Women's Retreat Project
Dishman ladies, Thank you to everyone who made bags, donated money or donated items for our bags. I was able to fill the bags and drop them off to Embrace Washington last week so that children coming into foster care can receive these bags. The bags are filled with hygiene items, pajamas, small toys, books and notes of encouragement. Please continue to pray for hope and healing for the children in our community who are experiencing foster care.
Operation Christmas Child
Its Shoebox time! Please join us in filling shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child this year. Collection will run from now until Sunday, November 13th. Our goal is to fill 100 boxes!
There are shoeboxes that you can grab from our display in the back of the sanctuary or you can now do it online! Follow the link below or click on the picture above to go to Dishman's collection page. There you are able to purchase a box for $25 and choose what you would like in it. This is an easy option for those who may not be able to get out and shop, but want to participate.
If you want to go out and fill a box on your own you still can. Each box you donate is $10. This is a great organization that gives these boxes to children all over the world, which opens a door for them to spread the gospel with thousands of people!

Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Starting this Wednesday, October 12th at 6:30pm and lead by Yuri Belko. It is a study for men and women.
The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured by many. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different than us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible. In this expanded edition of Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. The author says, "The theme of this book is not how to read the Bible but how to study the Bible." He presents in simple, basic terms a commonsense approach to studying Scripture and gives eleven practical guidelines for biblical interpretation and applying what we learn.
Thank you to all who have contacted us to help in the children's department. Below you will find an updated list of where our needs are now.
Nursery: Lifegroup helper, 2nd Sunday worship volunteer, 5th Sunday worship volunteer (this is usually only once a quarter)
Toddler (2-4yrs): Lifegroup teacher and helper
5-7yr olds: lifegroup helper
If you would like to help please contact Tricia Harrison at 509-280-1390 (text only)
