There are flyers on the table in the foyer for a fundraising dinner at Bob Evans for Tabitha’s Storehouse (a ministry of the National Road church in Wheeling—a pantry for household and hygiene items). Information is on the flyer.


On Wednesday, November 26th, we will be having our annual Wednesday Thanksgiving devotional. There will be no individual classes.


During the month of November, we are being challenged to memorize & meditate on Matthew 22:36-40 together as a church.


On Sunday mornings at 9am and Wednesday nights at 7pm we have Bible classes for adults and children of all ages. These classes are a great opportunity for you and your family to grow in the knowledge and understanding of God’s word. We hope you’ll join us!

Jay Rodak and Tim McKeen will be leading the Wednesday night adult class through a study of Galatians.


On Sunday evening, November 23rd, we’ll be having a dinner to celebrate all that God has done for us this year. The church will be providing the meat, so bring some of your favorite holiday dishes! Because we’ve been so richly blessed, we want to be a blessing to others as we seek to love our neighbors. With that in mind, we are beginning to collect items to give to Tabitha’s Storehouse (a ministry of the National Road church in Wheeling), so bring some donations with you to the celebration.

Tabitha’s Storehouse distributes personal hygiene and household items that are not covered through WIC or food stamps. Needed are: items for babies and nursing mothers, such as diapers, diaper cream, wipes, tear-free shampoo and soap, q-tips, baby lotion, baby oil, baby powder + items for personal hygiene, such as sanitary napkins/tampons, tooth brushes, tooth paste, dental floss, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, triple antibiotic cream, & band-aids + household items such as toilet paper, trash bags, foil, paper towels etc.


If you do not currently receive our weekly announcement email, and want to be on the list, please give your email address to Joyce or Brad.


The Shepherds have submitted the following names to be considered for the additional work of the deaconship. They are:

             Darrin Clark,

      Any concerns or objections should be written down on a signed letter and given to one of the Shepherds no later than Wednesday, November 19th. The Shepherds want to thank the congregation for their input and prayers through this process.


With winter approaching, and the potential for hazardous roadways, we want to be sure we have everyone’s telephone number and email addresses correctly on file.

There are copies of the current calling tree on the table in the foyer next to the bulletins. Please take a look to make sure we have you listed, along with the correct telephone number. If there is mistake, or you name is not currently listed, please fill out a contact card and give it to Brad or Joyce. We use the calling tree when we need to make a change or cancellation in our worship gatherings.
