Let's Get Together
Let's get together for a time of fellowship while eating together on December 6th after the morning service! This will be "pitch-in" style with pulled pork and turkey salad sandwiches provided for the main dish! You bring the side dish (or two!). We will also get into the holiday spirit with a cookie exchange! Bake a couple of dozens of your favorite home-made cookies and plan to share, then take home a variety pack of your own from what others make! Label your cookies if possible! Please sign up if you plan on coming so we can plan enough meat! Plan to encourage one family to come with (either church or unchurched friends) to make a "reach-out" and "reach-in" event! Please sign your guest registers if you plan to attend.
Young at Heart Excursion
Our group will travel to a special candle shop and restaurant in Centerville, Indiana, on Monday, November 9.

Tari Worrell will lead the group.
