QUARTERLY BUSINESS MEEETING – November 29
TRUNK OF TREATS
Wednesday, October 25, 6:00-7:30pm – We need people and their trunks (or tables) to pass out candy to kids that come to the event. Place donated candy in the tub in the main hallway by the office door. We had over 200 kids attend last year so please give as much as possible. We also need people to serve hot dogs and chips to the families that come. The food will be available for workers starting at 5:30pm. We ask that workers eat and have trunks (or table) set-up by 5:50pm. Make plans to be here and please sign up at the front table in the sanctuary.
Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate the birth of our Savior than thru music! If you would like to be a part of a small choir that will be doing some special music on Sundays throughout December, meet Pastor Cole in the Multi-Purpose Room on Sunday, October 29, immediately after worship.

Sunday, November 5 – Join us as we pack shoeboxes with items donated throughout the year and pray over them as they are prepared to be sent to Samaritan’s Purse that will then distribute them to families in third world countries that need to hear the Gospel. There will be dinner at 5:30pm and we will start packing at 6:00pm.
