Announcements & Coming Events
WORSHIP TIME HAS CHANGED TO 10:00 A.M.!!
Thursdays ~ 7:00a.m. The Men’s Breakfast Bible Study is up and running! The men meet every Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. to study the Book of Acts. Due to current mandates, there will be no breakfast before the meeting. Please note there will be no Men’s Ministry November 26.
Fridays ~ 11:30a.m. The Women’s Lunch Bible Study meets every Friday morning at 11:30a.m. The Lunch Bible Study is also studying the Book of Acts.
UNION GOSPEL MISSION~ MEAL…This is just a reminder that we are still doing meals for the Union Gospel Mission and the list of who is scheduled is on the church’s website under “Who’s doing What?” then “Union Gospel Mission”. I still call people with reminders the week before the Tuesday we are scheduled.
With the COVID-19 situation, they are having to do meals a little different, so I call them each month to check on the time the food is needed. They have been preparing boxed or bagged dinners to hand out to their clients. Because of that, they need the foods earlier in the day. Since the time can change, I will let you know when I call with the reminder what time your part of the meal is needed. Thank you! Diana Hill 360.964.0024
