“THE MINISTRY OF PRAYER – 6” – In view of all the “powers of this dark world” and “the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” working to divide us from each other and disconnect us from God, one of the most vital things you and I can do is to pray.
Don’t forget to “fall back” this Saturday night (October 31st). That is, be sure to set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed (otherwise, you’ll show up an hour early on Sunday morning!).
“Surviving & Thriving”
You are invited to write a devotional for our annual Advent Devotional Book. If you would like to participate, then just pick out a “Date & Scripture,” and sign up! 2020 has been a “different” kind of year for all of us. And so, as we celebrate our faith during the Advent Season, I encourage all of us to seize upon the theme, “Surviving & Thriving,” as we read Scripture together and share the stories of our experiences over the past year. We ask that all submissions for our 2020 Advent Devotional Book be sent to the Church Office by Thursday, November 19. Please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or, if you are unable to send an email, then please provide a hard copy of your Advent Devotional.
1. TWO Sunday Morning Worship Services: 10:00 and 11:00.
2. Please RSVP to the service you prefer: 10:00 or 11:00.

"Disciples Women" will meet on Monday, November 9th here at the church at 10 a.m. All women who have this time available are encouraged to attends.

Sunday, November 29th, after the last Worship, will some of you stick around to help us decorate the sanctuary for the Advent/Christmas season?
We have the Christmas tree to decorate; wreaths to put in place in the windows and on the exterior doors; and the garlands to be hung on the north and south walls (needing some ladder-steady folks to help with these).
It is time to make the sanctuary come to life for the Advent/Christmas season, and it always looks so beautiful when it is all done.
Wednesday Evening Bible Class!
Meeting @ 6:00 p.m. in our Church Sanctuary
THIS WEEK: Read pages 118-127 in Chapter 7, “The Feast of the Father”
How does believing the gospel “change” our lives? What does it mean to “experience” God and have a spiritual relationship in a material world?
Join us for these engaging conversations as we “listen” together in exploring the story of God’s amazing grace.
