Concert for a Cause - Family Promise: The Gainesville Community Band, directed by R.

A free-will offering will be received to benefit Family Promise. Immediately following the concert is a spaghetti dinner in Gordon Memorial Hall. $5 per person; there is no charge for veterans.

Decorating the Sanctuary: Advent is just around the corner, so we are looking for volunteers to start the Christmas cheer. Everyone is welcome! Gather on November 19 at 9 a.m. to deck the church halls. Lunch is provided. If you have any question, please call Connie Shettler.

The Advent Workshop is Sunday, November 25 at 9:30 a.m. in Gordon Hall. Everyone is invited to start off the season with us! Enjoy pancakes and a great selection of crafts ranging from some of our old favorites to brand new projects. Please fill-out the slip in the bulletin and place it in the offering plate or contact the church office by Sunday, November 18 if you plan to make a Gingerbread Church to ensure we have enough supplies.

Free parking is available in our big lot on Second Avenue, in the grass lot just to the east of the big lot, and behind the Salon Syx building to the west of our lot.
