GROWING THROUGH FELLOWSHIP (GTF): This Wednesday, October 28, we will be decorating pumpkins. Please bring your own pumpkins. We will be practicing all protocols so there will be no messy carving, painting or glitter but many fun items to stick on and paint pens. Hope to see you there. Reservation forms will be available before worship (on the narthex table); place in offering plate. You also may call the church office (534-0088) by noon on Monday. The meal begins at 6:00 p.m.
The purpose of GTF during this time is to gather midweek and have fellowship and share in God’s Word through an activity intergenerationally. The session will continue to revisit until the end of the year. However, please understand that this is simply a bridge and temporary measure until further notice. Thank you.
YOUTH GROUP starts on Sunday, October 25, at 6:00 p.m. in the Youth Room (upstairs in The Centre).
THE SACRAMENT OF THE LORD’S SUPPER will be observed in our service of worship on Sunday, November 1, utilizing prepackaged, disposable elements.
POINSETTIAS will beautify our sanctuary this Advent season. If you wish to purchase a plant please complete an envelope (on the table with the bulletins) and place in the offering plate or send to the church office. Flowers are $15.00 each; deadline is Sunday, November 1.
THANKSGIVING BOX MINISTRY: We are starting to move forward with plans for the Thanksgiving Boxes. Instead of having the box distribution on the Sunday just prior to Thanksgiving day, we will have a pick up day on Saturday, November 21st. The change from delivery to pick up necessitates changes in our procedures. The deadline for your donations will be Wednesday, November 11th. As in the past, we will add to each box a $20 gift card to be used for a turkey or a ham.
IN-PERSON WORSHIP has resumed in the sanctuary. The video will be uploaded following the service, as we are not able at this time to livestream.
THE SERVICE OF ORDINATION AND INSTALLATION OF DEACONS AND ELDERS is available on our YouTube channel (dated September 17, 2020).
