You read it right! We're planning ahead - FYI for next year. Every five years, GEFC encourages its members to read through the Scriptures in a year. Next year (2017) will be the next time. We will once again be usint "The One Year Chronological Bible", and in 2017 Pastor Ron will be preaching a chronological overview of the entire Word through the year. Hopefully this will be helpful in thinking about your devotional study for 2016.
November 12 was the last day for turning in your shoeboxes for Operation Shoebox. This year we sent 115 shoeboxes! Congratulations and thank-you to all that helped make a child's Christmas better.
on Sunday, November 19th we will be meeting at 10am in the sanctuary for a combined service. It will be followed by a THANKSGIVING potluck! Plan to invite friends to come, especially VBS families.
we will decorate the fellowshp hall and sanctuary on Tuesday Nov 28th, starting at 9am. So come on down and burn off some of that thanksgiving turkey stuffing with your friends and help us all get into the spirit of the season!
If you have qustions, contact Joane Hammond, Judy McKinnon or Penny McKey.
The winter months are quickly approaching! Clean, gently new or used or new blankets or sleeping bags are welcomed by our Food Closet Ministry. They can be left in the church foyer or kitchen for pick up.
The Food Closet is open the Friday following the third Tuesday every month. Donations of canned items, personal hygiene products, and household cleaning items are always appreciated. If you would care to donate any of these items, they can be left in the kitchen or call us and we will arrange to get them from you.
We can't thank the members of this congregation enough for their continued generosity and their donations of food and funds for the Food Closet, and we so appreciate our many faithful and hard-working volunteers. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry.
