Second Saturday Men’s Breakfast Oct 12 7:30 am.  For Oct after breakfast we plan to help with the Fall Clean Up Day.  So bring your clippers, rakes and gloves to help spruce up the grounds.  There is also a need for cleaning inside the church.

 Movie Night! Our next movie Night will be Friday October 18th. We’ll start at 6:15pm with pizza and salad. The movie will start at 6:30. This fall’s movie feature is “All Saints”. All Saints is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.

The Young Family Ministry will host a fall event that includes pumpkin painting, games, video, and a snack. The event will take place on Saturday October 19th at 3:00pm here at the church. Those interested should let Jason Bloom or Pastor know the number planning to attend.

 Operation Christmas Child fills shoeboxes with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies as a way to reach children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  The boxes are shipped outside the US to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease.  After receiving the boxes, the children are invited to enroll in a 12-week discipleship program.  Please consider joining in this mission by packing a box, donating items, or with monetary donations. Each box costs $9 to send.  We packed 80 boxes at our packing party, but will need at least $500 to send all of the boxes packed this year.  All the info you need as well as the shoe boxes are on the table in the front of the church.  Filled boxes are due back to church no later than Nov. 17.  Thanks so much!

Women’s Bible Study meets Thursdays at 10 am in the Fellowship Hall.  We will continue our study of the book of Isaiah.  All women are invited.  Questions?  Call Lori Rolwood.

Prayer Chain.  The Prayer Chain is ready to receive your prayer requests. Simply call Barbara Greenberg to start or update a prayer. Prayers are by request only and are strictly confidential.  You can also join the prayer chain by giving Barbara your e-mail address or phone number. Please pray with us.  Pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Ephesians 6:18
