Harvest Home will be celebrated this year on October 18th during the Morning Worship service.  Since we are celebrating the bountiful harvest that God has given us, non-perishable food donations for our FIN food pantry would be greatly appreciated.  We are also looking for donations of mums. Items can be brought to the church on Saturday, October 17th between 9:00 am until 11:00 am.  The Decorating committee will meet at 9:00 am on Saturday to decorate.  We invite anyone interested in helping decorate to join us!

Friends in Need Food Pantry:  While we greatly appreciate all donations please be aware of expiration dates on food items.  We can’t / don’t give anything out that is expired.  We have been recently over run with expired stuff.  It is an added expense to the food pantry to have to discard all of the outdated items.  Thanks for your understanding!

There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board for Bulletin, Communion Cup, and Candle Sponsors.  Please pay and fill out a memorial/honorarium sheet when you sign your name on the list. There are cards available for you to fill out with your honorarium or memoriam and attach that with your payment.  Thank you in advance and if you have any questions please contact the church office at 668-4139.
