MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND PLAN TO HELP
March 24, 2018 1:00—3:00 pm
Tammy Auxier, the Children’s Ministry director, invites all to come help share the real meaning of Easter with our children. Jesus died for our sins and loves us very much. This is a hard thing to focus on when we are surrounded by the Easter bunny, chocolate, egg hunts, and more. This year we will continue using this holiday as an outreach opportunity to share the gospel thru an Easter Egg Hunt, Story & Activities on March 24th from 1:00-3:00pm.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR IF YOU CAN HELP. Thanks in advance.

*** 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. would like to thank everyone for their donations toward Operation Christmas Child, they were able to send 40 generously filled shoe boxes to needy kids around the world. They will begin in January to collect items for next year. Thanks again.
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.
