WELCOME!
We extend a warm welcome to all who have come to worship and fellowship with us this morning. If you are a first time visitor with us, please take time to fill out a Welcome Card located in the pew rack and place it in the offering plate. Parents of small children (under age 3) may take them to our Nursery, where a caring staff will supervise them. We also have a Pre-School Program (ages 3-5) that runs during our Worship Service in the Church Time PreSchool Room. One of our ushers would be happy to help you locate either one of these facilities. Elementary School children are invited to take part in our KidZone program which starts after the first part of our Worship Service downstairs in the Vestry.

Jesus Has Asked Us To Make Disciples. 4 members of our congregation have been called to 3 different and diverse short term missions in October and November.

Ida and Kathy Cochrane are going to India to help in training women. If you wish to contribute to their missions we ask you to talk to each individual for further information. Please be in prayer for these people as each one follows Gods leading. Missions Committee What Are Your Gifts? God has given each one of us gifts and he wants us to use them to serve Him. The Nominating Committee would like to know what your gifts are and where you would be most comfortable serving the Lord. The possibilities are many and so are the gifts that you as a congregation have. Please be in prayer for God's leading as we will be calling you within the next few weeks to see where you would like to serve. Christmas Beacon House Project Beacon House is currently engaged in its annual project of supplying Christmas boxes for those in need.
