Operation Christmas Child – Due Sunday, 11/12
Once again this year we will be packing shoeboxes for the Samaritan Purse Ministry – A longstanding mission to bring the hope and joy of the message of Jesus Christ to children around the world. We will have cardboard shoeboxes available, but it’s best to purchase sturdy plastic ones because they will last much longer. Information (including the increased cost) is available on the Mission / Outreach bulletin board.​


​Mission Fair – Sunday, 11/12
The Mission Fair will be November 12. Consider giving locally or globally. Details TBD.

 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?"     [John 14:1-3]

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”(Ps. 122:1)
