UPCOMING EVENTS: MARK YOUR CALENDARS
***November 2, 2017 – The Associational Senior Adult Event is scheduled for Thursday at McCarthy Baptist Church. The meal will be catered but reservations must be into the mission Center by Oct. 30. Call the Mission Office at 233-3504 if you are planning to attend. Special project for this meeting is Grand Oaks Building Project.
*** November 5, 2017 – Daylight Savings Time ENDS. Before you go to bed on Saturday night, set your clocks BACK one hour. You will get one extra hour of sleep and still get to Sunday School and Worship on time.
*** November 18th, 2017 – The Men’s Breakfast @ 8:00am. Come join us for great fellowship, food and bible study. You won’t want to miss it! Bring your sons, family and friends; there is plenty of room.
*** Pastor James has called monthly ministry (committee) meetings for the second Sunday of each month after the morning worship service. This is the time to share with other committee members about what we are doing and to be on the same page about happenings in the church life. A representative (or more) from each elected how each committee needs to be present at these meetings to report
*** We need to restock the food pantry to be able to donate Thanksgiving baskets in November and Christmas baskets in December. Bring items that can be used for a Thanksgiving (or Christmas) meal as well as food staples and toiletry items we normally need.
*** ATTENTION!!!! The Children’s Ministry is in need of help during the morning worship time. Tammy Auxier has put a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board for help each Sunday until the end of October. Also a sign up sheet for help with snacks/drinks for the children during Children’s Church. This is such an important ministry for the children and will be a big help for Tammy. She will have all the sessions prepared for each Sunday. PLEASE PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER HELPING WITH THIS VERY IMPORTANT PART OF OUR CHURCH MINISTRY.
***Anyone who would like to fill a shoebox or two on their own may pick up a shoebox & instructions from the church foyer. They will need to be filled and brought back to the church by the first week in November.
NOTE :The W.M.U. ladies are NOT collecting the aluminum cans anymore due to the lack of someone to take them to recycling. Also the library can NOT take anymore donations of books since they have run out of room to shelve them. Many thanks for the donations to each of these ministries.
REMEMBER: We will continue to save Best Choice labels to be turned in to the church office or give them to Shirley McKnight, with this money going to missions.
