November Memory Verse:
“The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, 'The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty.'" - Exodus 34:6-7a (ESV)
A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR:
There's a lot going on in this weekend in the life of our church, and a lot more going on as we look ahead to the month of December. I hope you'll be able to take some time to look through this Weekly Update and see if there are some ways you can serve alongside us. At the very least, we would appreciate your continued prayer support - specifically that the Lord would sustain us during this busy time, but more importantly, that He would bear fruit from all of our efforts.
See you Sunday, if not sooner!

PRAYER MEETING: Tonight!
Our weekly prayer gathering meets each Wednesday atin the Prayer Room. Please feel free to join us in studying Scripture and in praying for the needs of our church family. There is also a group gathering for prayer each before the service at .
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SUNDAY: This Sunday!
Our official collection and dedication Sunday for Operation Christmas Child is this Sunday, November 22. If you would like to pack a shoebox on your own but need a shoebox, please let us know! We have shoeboxes of all shapes and sizes to giveaway. If you need more information, let us know that too. On Dedication Sunday we'll bring our shoeboxes and offer a special prayer of dedication. On that same Sunday our monthly mission offering will go to Samaritan's Purse to help cover the shipping cost of the shoeboxes.
3rd SUNDAY OFFERING: This Sunday!
This Sunday we'll be collecting our monthly mission offering to support the ministry of Operation Christmas Child. Our church put together more than 60 boxes through our Carnival Night and the cost to ship each box is $7. Our goal is to collect at least $420 to cover the cost of these boxes, but anything beyond that supports the effort of Operation Christmas Child around the world. Thank you for supporting this valuable work!
