Welcome to all visitors.  You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you.  We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Please note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. Also the church has a wheelchair located in the back of the sanctuary for anyone who wishes to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing. LARGE PRINT HYMN BOOKS ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE USHERS.


The November/December Upper Room and Pockets devotional magazines are now available. Suggested contribution is $1.00.


Students needing community service hours should get the forms from their school so that their work may be credited to them for helping on December 12 at the Community Health Fair. For more information contact Jennifer Turnbull at 954-684-5843.


Please bring canned goods any time for the food pantry, it needs some help.  There will be a special time of bringing forth canned items along with other fruit that God has bestowed upon us on Harvest Sunday, November 22. Some of these goods will be used to make Thanksgiving Baskets by the UMW for distribution in the community. A real blessing to many. But let us keep a constant look out for our food pantry so that weekly those who need it most may receive something from us.


Salty Service cards are in your pew pockets. If you have done at least one hour of service this week please take one out and place it in the offering bag. This can be within or without the church, any time you help someone else.


Thanks to all who brought much needed baby supplies for the Traveling Bassinet. We have been asked to keep the bassinet for another month. So if you have additional supplies or if there is anyone who has things which they were unable to bring in October, you have the opportunity to bring them throughout the month of November. For more information about this program go to or call 954 765 0550.


Also, all are invited to carry invitations to our church, and to our special events like the upcoming Community Health Fair in December. Do this in your neighborhood by encouraging those you know best, indeed, those who know you best, to join us for worship, mission and the justice ministries we are about.


Prayer Concerns: If you need prayer during the week please call Grandmas Hyacinth Robinson at 954-435-4036 and your concern will be put on the Prayer Chain. After you call her, for emergencies or to report someone in the hospital please make sure you call Pastor David Range at the office 954-989-4711 or on his cell 954-495-6104.
