All Church Wednesday
October 10 through November 7 • 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
All Church Wednesdays will begin with a Church Potluck Dinner at 6:00 p.m. Then, each succeeding week of the five Wednesday night meals will be cooked by our team of church culinary masters. We would like dessert donations to round out the meal. Suggested donation is $3.00 per person or $10.00 per family. The focus of the conversation afterward will be on America's Generations and Faith. Each night will focus on one generation, including a short presentation by Pastor Don, a time for story telling about our own generations, and a look at local demographics through the lens of generations and faith perspectives.
Active Seniors Luncheon "All About Tea"
Thursday, October 18 • 11:30 AM • Community Room
The English have made famous their legendary Tea & Crumpets along with timeouts and intervals of the day to stop and drink tea … but there may be a stronger tea tradition elsewhere in the world. Join Pastor Don and our own Nate Gruber, once a tea buyer for an elite Minnesota tea company, as we learn about traditional Chinese tea culture. This gathering will feature tea and lunch (and coffee if you must!) Sign-up in Fellowship Hall today.
Women's Fellowship BUNKO
Monday, October 22 • 6:30 PM • Community Room
Invite a friend and bring a snack or appetizer to share. For all ladies of the church...and easy to learn dice game! A donation of a dollar or two to cover the cost of prizes is appreciated. Sign up in Fellowship Hall.
Picture This - A New Portrait!
Sundays, November 4 & November 11 • After both services
Ken Michaelchuck, our resident photographer who loves taking pictures which bring out the best aspects of your personality through his portraits, will again be taking pictures on the following Sunday mornings: November 4 and November 11. Ken will set up shop in the Community Room. By getting an updated photo taken, you keep our digital directory current. By taking a picture this time of year, you just might find you have taken a great picture for your holiday greetings as Ken loves to share the digital file or make a copy of the photo for you. Be sure to come to church ready to get a new picture taken on November 4 and November 11!
Thanksgiving Dinner & Auction
Sunday, November 18 • 4:00 PM
On Sunday, November 18 at 4:00 p.m., our church will again host a traditional Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. A sign up in Fellowship Hall for the food items needed to make it a great feast, and to indicate whether you are able to attend will be in Fellowship Hall in the next few weeks. To make the dinner as welcoming as possible, it is the joy and privilege of us all to invite and encourage everyone to attend. What can you do
to help? During fellowship time over the next month, ask others if they are planning to attend. If not, encourage them to join us and let them know why it’s meaningful to you or your family. Come with a thankful heart, ready to show gratitude to the Lord for the privilege of gathering around the table with our church family – those who’ve been here for many years, as well as first-time guests!
After the dinner, we will also encourage everyone to stay and take part in the annual Dessert Auction. In addition to the fabulous desserts, you will have an opportunity to bid on other auction items. This is a fun part of our time together, with many folks bidding outrageously generous amounts . . . for the joy of giving and to benefit our ministries.
