    American Red Cross Blood Drive Thursday, Nov. 12th

    1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall

    Our annual blood drive in memory of longtime church member Bonnie Litwiller is approaching. The American Red Cross has set our goal at 25 pints. Sadly, we lost Bonnie to a rare blood cancer, but the need for blood continues. Let’s do our part. Sign up for an appointment to give or help beginning Sunday, Oct. 25th. A table will be set up in the entrance. See chairman, Dianne Elliott or call Julie in the office. We will need greeters, refreshments and strong backs to help set up and take down. Thanks in advance.


    Bake Sale!!

    The youth will be hosting a bake sale in connection with the One Stop Shop hosted at our church on November 14th. This is a great fundrasier for us, and this year all funds will go towards our NYE trip to Walt Disney World! So, we need lots of goodies to sell. If you would like to make some yummy treats, we would love your help! Please have all INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED items to the church by noon on Friday, November 13th. We also need lots of people to buy, so don’t forget to come see us and get a treat…or two! Thank you!!


    The New Thanksgiving Basket Program

    Here is an overview of this year’s Thanksgiving Basket Program with a few changes from previous years. We hope these changes will help our church deliver baskets of food that will serve our recipients well and will be easier to assemble and deliver. Here’s how it works:

    1. By the end of this month, Mission Board will have a list of those eligible to receive a Thanksgiving basket. This will help us determine which food items and how much should go into each basket depending on how many members are in each family.
    2. Mission Board will write up one large list of all the non-perishable items needed to fill all of the baskets and acquire the items at the best price by taking advantage of sales and buying in bulk. We will then deliver these items to the Fellowship Hall where we will set up our own “Thanksgiving Basket Grocery Store.”
    3. On Sunday, November 15, the congregation is invited to the Fellowship Hall after the church service to “shop” from our store and fill a basket or bag. Each basket or bag will have an attached shopping list with the items to go in it.

    Mission Board be accepting monetary donations to cover the cost of the non-perishable items and also to purchase the perishable grocery items for the baskets like turkey, milk, bread, etc. By working together, all the baskets will be filled and ready for delivery on the following Sunday after our church’s Thanksgiving dinner!


    Thanksgiving Feast

    Please help us celebrate Thanksgiving by joining us for our annual Thanksgiving Feast! We will gather in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, November 22nd at 10:30am. Impact and Pursue youth groups will once again be hosting this meal for our entire congregation. We will prepare the turkey, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and rolls, however, we are asking for a little help with the other “sides” and dessert. There is a sign-up sheet in the Fellowship Hall if you would like to bring an item. There is also a sign up sheet for those attending. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING A DISH TO ATTEND!! We just need to know how many turkeys we need to fix! =) In the past, this has been a wonderful day of celebration and joy for our entire church family. We hope you will join us this year, to share our many blessings!


    Hanging of the Greens

    You are invited to join the Worship Board on Nov. 29 at 10:15 for the “Hanging of the Greens”. Decorating our church for this joyous season is fun for the entire church family. We need many hands both young and old to complete this task. We are not planning to have a potluck after the decorating is finished, since everyone has just gone through a week of cooking and eating. Un-Hanging of the Greens will take place January 3, 2016 at 10:15. Please plan to join us for this event.

    CORE Dinners

    Our 5th year of CORE will begin on September 23rd…the week AFTER Pumpkin Festival.  We will continue to provide a meal on these Wednesday nights.  It is a great service to our busy families, not to mention a great opportunity for fellowship with our church family.  The meal will be served from 6:00-6:30pm.

    We are asking for volunteers to host these meals.  All it takes is a few people to work together… family, a group of friends, a church board.  The meals can also be a simple or fancy as you like: mac ‘n cheese, chicken nuggets, tacos, spaghetti, or even ordering pizza or sandwiches.  There is a sign up sheet in the fellowship hall or contact Jenna Buffington or Amy Jones with any questions.  Thank you!
