Thank you to Jacob Steiger and Bob Vander Haak for agreeing to be nominated.  

WEDNESDAY MORNING COFFEE: What a pleasant surprise to have gentlemen join us for the Wednesday morning coffee time. We invite more ladies and gentlemen to attend and be a part of stimulating conversation and fresh coffee. 

WORLD HUNGER: Thank you to everyone who brought in a Peter Fish or made a donation to this year's World Hunger Sunday offering. Through your gifts we were able to raise over $2300 for World Renew’s sustainable approach to tackling the problem of world hunger. To God be the glory! 

THANKSGIVING OFFERING: As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, it's time to consider how we can generously give to support ministries and causes that further God's kingdom. In your mailboxes today you'll find a list of suggested causes along with an envelope for your Thanksgiving offering gifts. Please prayerfully consider how you can give and return your gifts at our Thanksgiving Eve service. Extra offering envelopes are in the back of church should you need one. Thank you! -The Deacons 

PASTOR STEVE will be on vacation November 21–December 2. Please contact your district elder if a need arises.
