Come join us for an evening of fun, food and fellowship with our church family and our neighbors. If you picked a post-it note, thank you for your willingness, but please disregard. Instead, refer to the chart below and bring a healthy sized portion to help serve our church family as well as the community for this Thanksgiving event.

Due to an accidental fire last Saturday, Pastor Andrew's and Sidney's garage burned, including his truck. The truck was not covered by insurance and is a total loss. We have learned this week that since the garage was a separate structure from the house, their insurance covers a small percentage of the value. Several men in our church expressed an interest in receiving a love offering for Andrew and Sidney and we will do that over the next Sunday or two. If you would like to participate, please designate "Andrew" on your check. Thank you for your generous contribution.

Special Announcements

 

 

The Annual All-Church Thanksgiving Dinner and Community Thanksgiving Dinner are being merged on Wednesday, November 25, at 6 p.m. in our Family Center. We are serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and need your favorite dishes brought in! If you took a sticky note from the pumpkin display in the hallway between the foyer and the family center with an item to donate written on it, please bring that item as well. Much help is needed. Please see Dara Cook or sign-up at a welcome center to help serve. Let’s celebrate God’s blessing with our neighbors as a church family.

 

Our Church Board has decided to follow the Nazarene Missions International calendar which names the first Thursday of each month as a day of prayer and fasting. We are designating every Thursday as our day of prayer and fasting. Please join us as we remain focused on Him!
