What Veterans Day mean to me?
It is my belief that our lives are good and easy because of the men and women of our military, those who are making or have made sacrifices on a daily basis. We don’t see the sacrifices that they make; the toll that it takes on them and their families. I wish everyone was aware of what they’re doing or have done for us. Freedom is not free, someone is paying the price and we all need to be grateful for that and pray for them. To all those that are serving or have served, your sacrifices are appreciated! THANK YOU for what you are doing or have done.
The Worship Committee invites the congregation to participate in appreciating our military.
On Sunday, November 6, a basket will be placed in the narthex filled with toy soldiers in recognition of Veteran’s Day. Please pick up a soldier, take him home and put him in a special place as a reminder to say a prayer for all those that have served or are presently serving in our military.
On Sunday, November 13, the children and youth will be packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child immediately after the offering. This way families can stay after worship for lunch and make the tray ornaments for the hospital. We are planning to fill 20 boxes. If you would like to contribute something please see Renee Mathews.
Have you heard about our new Bible Study on the first Sunday of every month? It’s called One. If you missed our first meeting that’s ok we will be meeting again the first Sunday in November and it is not too late to begin. Here is the description for this Bible Study:
ONE- A Small Group Journey Toward Life-changing Community, first Sunday of every month. Life is better shared… especially in a Christ-centered community. This 8-week, small group study is designed to lead participants into meaningful interactions with fellow Christians. Group activities and lessons help participants lift each other up, push each other forward, and send each other out. Sundays at 4:30 pm, child care provided.
