Good Morning Church:
This Sunday we will wrap up out October series: “Seek Ye First." We will take a look at how we want to be remembered by family, friends and our community after we are gone. I hope you will be able to join us. There will also be a table set up in front of the Chapel where you can pick up your 2015 Estimate of Giving Card. We encourage you to take the card home and prayerfully consider how you will use God’s gifts and resources in ministry the coming year. After you have considered your gift, you may return it during the worship on November 9th. I hope that you will consider moving toward the biblical standard of the tithe…10% of your income…if you are not there already. The gifts you return to God help us to do God’s work in the community and the world. Thank-you for your prayerful consideration.
In other news;
This Friday we will host a FALL FROLIC for our friends from our UMAR Houses. We will treat them to dinner at 5:30pm and then there will be a dance and other activities following. We hope you will be able to join us for the festivities. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Warner for details.
Hayesville’s “Trick or Treat on the Square” will take place of Thursday, October 30. As we have done in the past, we will have a bonfire for anyone who wants to come. The bonfire will be held in our back parking lot located on the corner of Business Hwy 64 and May Street. There will be hot cider and stuff for s'mores. Come join us and invite others to be a part. We will also have a table at the Trick or Treat on the Square, if you can donate some candy to give out, please leave it in the basket in front of the Chapel.
Plans are under way for our Fall Festival at the Sweetwater Campus on November 2 starting at 4pm. We will have food, games for kids, cornhole, a campfire and music. One of the cool “campfire things” we are doing (other than s’mores) is a little pickin’ and grinnin’. If you have a guitar, mandolin or other such instrument (or know someone who does) bring it along for an evening jam session around the fire. Spread the word and invite some folks to join us at the Sweetwater Campus on November 2. If you would like to help, we could use some cookies.
We are assembling a First Response team of folks who can be sent out to do some minor repairs for folks in our community in case of emergencies. We will need folks who can do light construction, plumbing, and small repairs. The servants will be placed on a list, and if we get a call for needs (usually through our contacts at Hinton) we will send out a small team to help. This is a great way to build relationships with folks in the community and to be the face of Christ. If you would like to be a part of the team, or if you have any questions please let me know.
That is all for now. Be the face of Christ.
