Unity Service on October 30th:

  There will be a special service on October 30th at 10:00 am.  Sunday School will be at 9:00 am.  The service will take on a little different shape as several members involved in Epiphany ministry (ministry to prisoners) will model some of the faith building activities that occur on an Epiphany weekend.  There will be a fellowship luncheon provided after the service, where everyone will have a chance to fellowship with graduates of the Epiphany program.

Gospel Gang

 will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 6-7:30 pm.  Please bring a couple packs of Tic Tac mints to help make our favors for Christmas Caroling. Hope to see you there!

All Saints Sunday

 will be celebrated at both services on November 6, and we will name and honor our loved ones that have passed away in the last year.  Everyone will also have an opportunity, if they choose, to come forward and light a candle in memory of any loved one that has passed.  Feel free to invite others to join us for this special service to honor our beloved Saints that have gone before us.

Haiti Mission Trip:

 The Haiti Mission Trip Members are seeking out "church" clothing of any size for the people of Haiti.  Haitians will only go to a church service if they are dressed in "church" style clothing such as skirts, dresses, and collared shirts. Please no sport jackets as the weather of Haiti can get rather warm.  Also, if anyone has the hard, durable, large suitcases they would like to donate for the mission trip it would be appreciated.  Please place these items in the North or South Vestibule and label Haiti Trip.  We will be collecting through the month of February.  For more information please contact Julie Klopfenstein, Traci Myers, Steve and Iva Lenhart, Chelsea Frederick, or Pastor Hollis.  Thanks in advance!

Stewardship Pledges –

Only 59 Stewardship pledges have been received to date.  If you have not completed your time talent sheet, please pick one up at the back of the church, complete it, and place in the basket.  It takes a lot of people to run this church, and everyone’s pledges are important.

Women's 5-Week Bible Study

Join us on Saturday mornings November 12 to December 10, 9-11 a.m., for Christian fellowship and Bible Study.  We will be studying Priscilla Shirer's “Breathe”.  A light breakfast will be served.  Workbooks are $10 and will be ordered on October 31.  Call or text Rhonda Wildermuth (937) 726-0301  if you would like to participate. 

Wernle Collection

During the month of October, the WOC will be collecting items for Wernle Youth and Family Treatment Center.  The list of items needed are on the shelves in the back of the sanctuary.  Elsa Stengel is the chairperson, and any questions can be directed to her.

Offering Envelopes:

  If you have not had offering envelopes during 2016, and would like to have them for the upcoming year, 2017, please contact Sandy in the church office to put your name on the list.  If you do not use offering envelopes, you will not get a statement for tax purposes at the end of the year.

Operation Christmas Child

Filled shoeboxes are being accepted between now and November 13.  These will be sent to poor children, both in America and internationally.  Any size shoebox can be filled with items such as school supplies, hygiene items, small toys, candy (no chocolate), and gum.  Please do not pack violent gifts such as toy guns or knives.  Mark your box for a boy or girl, wrap it if you choose (wrap the lid separately so boxes can be checked at the processing center), and place in either vestibule.  Contact Shirley DeWeese with questions (937) 441-8413.
