Our Christian Sympathy is extended to Murray & JoAnn Prinsen in the loss of their son, Michael. We pray God will comfort them in their time of bereavement. 

Congratulations to Tim & Bethany Swart on the birth of a baby boy, Noah Dean, born on October 10th.

Thankful for the opportunity to serve 48 families during the October Drive Up Food Distribution last night.  All families got a cartload full of food! Thankful for our morning crew who unloads the delivery truck and our evening crew who packs boxes and works the distribution. The November/Thanksgiving pickup will be November 10th from 6:00-7:00 PM. As always, if you are in need of a little extra help, we hope to see you there, and if you know of someone who could use a little extra help, please encourage them to come, or better yet, offer to come with them!

We are in need of turkeys for the November 10th Drive-up Food Distribution.  If you are interested in providing a turkey, please sign up on the Children's Ministry Board outside of the church library.  Turkeys need to bein the chest freezer in the church kitchen by Sunday, November 8th. Thank you!

It was great to see and hear our kiddos on Wednesday night for Bible Class. We were thrilled to have 73% of them know their scripture memory verse.

House of Praise:  Please remember, kiddos will meet in the narthex after the memory verse, and will return to the narthex for pick-up at the end of service.

Parents of children 3years old through fifth grade.  Please check your inbox for the weekly at home resource that includes an activity, video link, and music video link. We pray this resource makes walking alongside your child(ren) in the faith process a little easier.
