This Week’s Need to Know – 11/01/2018


This Sunday’s Text:  Philippians 1:15-18

November is upon us and that means it’s time for our annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox drive.  It’s really simple.  Grab a shoebox.  Fill it with toys, coloring books, and other fun things for either a boy or girl.  Not sure what to put in a box?  Check out the gift guide at the Samaritan’s Purse website,   If you need a shoebox, we have several in the lobby at church.  Also, there is a cost of $9 per box for shipping.  If you could help us with shipping costs, designate your gift to “Operation Christmas Child” in the memo portion of your check or give online.  You can also swipe your credit/debit card at the SideKick giving kiosk in the lobby.  All proceeds will go towards the shipping costs.  Our goal this year is 200 boxes.  Each box we send has the potential of making an eternal impact on the lives of kids and families around the world!  Boxes need to be turned in to the church by no later than Sunday, November 18.

Don’t forget, Sunday November 4, is our regularly scheduled business meeting.  The meeting starts at 6:30 PM.  As usual, there are several offices that need a vote from the church body including deacons, Moderator, and a trustee.  There will also be an important financial update and the 2019 budget will need to be approved.  If you need a copy, it is available in the church lobby.

This Sunday is time change Sunday.  Time to fall back.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back on hour Saturday night before you go to bed.

We’re working on getting the things fixed that you mentioned a few Sundays ago in our fireside chat.  Soap dispensers have been put into the bathrooms for kids that can’t reach the ones mounted to the walls.  Adjustments have been made to the stall doors, but there is still a little work to be done on those.  Also, hooks have been ordered and will be put lower on the stall doors in the women’s restroom.  Thanks for the feedback from everyone.

Please make note of an important room change this Sunday.  The nursery will no longer be located in the cry room.  It will now be located in the corner next to the check-in kiosks (see map below).  The 4/5 grade Sunday school will be in the church conference room.  The cry room will now be available during any of our services.
