The Women on Mission are sponsoring a Chili Supper and Dessert Auction on Tuesday, October 22. Chili will be served from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. You may bid on the cakes from 5:30 to 6:45 and pick them up after the bids are over. Suggested donation is $5.00 per person, children 5 and under eat free. The proceeds will go to the mission trip to Kenya. If you can donate a dessert for the auction, please bring it to the church by 5:30 on Tuesday.

We will be ordaining Chris Turner and Jeff Carson as deacons on Sunday, October 20 in our 6 p.m. service. All ordained men are asked to meet at 4:30 p.m. in the Annex for the Ordination Council.

Dr. Jay challenges all hikers! On Thursday, October 24, we will meet at the church at 8 a.m. to head to the Great Smoky Mountains. We will take the trail to The Chimney Tops. Bring water and a sack lunch. (The hike is 4 miles round trip.) We will stop on the way home for supper. All participants are welcome. Sign up on the registration form if you plan to hike. We will hike somewhere else if the park is still closed.

Downtown Block Party – Thursday, October 31. We will have a photo booth and we need volunteers to help.  This is an outreach from our church to the community and enables us to establish contact and communication with people we would probably not reach any other way. If you can help, sign up on the registration form.

In order to better accommodate those people in our church family with special needs, the Building and Grounds Committee recently designated the closest two parking spaces to the back door of the Annex for vehicles occupied by people with disabilities.  In addition, on Sunday mornings, two additional spaces along the front of the Annex also will be designated for special needs.  Parking for the disabled can also be found along the south side of the Activity Building and just north of the Welcome Center.

The GA’s are collecting Campbell’s soup labels for the Smoky Mtn. Children’s Home. Collection boxes are in the Welcome Center and Annex.

The GA’s will be participating in the Walk for Life on Oct. 26. Be sure to sponsor a GA. Sponsor sheets are in the Welcome Center.

We are offering a 6-week Men’s Bible Study on Tuesday nights beginning October 29 from 6:30 to 8:30. The study is from Ecclesiastes called “A Life Well Lived”. Cost for materials is $8.00. Sign up on the registration form if you would like to attend.

Thank You

Thanks so much to the Men on Mission who worked so hard to tear off my deck and build a new deck with a ramp. Now, with help, I can safely go outside again. – Jo Stewart
