A Closer Look

 

Congregational Meeting: We would like to invite you to join us following service today for our congregational meeting. Lunch and childcare will be provided.

Book Fair: Today and Next Sunday November 6, family ministries is having a book fair! Looking for Christmas gifts for children in your life? Come check it out. We will have a table available with books and then a chance to order any that you would like to. Looking for great stories, devotionals for kids, Christmas stories, stop by our table in the lobby and take a look!

Thank you: We want to thank all who came by last Saturday to help beautify the church, it looks great.

Bell Choir: Christmas is just around the corner and for some, it means Bell Choir! We would like to get an idea of those who are interested in playing this year. You don’t need to have past experience, just a willingness to learn and make the practices. Please contact Phil: philhobizal@msn.com, or Call and speak with Shelby in the Office: (503)238-5950 if you are interested.

Thunder Update: Our youth group middle school students had a wonderful time up at Thunder last weekend. We learned about How God created us and how Jesus comes and meets us right where we are and carries us closer to him. Thank you for praying for us while we were at Thunder.

HEY! WHERE DID THE PLAYGROUND GO?!?!
No worries, we are replacing it! In just two weeks you and your children will be able to enjoy a brand new play structure. 

 

Weekly Worship Schedule: During the fall we will be having the gift of guest worship leaders. We are excited for the opportunity of having these talented men and women lead us in worship.
