WEEKLY OCTOBER 13


It’s time to get ready for forTrunk orTreat! Trunk or Treat is coming up soon! What a great opportunity to connect with our community! This year, it’s really simple. Our goal is to have at least 100 trunks filled with candy! So... we are going to need LOTS of candy! There are two ways to help make this a great event for the kids. Sign up to create a trunk OR bring a BUNCH of candy! 100 - 30 gallon tubs full of candy is our goal so we won’t run out! Go by a local dollar store and fill up a tub, or get a partner to split it with you! Then bring it to the education hallway or to the connection center out front. Generosity always makes an impression - let’s show our neighbors we really care!

HELP!

Pray for the many lives that may be touched during the event as we celebrate this day that the Lord made. Contact - Shellie Jones || hathakeeper@ec.rr.com

GriefShare, Surviving the Holidays - It’s difficult when loved ones pass away; more so, as the holidays approach and especially when this is the first holiday without them. Many people have gone through several holidays and still struggle with not knowing what to do or how to cope. To help, we invite you to a 2-hour seminar on Saturday morning, November 16th, from 9am to 11am, in the A-Building. The cost is five dollars which covers the cost of the material. Please, prayerfully consider this time and sign-up on-line beginning October 20th, or contact the Pastoral Care office at 910.791.6053. Thank you and may God comfort and strengthen you in the coming days!


The flowers are given by Bobby & Gail Jackson. On October 16th, Toby will be 40 years old! Being a parent is scary from the start. You pray you do the right things. You give your love and guidance, hoping to raise your children to follow in God’s path. You work to influence them in a positive way and pray you’ve guided them in the right direction and to make good decisions. “We still don’t know exactly what we did to deserve you in God’s eyes, but we give thanks to Him every day for you. We’re so very proud of the wonderful, respectable, funny, and honorable man you’ve become. Having you for our son and nephew is a pure delight and a wonderful pleasure.“ Happy 40th Birthday Toby! Love Dad, Mom & Aunt Judy!
