1. Preaching Series – This week we will celebrate Laity Sunday! We will be lead during worship by the laity of the congregation as we celebrate the vitality, the gifts, and the graces, that you all bring to our body of Christ. I encourage to come and see each other in action as you pray for us, preach to us, and lead us in song. I am sure it will be inspiring, refreshing, and so meaningful to us all. Bring a friend and I hope to see you there!
2. Bible Study - We have begun our Bible study entitled, “Yes Lord I Have Sinned But I Have Several Excellent Excuses” by the Rev. James Moore. Sin is something that affects all of us and this study will help us learn how to take ownership of our sin, be more readily able to recognize temptations in our lives that will lead to sin, as well as help us understand the hope and grace that is ours through Jesus Christ. Next week we will focus on the sins of overreaction and the sins of hostility. The class will run through November 10th and will be offered at two different times: 10:00am and 7:00pm each Thursday. The cost is free. If you would like the book, which is not required, it is $12. To register for this class, you can register on the website by clicking here - Bible Study Registration or contact the church office. It is never too late to join and we would love to see you there!
3. Pumpkin Patch - The pumpkins are here! And the patch is in full swing! If you would like to help there are many ways; reading stories to the children's groups; working a shift selling the pumpkins; and several other ways. We need everyone's help to make this a wonderful experience for all. Please see Roy Baugher or call the church office to sign up to help.
4. Pumpkin Patch Photos - Jennifer Walker is the new photographer for the Pumpkin Patch. Meet Jen at the patch: Fri. Oct. 21, 4pm-dark; Sat. Oct. 22, 4pm-dark; Sun. Oct. 23, 2pm-4pm. No sitting fee!

5. Christmas Gift Cards - If you normally buy gift cards for the holidays I want to invite you to consider buying them through the church this year. This is an excellent way for you to buy those cards for your loved ones and allows the church to raise extra funds, all at the same time. For a full listing of all participating vendors you can contact Carole in the church office.
Have a great weekend and I will see you Sunday!
