UPDATE FROM THE CALL COMMITTEE
Greetings from the Call Committee. To give you an idea of how long we have been working together, we had our first meeting in January of this year. It seems like it has been longer, but it really hasn't been that long, especially as we are learning how this process works. We recently had an audio/visual interview with a Pastor and we have others that we would like to pursue, before bringing anyone before you. We feel great about our progress and we know that God is leading us and allowing us to use the gifts he has given us to fulfill this journey. Please continue to pray for us and the congregation. God Bless You All."
HAND & FOOT CARD GAME, NOV. 22 @ 7 pm
Do you like to play cards? Some of us have been getting together to play the card game “Hand & Foot,” and we thought that others might like to join the fun. “Hand & Foot” is a North American variation of Canasta. If you play this game or would like to learn, please join us at church for an evening of cards and fellowship. We have some very good coaches who would be glad to help you learn. We’ll begin at 7:00 on Friday, Nov. 22nd and play until we complete the set. You may bring a snack to share if you wish. Please sign up on the Wittenberg Door or your connection card.
CHRISTMAS BAZAAR AND CAFÉ – Dec. 6 & 7
The Christmas Bazaar and Café is right around the corner. If you enjoy making crafts and you have some crafts to donate, we would love to add them to the crafts made by our Craft Group. You may bring your homemade crafts to church and mark that they are crafts for the Bazaar so that they go on the correct side at the sale.
Pallets are also set up in the basement to receive your gently used items for the white elephant portion of the sale. Please be sure that the items you donate are clean and in good working condition with all parts included.
Don’t forget to save the dates and plan to come shop and eat! Monies raised at this sale will be used to purchase new chairs in addition to other needs.
CHRISTMAS MUSICAL, DEC. 7 & 8
Invite your friends and family to a fun event – “How the Grinch Found Christ in Christmas” is the title of our Christmas musical. This delightful adaptation of the story of the Grinch will give you a whole new perspective. Performances will be on Dec. 7 & 8. Once again, we will share the Good News about Jesus while having a Grinchy good time!
ADVENT DEVOTIONS, WE NEED 12 MORE!
So far, we have 23 people or families who signed up to write an Advent devotion. In order to have devotions all the way through Epiphany we need 37. So, if you've ever wanted to see your name in print now is your chance! You don't have to be Shakespeare, you just have to have some thoughts about the Christmas season you would like to share. The Prayer Team can provide simple guidelines or examples. If you'd like to give it a try, please contact the office or any member of the Prayer Team.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
“Reaching For the Invisible God”- Philip Yancey
Sandy Voigt will be facilitating an adult group this fall semester using Philip Yancey’s book- “Reaching for the Invisible God.”. Lucado tackles some challenging questions that Christians struggle with, but often don’t ask, because they fear it shows their lack of faith. The cost of the book is $10 and ALL are invited to join this group.
The Book of Acts
Pastor Don and others will be facilitating this group. The book of Acts is the story of the growth of the Christian Church. We’ll be working on Acts 15 next week.
The Book of Acts
Bob Smith and others will be facilitating this group. We are continuing the study of the book of Acts. This is a passage by passage study with discussion about the meaning of the verses and the application of the book to our church and to our world today.
THE SHELVES AT CCIA ARE RUNNING LOW!
At this time of year several of the churches that normally gather food for the CCIA food pantry begin to use that food for their Christmas baskets. Unfortunately, that leaves many empty shelves at CCIA. When you are doing your shopping, perhaps you would consider picking up a few extra things to donate to the food pantry. There is a cart under the shelf in Mission Central to accept your donations and there is a list of suggested items to donate on that shelf. CCIA provides food for many families in our area. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
If you packed an OCC box at home, and have not yet returned it to church, please do so by next Sunday, Nov. 10. Please remember to tell us the age range and gender of the child that your box is intended for. Please also remember to include $9 for shipping. Please place your check in an envelope with your name and amount on it. There is a small box in Mission Central in which you can place your contribution. Thank you for your generosity.
SAVE THE DATE FOR FOOD BASKET SHOPPING
Please save Monday, Dec. 16 for our annual food basket shopping and preparation. It’s always a great evening. We’ll also be putting up the Christmas tree on that evening. After we work, we provide pizza and subs for everyone. You’ll be amazed all we can accomplish on that evening. The one thing we need is you to help us do it all. Sign-up sheets will be on the Wittenberg door next week.
