Family Promise: We are very excited to be hosting homeless children and their families again in October as part of our mercy ministry, Family Promise. The families arrive the evening of October 21 and stay until the morning of November 4. Our efforts assure that homeless parents continue to work and that their children continue to go to school. This ultimately leads to Family Promise helping the families get into a home again. You can contact Andreas VanDenend (a.vandenend@gmail.com) with any questions. Or speak to Fred Lundy or Tammy and Troy Bleeker about signing up for a shift. One of them will be in Gordon Hall on Sunday after the 10:55 a.m. service.


Nicaragua Dinner: Sunday, October 21 - Plan now for a pulled pork and bun, creole cabbage salad and macaroni and cheese dinner after church next Sunday. Tables will be set up to eat in or you can take your dinners to go. The suggested donation to benefit the Nicaragua Mission Trip is $7.50. Please order your dinner by calling the church office at 378-1527, emailing Bev Vloedman at dvloedman@aol.com or filling out the tear-off slip in Sunday’s worship guide and placing it in the offering plate.

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.
