     On Sunday, November 4th our congregation will observe All Saints' Day, a day where we recognize the righteousness we are given by faith in Jesus, won for us by the gift of His precious blood. On that day, we will be having a Remembrance of the Faithful Departed, where we read the names of all our family and friends who have gone before us in the Christian faith in the past year (since November 5th, 2017). If you have a name of a family member or friend you would like included, please send it to Pastor or the church office no later than Sunday, October 28th.


Special Announcements: 

 -          Reminder about inclement weather and church functions: Our policy for bad weather cancellations has been to cancel morning Bible studies, etc. when local schools close. Evening meetings and events will probably continue, as long as road crews are out and a storm is not intensifying. Sunday services, as well as Advent and Lent midweek services, are seldom cancelled. However, do not attempt to drive if your local conditions are poor and you are uncomfortable driving in the weather!
