ALL SAINTS SUNDAY - On the weekend of Nov. 4-5, we will remember by name all of those in our congregation who have died since last All Saints Day. Feel free to call the church office to give the names of other friends and loved ones to be included in the prayer of thanksgiving for their lives.

REVERSE TRICK OR TREATING - October 31, 6:30 PM: Meet at the church to do some reverse trick or treating. Bring a bag of candy and come join us to hand out candy door to door in the neighborhood. We will be passing out candy and one of our church brochures to homes near the church. A way of letting others know we are in the neighborhood and here to serve those who are looking for a place to worship. We did this last year and it was a lot of fun. Dress in your favorite Halloween costume if you wish! Hope to see you there. It will be a fun night.

STEWARDSHIP - Stewardship Weekend is November 18-19 – Members should have received their 2018 pledge card in the mail by then, along with a small self-addressed envelope. Extras are available in the Narthex. Your 2018 offering goal is between you and God. We ask you to place your completed pledge card in the self-addressed envelope, then bring this sealed envelope to any service the weekend of November 18-19 and place it in the pledge box (which will be located in the center aisle). For those unable to attend a Stewardship Weekend service, the pledge box will be available in the Narthex through the first weekend in December. Your sealed pledge will be returned to you unopened at this time next year (please make sure your name is on the envelope). The stewardship committee hopes this will strengthen our growth as passionate followers of Jesus, with stewardship focused on the freedom we have in Christ to be generous with everything God has given us.
