Please preregister on the Credenza or online (www.fpcindep.org) so we have enough food, though walk-ins are welcome. One other daytime date and topic tentatively planned is on Dec. 12 - Truman Heartland’s Community for All Ages Coalition, readying our communities for the next generation of retirees.

All boxes are to have $9 in them for shipping and handling. Please mark your box “boy” or “girl” and their age. There are boxes in the Parlour, with slips of paper for you to look at to give you ideas about what to pack in each box. If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Ratcliff (email@example.com).
Presbyterian Women are again sponsoring the Church/Community Thanksgiving Dinner Sunday, November 24, at Westminster Hall, with service beginning at 12:00 p.m. Please bring your favorite vegetable, salad, or dessert to share and a little extra for our community. Turkey, dressing, rolls and beverages will be provided. If you would be interested in volunteering to help with clean-up and tear-down after dinner, please contact Pam Long at 816-228-2895. Let’s all enjoy this special time of fellowship and good food around the church family’s Thanksgiving table.
The Christmas decorating crew is looking for helpers to decorate the church for the holidays and prepare for the December 1 Hanging of the Greens. They will meet at the church to start decorating on November 24 immediately following the clean-up from the Church/Community Thanksgiving dinner.
Available on the credenza are the Church Officer Nomination forms. Please consider who among our members you might nominate for service, or you may nominate yourself. Completed forms may be placed in the collection plate or turned into the office.
The grand piano in the sanctuary has been moved onto the chancel to even out the volume throughout the sanctuary, shorten the travel time for Glenna when moving from piano to organ, and allow Paul Smith to lead and accompany the Praise Team in the choir loft rather than upfront. Basically, it brings all our musicians and instruments closer together. Thank you for your ongoing support of our music ministry. Please let Pastor Dave, Judy Lewis (Worship chair) or Paul Smith (Music Director) know if you have any questions or concerns.
If you have a special birthday or anniversary you would like to celebrate with the church, please contact the church office at 252-6662.
