As you plan your giving for next Sunday, remember that since next Sunday is a “fifth-Sunday,” all the contribution will go toward the expansion of our facilities.


Remember to save your loose change to help with the support of the children who reside at Potter’s Children Home in Bowling Green, KY.  Take one of the cans available on the table in the hallway and begin saving your change in it.  The deadline for returning the cans will be Nov. 10.


Please give your college students  name and college address to Joyce so we can publish in a future bulletin.


Your old eyeglasses (especially ones for reading) are needed for various mission points.

We are still collecting cartridges from Inkjets and Faxes to help with the support of the children who reside at the Shulz-Lewis Children’s Home.

“Box Tops for Education” and “Campbell’s Labels for Education” are needed by Mid-Western Children’s Home. Only the UPC label is necessary.  To save time and shipping expense, please cut the label out before placing them in the box in the hallway.

If you want to help with any of these ongoing ministries, please bring the items and place them in the appropriate containers on the table in the hallway.


We rejoice greatly in the grace of God, but most folks do not know that grace is not only a gift but also a teacher.  When people take seriously all that God has done for them, they will learn a new and wonderful way of life.  Next week’s lesson by Phil Sanders is, “What Grace Teaches”.  The televised program can be seen locally every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
