Sunday, September 28th is Back to Church Sunday.  Come back to church if you haven't been in a while!  Invite your friends, family, neighbors.  We will have a special service in worship time (9:30), Sunday School (10:45) and then a carnival at 4:00, a cook out at 5:00 and a special live concert at 6:30 by The Sweet Potatoes direct from California (Rick and Laura Hall and Kelly Macleod) - you don't want to miss it!

The Annual Bazaar  is Saturday, October 11th (there will be no luncheon this year).  Come on out from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for "A Season of Celebration".  You'll find unique and original crafts, our Country Store with lots of baked goodies, a wide assortment of Daystar Greeting Cards and Rada Knives, our always popular Jewelry table and (new this year) the He-brews Coffee & Tea Corner.  All proceeds go to missions.

Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  The cost is $3.00 per individual or $8.00 per one household family.  This week's meal is Turkey and Dressing, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy or Sweet Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables, Cranberry Jello, Hot Roll and a variety of cakes.

Trunk or Treat will be here at the church in the back parking lot from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, October 31st!  If you wish to help with a trunk, call the church office.  Thank you!

We have a large selection of greeting cards for sale in the church office. Each box is just $3.50 and most boxes contain 12 cards and envelopes.

A security system has been installed in the church.  It involves cameras and a button to be pushed at the East and West entrances.  Persons wishing to gain entrance to the church during office hours will be admitted through a buzzer system.  Push the button, step back a foot so the camera can see you, wait for a response and then the door will be unlocked for you.
