Covenant Keepers Christmas Project
Covenant Keepers is scheduled to distribute Christmas cards and wrapping paper to the residents at Parkview Apartments on November 8, at 4:00 p.m. This is a group project. Please plan to attend.
Winter Survival Kits
We are putting together winter survival kits for the homeless. Each kit contains a blanket, hooded sweatshirt, gloves, hat, socks and toiletries. Our goal is to make 100 kits at a total cost of $1500. Success of this project depends on the generosity of God's people. If you would like to contribute, please write the word "homeless" on your check or envelope. See Mike Stawski for more information.
SOME OF OUR MINISTRIES:
Our nursery worker teaches your children in an age appropriate way, preparing them for the time when they are old enough to graduate to Children's Church. The nursery is located down the long hallway and is available for children from birth—5 years. You can bring your child back anytime after 9:30 a.m. (The cry room is also available for those who would like to stay with their child.)
Pastor will pray for and dismiss the children to go to Children’s Church after the praise and worship part of the service. Children's Church is for children who are/will be in kindergarten and older.
Weekly Prayer Meeting
The church doors are open every Monday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. for you to come and pray at your own pace and in your own way. Prayer requests can be placed in the prayer box located at the front of the platform. These requests will be kept in the prayer box for six weeks. Remember, if you want your request or praise report printed in the bulletin you HAVE to sign your name and check the “yes” box.
Praying for the Lost
Don’t forget to pray for salvation for the names posted on the “Prayer Wall” in the foyer. If you have someone you would like the church to help you pray for their salvation, write their first name only and place it on the board.
Feeding the Homeless
We are scheduled to provide lunches for the homeless on the 2nd and 4th Mondays. We usually make these lunches on Sundays before Sunday School or after the morning worship services. The next date is October 27.
Women’s Sewing / Crafting Group Time Change
This branch of our Women’s Ministries meets most Tuesdays around 1 p.m. We make items that we give to others (Widows Ministries Center, Crisis Pregnancy Center, homeless shelter, etc.) No experience is necessary! See Jackie Harris for more information.
Holy Grounds Café
This ministry encourages fellowship as we have refreshments such as coffee, danishes, etc. We meet every Sunday morning in the church cafe, beginning at 9:00 and ending at 10:20, just before our morning worship service.
Men, join us for our next monthly Men’s Breakfast, Sunday, November 3, at 7:30 a.m. Bring a friend with you.
This group, for ages 50 and up, meets monthly, normally, on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Typically, one month we meet at the church for a potluck dinner, and the next month we meet for an outing and/or meet at a restaurant. Our next meeting will be Saturday, October 19, at 5:00 p.m. at the home of Sharon Menges. Please see Sharon or Mike & Penny for more information.
Prayer Requests/Praise Reports
We understand that not everyone wants to have their prayer request
printed in the bulletin. Therefore, we will usually only publish your
request if it is written out, you have signed your name, and have checked the “yes” box on the prayer request form in the printed bulletin (or have indicated such through digital means).
These requests will only be listed for six weeks. PLEASE update your request if you would like it to remain longer.
