Kids' Christmas Musical: A Not-So Silent Night

All children are welcome to come and join us prepare for our Christmas musical, A Not-So Silent Night, that will be performed on Saturday, December 10th (following our Christmas Banquet). This musical is a lively, fun telling of the story of how the Shepherds caused such commotion following their encounters with the angels and Baby Jesus.

We will be practicing after worship service on the following Sundays from 1:00-2:00pm Nov. 13, 20, 27 and 4th. We will order pizza for lunch for the kids that stay (if everyone could contribute $2, that would be great). Our dress rehearsal will be Friday, December 9th at 7:00pm.

Not only do we need children to be involved, but we need youth and adults! Many of the parts can be played by someone of any age - so if you would like to be part of this production - please join us! We will also need help with our costumes and set. Get involved, pray for us and plan to attend the musical at 6:30pm on Dec. 10th.


Operation Christmas Child

Join us as we work towards showing God's love through Operation Christmas Child! Boxes are available in the foyer.

Please return your filled box to the table in the foyer by November 13th. We are also collecting items for the boxes that our Ladies' Morning Out will be assembling. Items must be new.

Some items for shoeboxes could be: small stuffed animals, children's socks, toothbrushes, pencils, notebooks, small toys.

We are also collecting monetary donations for items for the boxes and to cover the $7 shipping cost per box.

If you have any questions, please see Cathey Chisholm. Let's make a difference this Christmas!

Financial Update

October Summary:

Donations: $10,256

Praise God, we met our budget this past month!

This influx of cash was used to pay off September invoices, as well as keep us up to date for the month of October. As was discussed at our recent congregational meetings, we have been forced to dip into our building reserve fund to avoid being delinquent on utility & other building maintenance invoices. As of the end of October, we have depleted the reserve fund by $1,450, leaving a balance of $48,473.

Please continue to pray for our church finances and the leadership team as we seek to follow God’s leading. We also challenge you to pray about your individual circumstances and how you can be obedient to God.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
Malachi 3:10
