Chris Metcalfe is forming a choir for Christmas. If you would like to sing
for Advent & Christmas services, please plan to attend rehearsals on
Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 5, 12, & 19 – AND – please
speak with Chris after worship to let her know you will be coming.
The Deacons are collecting goodies for Christmas packages for those
serving in the military. If you would like to help, bring snacks in that we
can package and send out right after Thanksgiving with notes of
thanksgiving & encouragement.
When folks are home from the hospital or in the midst of grief or other life
transitions, we try to provide meals to lighten the load. Would you be able
and willing to make an extra quart or more of soup when you cook for your
family, or an extra casserole that we can put in the freezer and pull out when
needs arise? If so, just package, mark clearly, & put in church freezers.
The Memorial Prayer Garden is finished. If you would like to purchase a plaque in memory of someone to have placed on the rock, yellow forms can be found at the entrances to the sanctuary. The cost of a plaque is $100.00. It takes about 3-4 weeks to receive the finished plaques once the order has been placed.

"Each time, before you intercede, be
quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how
He delights to hear the prayers of His
redeemed people. Think of your place and
privilege in Christ, and expect great
things!" Andrew Murray
