CHURCH AUCTION ITEMS - The Church Auction this year will be on Saturday evening, December 7th. We are starting to accept new and like-new items for the auction. They may be stored in the closet in the Narthex or the storage room next to the youth room.
SOCIAL MINISTRY - For the month of October, with the holidays coming, we will continue to focus on the food bank.  Remember the cart is in the narthex.  A very small amount of food helps so many families.  Cans of vegetables, cans of meat, cereal and peanut butter go a long way.  Thank you, Jody.
