THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE BOX for October is to support the youth who will be going to Detroit for the ELCA Youth Gathering in July 2015. Thank you for your contributions to this ministry.
THE WORSHIP FLOWERS are presented by Joe & Sandy Doster to the glory of God and in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary.
FYI: Each week when the bulletin is printed, we post all of the announcements on the website under the Member Info Tab. The worship assistants are also listed with the announcements.
IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE READING THE BULLETIN we can email you a copy each week for you to print in the size font that suits you, or you can view it on your tablet or electronic device. Just email Susan at email@example.com.

CALLING ALL BAKERS: Cakes and Cookies and Pies, Oh My! Anyone interested in donating baked goods for the food concession at the craft show? We would love to have them. If so, please bring them to the church during the day on Thursday, Nov. 13 or Friday, Nov. 14. If you could package them the way you would want them sold, that would great.
