All Saints Sunday

 will be celebrated at both services on November 2, and we will name and honor our loved ones that have passed away in the last year.  Everyone will also have an opportunity, if they choose, to come forward and light a candle in memory of any loved one that has passed.  Feel free to invite others to join us for this special service to honor our beloved Saints that have gone before us.

Adult Sunday School -

 Please join us each week 9:15-10:15!  We have 2 classes for you to choose from.

Upstairs Conference Room – this class is led by Ann Nash and they are starting to study “The Purpose Driven Life” book written by Rick Warren.  Books are available, and it’s not too late to join in!

Sanctuary – this group is led by Pastor Kent and various other teachers throughout the year, and they are learning “What the Bible Says About…” (various life topics). 

November is fast approaching

 and it will be time for sending money for the orphans.  November will be the fifth year for the orphanage.  Some of you give yearly which is $660, some give for ½ year which is $330 and others give monthly which is $55.  Whatever fits your budget is fine with us.  Patty Mann will be  taking over the bookwork for the orphanage.  She has a great interest in Tanzania.  I will still be available if you have a question about anything.  Please continue to send all money to Grace Lutheran Church, and then at the end of the month, Patty will receive a check to send to Tanzania.  Thank you for your support of these orphans. – Marge Beam

With Christmas approaching,

 Operation Christmas Child is beginning. Any size shoebox can be filled with items such as school supplies (pencils, pens, paper, crayons), hygiene items (combs, wash cloths, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.), small toys (yo-yo’s, jump ropes, small stuffed animal, small games, etc.).  Candy and gum can be included, but NO CHOCOLATE CANDY.  The organization also asked that no violent gifts, such as toy guns and knives, be included.  Please mark on the box if it is for a girl or boy.  If you would like to wrap your shoebox, please wrap the lid separate from the box, as the boxes are checked at the processing center.  You may also bring in your box unwrapped and the Jr. High Sunday School class will wrap them.  These boxes will be collected in the north and south Annex until Sunday, November 15th.  If there are any questions, please feel free to call me at 937-843-5955 or 937-441-8413.  Thank you for your generosity for these needy children.  –Shirley DeWeese
