Calling all church members!!
We will once again canvas nearby neighbor hoods in an effort to spread the Gospel and invite our neighbors to come to church. We will also be inviting people to come to the Christmas Cantata. Remember, if you are unable to walk and pass out the invitations, you still can take part by participating in the prayer service, occurring at the same time. We hope you will make plans to attend. There will be no evening service that night.
Just a reminder that the midweek service during the week of Thanksgiving will be held on Tuesday (November 20) instead of Wednesday. We will also be having Master Club on Tuesday evening at its normal time.
Also that evening, we will enjoy a pie social! That’s right: you read that correctly. Everyone bring your favorite pie and we will all share a slice!
