries, prayerfully consider what God would have you give during 2018 toward our mission programs. We will collect the cards October 29. We rely on these pledges to meet our commitments supporting our missionaries and mission organizations. The cards we collect on October 29 are the basis for planning our missions disbursements for 2018.
Fall Bazaar & Bake Sale November 4: WM Fall Bazaar & Bake Sale is coming up in just 3 weeks. Sign up now if you would like to participate in the Men’s Chili Cook-off or the Bake Sale. There is booth space for only three vendors remaining, so if you are interested call the church office or contact Nikki Davis. The rest of us should mark our calendars for some early Christmas shopping, November 4, from 9 AM to 3 PM. We have a wide variety of vendors this year and we make some GREAT chicken salad so come for lunch!
Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party November 11: This awesome project is one small way that your family can touch the lives of children for Christ all over our planet. Plan now to join us for a Shoebox Packing Party at the church on Saturday, November 11 from 1 to 5 PM. You may begin bringing in any supplies you’ve been collecting next Sunday. Stop by the table in the foyer to find out just what kind of things are needed.
Meet & Eat Today: Hungry? The third Sunday of the month is already here and that means it is time for our monthly Meet & Eat. We will gather by the bulletin board in the foyer and head out to MCL Cafeteria in Carmel together. This is a great time to catch up with old friends and meet some new people in our church.
