Announcements

The 2019 Advent season begins December 1st, two weeks from today! Our morning worship services will commemorate the season with candles, readings, and special messages. This year’s  theme is “TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY.” It will focus on the good news of Christmas—how through the incarnation, God draws near, pledges the impossible, makes long-distance promises, and offers hope beyond grief. Pray that this will be an encouraging, challenging time in our congregation as we reflect on Jesus’ work at Christmas.
The church’s financial statement for October 2019 is posted for review in the office over the copy machine.
Be praying with the Nominating Committee as it meets to put together a slate of candidates for office at the Annual Meeting in February 2020. If you would like to know more about our church’s nomination and election process, if you would like to submit a name for nomination, or if you believe the Lord is urging you to step forward—don’t hesitate to speak to Olive, Fred, or Derek.
If you would be interested in being a reader or singer in this year’s Christmas Program, “Vessels of Mercy”  please see Kathy!

Don’t forget to silence your devices.
Calendar
Monday, November 18th: AA meets downstairs from 8:00-9:15 pm.
Wednesday November 20th: Join us for Midweek Bible Study and Prayer Meeting at the church at 7:00 pm. We are moving into Luke 10 and the ministry of the 70--however we account for them!--as Jesus makes his way to Jerusalem and the cross. It’s a great time to join us!
Thursday, November 21st: Dewey Missionary Society meets in the adult Sunday School classroom at 10 am. Shirley will lead devotions.
Saturday, December 7th: Ladies Christmas Luncheon at 12:00 pm.


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.

Please note the enclosed insert (“Singing the Psalms”) as the Elders consider the importance of the Psalms and propose a more prominent place for them in our worship services. See Derek with any questions or concerns you may have.

THIS IS THE LAST WEEK to contribute to the “India Bible Project” and help the Raj family provide Telugu bibles for the hundreds in their churches who do not own their own. Thank you for your generous contributions.  If you intended to make a donation but forgot, just see Alice at the end of service.

Next Sunday we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper. If you would like to participate but are unable to be here, see Derek or one of the Elders to arrange another time. Don’t be shy about taking full advantage of this important gesture of unity with Christ and his body. A fellowship meal following the service is NOT planned at this time.

The Yoders are planning a midweek visit to Grand Rapids. Derek will be available by cell Wednesday to Friday (716-352-9391) and willl be back in the study on Saturday.

Drake Williams, this year’s speaker, will lead us in a topic titled, “After Jesus Left Them: The Dramatic Changed Lives of the Disciples Following His Resurrection.” Each session will also provide devotional reflection for Christians living in today’s world.
