A CLOSER LOOK
 
Adopt-A-Room Drive: As we do each year we are having another drive to secure furnishings for our room at My Fathers House. We supply bedding, linens, etc. for a homeless family moving into the shelter. After they leave they may take these items to help set up their new residence. We will have a sign up sheet in the lobby for two weeks for you to select an item to purchase. Please bring them back by November 22 and put into the bin marked for My Fathers House. For more info see Heather Borin or Doris Sauer.
 
Cold Weather Gear: We would like to remind you that we will be collecting cold weather items again this Fall and Winter. In November we will be collecting hats, scarves, gloves and socks (women's underwear would be most appreciated at Rosehaven).  Our Kids will be collecting the donated items during service each Sunday in November.
 
Kids Worship: Each Sunday until December 13th, our Preschool and Elementary Students will be learning a new song to present at our Christmas Service on December 20th.
 
Thunder Update:  Our Middle School Students had a great time at Thunder. Please ask them about their weekend away! And thank you for keeping them in your prayers.
 
All Night Party: Middle and High School Students, join us November 20th from 7pm-8am. Cost is $35 if registered by November 18th and $40 at the door.

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. 
Malachi 3:10  NIV
