This Week’s Need to Know – 10/05/2017

Ok, I know we’re not even close to Christmas, and no, we’re not trying to race against all the stores to get to Christmas first.  However, if we want to continue to bless kids around the world with Christmas presents – and most importantly, the Gospel – then we’ve got to get busy now!  I’m talking about the annual Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child gift drive.  Last year, we were able to send over 200 presents – along with a Gospel message – around the world and into the arms and life of a child.  You can help us by purchasing gifts and dropping off your donations downstairs in the Fellowship Area.  If you’re not sure what to give, visit the Samaritan’s Purse website for some great suggestions.  Donations need to be dropped off by no later than November 5th.  Thanks to all, and to all a good night.

Adopt a Missionary
For the month of October, you and your family will have the opportunity to adopt on of Big Woods’ missionaries or missionary families.  Pick up a missionary support card for you and your family either upstairs at the table in the hallway outside the sanctuary or downstairs at the table in front of the missions bulletin board.  Commit to pray for your missionary every day for the month of October.  The support card also provides ways you can give to the missionary as you feel led, and even how you can give to encourage them through a letter or care package.

Women’s Autumn Night
Make sure you’re signed up for the upcoming Autumn night for women ages 14 and up.  Brochures with additional information (including registration forms) are available on the table in the front of the sanctuary or downstairs in the Fellowship Area.  You can also learn more and register by clicking here.
