Following the meeting, everyone is invited to the fellowship hall for the baked potato lunch, which is a fundraiser for our youth.
Women on Mission
Women on Mission will meet Sunday, October 27. All women of the church are invited to participate. At this meeting we’ll be preparing our Operation Christmas Child boxes to be sent out.

Trunk or Treat

Each year we welcome lots of kids from the community to our parking lot for treats, fun, and a chance to build connections with families in our area. Come decorate your trunk or tailgate, bring some candy, and help us provide a safe, family-friendly alternative to trick-or-treating! Sign up on the bulletin board.

Come out for free pancakes at this brunch sponsored by the deacons! We especially want to honor veterans and their families on this Veteran’s Day weekend.
Operation Christmas Child
Pick up a box from the foyer outside the office, fill it with gifts, and be a part of spreading Good News, Great Joy. See the September/October newsletter for complete details. The deadline to return boxes to the church is Sunday, November 3.
All kids are invited to join us on Wednesday nights! Each week we study a Bible lesson, work on music together, and end with a music game. This fall we’re exploring the scripture behind some of our favorite Christmas carols. Haran Kids meets on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. in the music room.
A/V Help Needed
We’re looking for more audio/visual operators for our Sunday services. If you’re interested in helping, please see Anna Ruth. We’d be glad for you to sit in on a service and see what’s involved.
