Musical Talents Needed!

We are looking for volunteers to provide music during our worship services.  If you know of anyone who might be willing, please see a member of the Worship & Music Committee (Rev. Mike, Peg Heywood, Mark Barie, Sharon Smith, Norma Bower, Cassie Carlsen or Susan Boyle).  This can be anyone who likes to sing, play an instrument or anything musical!

Next Bible Study November 16

This past week we begun our Bible Study with a discussion led by Rev. Mike on the beginning of Revelation.  About 15 people attended and we are looking forward to even more going forward!  Our next meeting will be Wednesday, November 16th.  We will be having dinner at 6 PM with the Bible Study to follow from 6:30 until 8:00.  This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of the Bible.  If you have a topic you would like to be discussed see Kim McGiveron.

Hope to see you there!  Bring a friend....all are welcome!

Harvest Potluck--November 6th

Next Sunday the Mission Committee will be holding a Harvest Potluck following the Worship service.  Before things get busy with the holidays take the time to enjoy a time of fellowship with your church family.  Just bring a dish to pass—paper products, drinks & desserts will be provided.   We hope to see you there!

Thanksgiving in a Box

Again this year the Mission Committee will be putting together Thanksgiving dinners for a few local families in need.  As we did last year we will be taking monetary donations to provide the meals.  Next Sunday, November 6th, there will be a donation envelope in your bulletin that can be used to make a donation.  The Mission Committee will do the shopping to get the boxes ready and Bob Carlsen will deliver them to their recipients.  Any help you can give us with this worthy mission is greatly appreciated!

Holiday Happenings--November 5, 2016

Next Saturday is Holiday Happenings!   Our Craft & Vendor show will be held from 9 AM until 3 PM.   Be sure to come and start your Christmas shopping and also stop by the bake sale & Chinese Auction.  This year will be our biggest event yet as we have many new vendors.  Breakfast & lunch will be available for purchase—enjoy a delicious bowl of homemade chili or soup!  All profits from the event will benefit our general fund so we hope you will come by and support our event!   Be sure to tell all of your friends and family about this fun event!  If you have not already made a donation to the Chinese Auction and would like to, please see Roberta Tracy, June Shafer or Susan Boyle.  Any new item or gift card would be greatly appreciated.  Also, bake sale items are needed!  Aggie Smith will be running the bake sale so please see her if you are able to help out.  Any cookies, cakes, pies, breads, etc. that you can donate will help to make it a big success!  Thanks in advance for your help!
