Get the most out of the service by asking about our special listening devices. Pick up one in the back or see an usher for help.   If yours isn’t working properly, don’t be bashful about raising your hand to ask for assistance.

November 27th marks the beginning of Advent 2011.  Our morning worship services will commemorate the season with Advent candles, readings, banners, and special messages.  This year’s theme is Advent of the Evangel”.  Over the next month, we’ll consider how the Christmas stories fit within the unique themes of each of the four gospels.  Let’s prepare our hearts together for this special season.

The church’s financial statement for October 2011 is posted for review in the office over the copy machine.

Check out “Ask the Pastor” on Wednesday, November 16th at 2:00 pm (TCT Network and Dish Network channel 26, DirecTV does not carry the program), as Derek tries to make good use of this special opportunity.  “Ask the Pastor” is a live call-in program with a panel of five area Senior Pastors answering viewer questions about life and the Bible from the Bible.

Be praying with the Nominating Committee as it meets to prepare a slate of candidates to be considered for office at the Annual Meeting in February 2012.  To submit names for consideration or to make any other comments pertaining to the nominating process, see Olive, Fred or Derek in the coming weeks.  Pray with us during this important time in our church.
