Advent Study—Starting Wednesday November 8 after the 10:00am mid-week service, join us for the continuation of the study we started in Lent…”Because of Bethlehem”. Max Lucado is said to be a preacher with a storyteller’s heart. In his warm engaging style, Lucado weaves solid Biblical teaching with memorable messages. “Because of Bethlehem” has a short video and discussion period afterwards. There is no cost for the study—come and enjoy reflections on the significance of what happened in Bethlehem.
Can You Help? The Men’s Group is inviting parish volunteers to help them serve at Walton Memorial Turkey Dinner on Sunday November 12, 4-7pm. This is a great community service and the Walton folks in return help us with some of our events. Sign up in the Narthex today or speak to a Men’s Group member for more information.
Operation Christmas Child—It’s that time of year! We will again be sending shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts to children in need around the world. The boxes are available in the Narthex along with the information leaflets. The filled boxes should be returned to the church by November 12th so they can be delivered to the collection centre in time for delivery to the recipients before Christmas. Your enthusiasm for this project and your generosity are much appreciated.
Calendar reminder— another one service date coming up this fall is Sunday November 19 at 10:30am. We are having the music group, Infinitely More here. Come for a great service filled with inspirational music and stories.
Forward Day by Day—the latest edition of this great little devotional for the great price of $1 is in the Narthex now. Grab your copy today and enjoy some time with God.
