The Busy October
Fall is here. The clouds have come and dreary days are upon us. These days can be beautiful, but they can also be difficult. I pray that this autumn we can continue to grow closer as a church family through our many activities. Below is a list of events for October. Please be in prayer for these and invite friends to them
Tonight the teens are hosting the Community Dinner to raise funds for their mission trip! See you at the church at 6pm.
At 7PM tonight we will continue our study on prayer.
Saturday from 4-6 PM is the Trick or Treat Trail! If you want to help meet neighbors and pass out candy. Be there at 3pm.
Saturday Oct 16th will be a busy day. The Teens Pancake Breakfast starts at 9 am. Come enjoy food and fellowship.
At 10 am on the 16th the ladies will be taking a trip to the Hart Dunes followed by a farmer's market and a lunch together. On Friday Oct. 22 the teens will be heading to the 3 Mile project for the district lock in.
Saturday Oct. 23 the Prime Time ministries is hosting a Harvest Dinner at noon. The Prime Timers will be providing a ham, so bring a side dish to share! Saturday Oct. 30 is the TRUNK OR TREAT! please come prepared to decorate your car and welcome hundreds of neighbors. It will be a great chance to reach out to our neighbors. Sunday Oct. 31 is our Memorial Service. Theologians talk about the Church Militant and the Church Triumphant. The church militant is those of us who are alive, and the church triumphant are those who have gone before us in the Lord. The church believes that those who have died in faith are present with the Lord. They are Triumphant. In the Memorial service we will be remembering those whose faith has been passed on to us. We will be remembering our church family, but if you have family or friends who you would like to remember, this is a chance to do so. During the service we will have a candle lighting ceremony. If you want to remember someone, you can come light a candle and say their name in the microphone. If you would like to add one sentence like, "Jack Lucas, my grandpa, for modeling a joyful spirit." you may do so. We ask that everyone keep it to one sentence so that we can remember the many who have influenced us all. If you know before hand of someone you would like for us to remember, please send Pastor Ryan a photo with that person's name, date of birth, and date of death. We would like to put that information on the screen while we remember them. He needs this information by Oct. 24th.
