Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes – November 12. This is the final Sunday to bring your shoeboxes to the church. I just think this is a great way of outreach to children all over the world, as we fill and send these shoeboxes through Franklin Graham’s organization. Children will hear the gospel by a local pastor, missionary or a gospel tract, when they receive your shoebox. Be sure and accompany your box with a check to cover shipping. Thank you, in advance, Rufus and Velma Stevens, for your faithful work with this wonderful ministry.
Veterans Day Service is this Sunday, November 12. Donnie Smith has a wonderful service planned for us. Please let us know if you will stay for lunch after the service so we will know how many tables and chairs to set up.
Thank you, Terry, for allowing me to lead singing last Sunday and this coming Sunday. I thought the choir did a marvelous job. It was good to have Kathy Thaggard back and singing with us. She said that is something she really misses in Montana… the organ and piano and a choir to sing in.
We are postponing the Day Trip to the WWII Museum in Hattiesburg scheduled for next week, November 13. We will reschedule it for next year.
We had to cancel the Cheerful Hearts luncheon because JOY Singers had cancelled rehearsal and a number of them come to our luncheons and there were several ladies on the cruise who would normally be here for the meeting. We will definitely reschedule Dr. Futral for next year.
Final 2018 Calendar Planning meeting is Tuesday, November 14, following JOY Singers rehearsal. If you have dates and activities that you are planning for 2018, please let us know next week.
