The Adult Sunday Class #1… will be starting a new five-part video series this morning, by Ray Vander Laan, entitled, “That the World May Know: The Mission of Jesus.” Enter the chaos. In John 17:26, Jesus says: “I made known your name to them, and I will continue to make it known…” In this 14th volume of That the World May Know, you’ll deepen your understanding of this passionate revelation to a broken world God longs to redeem. Discover how Jesus triumphantly made God’s presence known on Earth, and how he asks you to do the same—bringing God’s shalom to the chaos of others.
Adult choir practice… The choir will practice on the following Wednesday evenings at 7:45 pm, October 16th & 23rd, and will sing during the October 27th morning worship service. Come join us, as we prepare to sing to the glory & praise of God and enjoy each other’s fellowship in Christ.
New Mission updates… from Brandon Haan, Ross & Ellen Errington, and Paul & Liz Meiners are on the Missions bulletin board in the hallway by the Fellowship Hall entrance.
Operation Christmas Child: Regarding items that have been dropped off—washcloths and soap are in good supply, also lots of socks in various sizes. Looks like we could use more notebooks/pads of paper (they need to be flexible or sized to fit into the boxes.) Please drop off any school supplies ahead of the party date—it helps me out with organizing! Some great gifts have been dropped off and it will be exciting to pack the boxes on Sunday, November 3rd, at 2:00 pm. Any items/gifts for this project may be dropped off at the S.S. bulletin board area or you can bring them to the party. Please continue to pray for the children who will receive these gifts.
