It's College Cookie Time!
We will be sending our first care package of the year to our college students on Sunday, October 17th, just in time for Halloween. If you would like to bake cookies or send any treats, such as individual packages of popcorn, pretzels, Chex mix, candy, etc., or anything else you think they might like, please contact Nancy Trent by email at Tonyponcho@aol.com. Please provide your name, what you plan on donating, and your best contact number or email. I do not know how many to plan for at this time and Covid-19 could change our plans at a moment’s notice. Please bring your items to the kitchen on Sunday, October 17th before 10:30 and be sure to label them: “FOR COLLEGE KIDS”, so they do not get mixed up with the goodies for hospitality. Our students really appreciate that we are thinking of them while they are at school, so THANK YOU in advance for volunteering to provide goodies for them.
The next seniors luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, October 19, at 11:30am in the Activity Center. Soup and drink will be provided, but we ask you to bring your favorite sandwich. The speaker will be a volunteer serving with the American Red Cross. Lynn Wetz has recently returned from Louisiana helping others recover from the hurricane damage. She will share with us her stories of folks trying to survive and to rebuild in that part of the U.S. Mark your calendar and plan to join us for lunch. See you there!
The Community Blood Center will be at Sulphur Grove on Saturday, October 23rd in the Activity Center from 9am-1pm. If you are eligible to donate blood, please call 937-461-3220 to make an appointment. Any other questions, please contact Dave Hunt. Thank you!
The annual Charge Conference will be held on Wednesday, October 27th at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary. All are invited to attend the meeting and have a voice. Please remember, only selected Church Council members have a vote.
Coming Soon - Trunk or Treat!
On October 30 from 2-4pm, we will host our second Drive Thru Trunk or Treat. We’ll have cars decorated along the parking lot, for attendees to drive by to see & wave to, and then each child will receive a single “goodie bag” at the end.
We had a lot of fun last year, and need your help to make this year even better! Of course, we’ll need all kinds of candy, but we would also like to see at least 25 cars participating this year. It doesn’t have to be complicated – the kids just want to see your smiling faces!
Do you wish to honor or remember someone with a live floral arrangement that would be placed on the altar for a designated Sunday? You can order online below, at the kiosk in the Gathering Area, or by using an envelope found either in the pews or on the information table in the Gathering Area. Your flowers may be taken home with you following the 10:45 service. The cost is $25 per arrangement.
Thank you – Altar Committee
