Pastor David has started a new course on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. created for those who would like to explore the meaning of the Christian faith. It is especially good for those adults thinking of joining the church but it is open to everyone. The Alpha course has been held all over the world and covers these topics: Who Is the Holy Spirit? What Does the Holy Spirit Do? How Can I Be Filled With the Spirit? How Can I Resist Evil? Why and How Should We Tell Others? Does God Heal Today? What About the Church? How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?


Our “Home Grown” Christmas concert is right around the corner! If you are planning to perform, say a poem, do a skit, etc., please tell Fay Harley, Donna Simms or Pastor David as soon as possible, so we can begin to prepare for a really outstanding event. Thanks!


Please remember you can dedicate bulletins to the memory or honor of a loved one for a minimum contribution of only $10.


Lost and Found. A pair of glasses with a chain for securing it around the neck, was found in the sanctuary.  Possibly they were left two weeks ago or during the recent funeral. Please call the office if they belong to you.
