*CALL TO WORSHIP

              Every generous act of giving,

                   With every perfect gift, is from above,

              Coming down from the Father of lights,

                           With whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

            Everything we have in this life is a gift from God;

                        Our homes and our transportation,

            The clothes we wear and the food we eat,

                        Our family and our friends.

            Help us share these gifts with you and with others,

                        So that we may experience the joy of your salvation.

- Butter Braids are coming!  The Sr. High Youth will be selling butter braids Nov. 13th through Dec. 4th.   We will have samples for you to try between services on Sun., Nov. 17th.  If you order a butter braid from a youth they will be available after Dec. 10th, so you will have them in time for Christmas.  .  Flavors available are Cinnamon, Blueberry-Cream Cheese, Strawberry-Cream Cheese, Apple, Bavarian Crème, Cherry and Caramel Rolls at $11 each.

 

- November Health Message Today, more than 25 million Americans are living with diabetes and 79 million are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.  Lower your chances of developing type 2 diabetes by watching your weight, being active, eating healthy, and controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol.  Diabetes information is available in Wesley Hall.

 

- Flocks of Chicks change Lives $20 will purchase a flock of chicks through Heifer International. Your gift helps provide a family in need with a starter flock of 10 to 50 chicks, along with the training to empower them. Chickens require little space and can thrive on scraps. This allows families to make money from the birds without spending much.  And since a good hen can lay up to 200 eggs per year, your gift provides a steady source of nutrition and income. You may also wish to give this as an alternative gift to family and friends. What an incredible way to focus on the real meaning of Christmas and shine the light of Jesus! Our goal is to sell 50 flocks. We will be selling them on 11/10 & 11/17 in the church lobby or you can contact the church office.  Pass on the gift! The Missions Committee

See you there Laurie Baily

- Having a New Baby? “Watching Your Baby Grow” is a great resource for parents who have just had a birth of a new baby or adoption of a child. This resource helps prepare you as your child grows to provide insight into the spiritual needs of your child. There are many changes in the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a child from birth to five. You can keep track if the development and well baby check ups, as well as your thoughts and feelings toward parenting in the resource. It is often said “it takes a village to raise a child.”  Ask for help when needed.  Arrange for the parish nurse to visit you after the new baby to answer questions and learn about services in the community. To request a free copy of “Watching Your Baby Grow” contact parish nurse, Susan Thorson, R.N. at the church office at 665-2991.
