We’re collecting boxes for Operation Christmas Child at Guest Services in the Atrium, or they can be deposited in all kids Sunday school areas. Be sure you get a label on your box so you have a chance to throw a pie at Tim, Tanner, Dan, or Steve! Labels and brochures are available at Guest Services and in all kids areas.

Here, There & Everywhere

Getting To Know You

Tonight: Prayer for Our Nation

We will be just 16 days away from one of the most anticipated elections in years, so we are “gathering” to pray for our country. All are invited to attend as we lift up our leaders and our country.

Child Dedications

Sunday, November 13

Three reasons to dedicate your child: To present your child back to the Lord, entrusting Him to guide and protect them; to dedicate yourself to raising your child in a home that is filled with God’s love and guided by Biblical principles; and to allow the family of believers to dedicate themselves to love, teach, encourage, and pray as God gives them opportunity. To have your child dedicated fill out a Connection Card or contact the church Office at 223-1394.
