Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series – This week we will spend our time in worship honoring and remembering those mentors in our lives as we commemorate All Saint's Day. A day that is often over-looked, we will use our time to look at how the examples of those saints we know help drive us today and help us to find encouragement in our lives. Bring a friend and I hope to see you there!

2. Bible Study - We are continuing 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 presumptuousness and losing our spiritual balance. 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. If you would like to come, just show up! It is never too late to join and we would love to see you there!

3. 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.

4. Block Party - Our Annual Block Party is tomorrow, 11/5, from 2-5pm.  Come on out, have some fun, and bring a friend.  This is a great way to introduce people to who we are and allow us to love on them for a spell.  This is our chance to tell our community that we are here, that God loves them, and so do we.  I encourage you to come on out and show your support for our family and spread God's love to those that we will encounter.  I hope to see you there!

5. Commitment Cards - Three weeks ago we concluded our annual focus on Stewardship. If you would still like to turn in your commitment card you can bring them to the church office, or simply drop them in the plate on Sunday morning. I encourage all of you to prayerfully consider how God is calling you to respond with not only your treasure, but your time, talents, gifts, and witness as well.

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon!
