Sat. Nov 11, 2-4pm. Grab Your Gloves!
Yard Prep Needed for Tent Arrival!

This Saturday! We need many hands to help us prepare the Manse property for an upcoming Termite Tenting. We need to remove shrubbery and leaves from around the home’s perimeter – so bring your work gloves! This tenting is part of our maintenance contract to keep the house in good working order so that we may begin to rent it.
Last week, a small but mighty team did a lot of the work, but more is still needed. (We have oak trees; they may be green and beautiful, but they sure drop a ton of leaves!)
Sun. Nov. 12th following Worship: Families on the Playground & Stewardship Lunch for All in the Conference Room.
There’s food, fun, fellowship, information and a Bounce House! Breakfast yummies on the playground and soup and sandwich lunch in the Conference Room where we can all watch the fun on the playground. Don’t miss the chance to mingle and munch!

Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up. So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all, but especially to those who belong to the family of faith.”     – Galatians 6:9-10     
It’s Wednesday this month!  Young Adults Gather
We’ve moved the day and date this month due to Thanksgiving. Bring a friend and join us for good food and fellowship!
