CONGRATULATIONS to Howard and Bev Nunnikhoven who will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Thursday, October 27!  

WE EXPRESS our Christian sympathy to Anne and John Maas in the passing of Anne’s sister, Mary Kudsk, last Saturday, October 15. 


SUMMIT HOUSE PROPOSAL: A question and answer session on the proposal to use the SHINE house as a Summit House will be held immediately after today’s service. A letter of explanation was put in your church mailboxes last week. Extra copies are available in the narthex. We will vote on the proposal next Sunday, October 30. 

SHINE will meet tonight from 5:30-7:00. 

THE DEACONS have placed a devotional booklet in your boxes for use in preparing for World Hunger Sunday (November 6). For families with children, we have also included a list of giving ideas. Peter Fish are being distributed to Sunday School students today and are available (in the narthex) to adults as well. These Peter Fish will be collected in 2 weeks on World Hunger Sunday.  

THANK YOU for the gift cards, thank you notes and expressions of appreciation and to those who served coffee and donuts last week. It is a blessing to serve alongside each of you. ~Pastor Bryan, Elaine, Pam, Marv and Karen and Sherry.
