October 26th News and Notes


SMA update

All the funds from the SMA walk have been calculated and sent in.  The total collected online, from One Great Hour of Sharing, and the SMA walk was $6490!  This is more tops what we were able to collect last year!  Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Consecration Sunday and Heritage Potluck

October 29th will be Consecration Sunday.  After church, we will gather together and fellowship together for a meal.  This year, we are returning to our Heritage Potluck.  Please plan on attending and bringing a dish you identify with or is part of your heritage.  You can sign up here.

Bible Study

Our adult class continues on Mondays from 7:00-8:30.  The class is “TOO BUSY NOT TO PRAY,” and is for men and women.  It meets Monday nights, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the church, ending November 27th.  Please register on the clipboard on the narthex table. You do not need purchase the book.

Creating Chrismons

On November 19th, we will have an intergenerational activity during Sunday School.  We will meet together and make Chrismons for the Hanging of the Greens the following week, learning the difference between ornaments and Chrismons, as well as what they mean.  For those who are interested, we will go to “On the Border” for lunch afterwards for a time of fellowship.

Greening of the Church

The Greening of the Church will be November 26th after church.  We will have a soup supper as well.

Gingerbread Houses

On December 10th, we will have a Christmas activity for all ages!  We will meet at 5:00 and build gingerbread houses.  The cost will be $5.00 per house kit, as well as a bag of candy to share for decorating.  Pizza will be provided.  Sign up is required!
