Summer Quarter Teachers, please return all reusable class literature to the table outside Brad’s office.


If you wore a costume during this summer’s VBS and have not returned it yet, please launder it and return it to the rack outside Everett’s office.  If you are planning to work again next year, you can keep your costume.


This coming Wednesday, Brian Games will bring our adult summer series to a close with the lesson “Go Into All the Nations…The Diversity of Ministry” as he brings the summer’s series in focus in one lesson.


Summer is quickly coming to an end which means our college students are leaving for college.  So we can stay in touch with them throughout the school year, please turn in their college addresses to Joyce Slatt so they can be published in a bulletin in the near future.


Some cans are still available in which you can save your loose change to help support the children who live at Potter Children’s Home in Bowling Green, KY.  The cans are on the table in the foyer.  Nov. 13 is the deadline for returning the full cans.

Some think the Bible is too hard to understand or that it’s not meant to be understood.  We believe, however, we can know the Lord’s way and be blessed for knowing it.  In next week’s lesson, “Not Too Hard,” Phil Sanders will demonstrate how understandable the Bible really is.  The program can be seen locally every Sunday on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7, at 7:30 a.m.
