Join our special Bible Study for all adult Sunday School classes and anyone not currently in a Sunday school class, members and visitors. We will be studying the book of Philippians and explore why it is a letter of joy and what Paul is telling the church of Philippi and why it still applies for us today. Lessons will be held in Westminster Hall from 9:15 – 10:15 am. We would love to see you all there. If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Ratcliff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nov. 11 – Joy in Giving – Phil 4:10 – 23
Create Your Own Masterpiece - Everyone over the age of 18 are invited to spend a couple of hours (2:00—4:00 P.M. on November 10) painting with the Dunnaways at Westminster Hall. Everything is furnished but the artist. Afterwards, the group will head out for Dutch-treat dining. Sign-up is in the Parlour.
The next ChristCare small group, Health and Nutrition will be meeting on November 11 at Diane Robertson’s at 2:30. You may contact Diane at (816) 786-4092 if you would like to attend.
Operation Christmas Child: National Collection week begins November 12 with the deadline on November 18. Please consider providing a box for our Operation Christmas Child mission project. There are instructions in the Parlour along with empty boxes. Feel free to take one of the pre-wrapped boxes to fill with treats for a child that may not otherwise receive a Christmas present; each box ships for $9. There are two options, donate at least $9 online and receive a tracking# to “follow the box” or write your check to “Samaritan’s Purse” and enclose in the box. Christian Education and Missions Committees sponsors this project.
Let us be in prayer and ask God what we are called to give to the ministry of the church, as well as for the willingness to carry that out. Then during worship on Commitment Sunday, November 18, you may either come forward with your pledge card to place it on the Communion Table, put it in the offering plate, or mail it to the church office if you prefer.
Presbyterian Women are again sponsoring the Church/Community Thanksgiving Dinner Sunday, November 18, 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.
Church Officer Nomination forms are available on the credenza. 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.
If you have an address change, name change, email address or a new phone number, birth announcement, or marriage announcement, please contact the church office by email at email@example.com or call 816-252-6662. Thank you!
