This Week’s Need to Know – 10/12/2017

We have some exciting things happening in the kids ministry at Big Woods.  This Sunday, we are expanding our kiosk check-in system to include all children that are in nursery and preschool.  Parents will be able to walk through a simple process that checks kids in and gives them and you a matching sticker to be used when it comes time to check them out.  This provides a layer of security and peace of mind for you the parent.  We want you and anyone that entrusts their children with us to both feel and know their kids are in safe hands at Big Woods.  All children’s ministry volunteers have been instructed only to allow kids to go with parents that have the matching id number sticker that corresponds with the sticker that the child has.  Don’t worry, we’ll provide everything you need and have people to help walk you through this process each Sunday.  All kids, including those in nursery, will check in in the hallway before going to their rooms for Sunday school/Children’s church.  Any questions can be directed to Pastor Josh.

Autumn Night
This Sunday is the last day to sign up for this year’s Women’s Autumn Night.  This is a great night of spiritual growth, fellowship, workshops, and more.  This year’s Autumn Night will be on Friday, October 20.  Check-in begins at 6PM and the event ends at 9PM.  Click here to learn more and to sign up online.

Trunk or Treat
If you are willing to decorate your trunk and give treats to the children in the Castanea neighborhood, please sign up downstairs in the Fellowship area.  If you are not able to participate, you can still help by providing a bag of candy.  Candy donations can be placed in the designated container in the Fellowship Area.

Church Clerk
Our annual church business meeting is scheduled for Sunday, October 29, at 6PM.  Traci Fotorny, our current church clerk, will be stepping down this year.  We are looking for nominations from the body for our next church clerk.  Here are the requirements from the bylaws that a nominee must meet:

Member, 18 years and older, in good standing
Must be a member for minimum of 6 months

Duties will include the following:

Maintain church roll

If you know of someone that meets these qualities and would benefit the body of Big Woods by serving as our next church clerk, please submit your nomination to Pastor Josh.  All nominations will go to the elders and after prayer and discussion, a nomination will be made from these nominees to the body for affirmation at a later date.
