Notices for October 17, 2021

REFRESHMENTS are served after the 8:00am Service only.

TODAY’S HOSTESS: Denise Yoreo.           

FROM THE MISSION BOARD:  Please continue to pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!  We will be using the donations contributed by our church family to shop for items this week to fill shoeboxes at our packing event next Saturday.  However, please continue to pack shoeboxes and pray for the children receiving them as our collection date of October 31st is rapidly approaching!  If you are in need of an OCC shoebox to fill, they are available on the table in the upper fellowship room.  With everyone’s help we are sure that we will meet our goal of 150 shoeboxes that will create 150 gospel opportunities throughout the world!

Thank you, Denise & Dave Yoreo, Deb Eddy, Travis Poudin, Christine Pericolosi
