Come and join the Conversational Dinner group caroling on Sunday, December 2nd at 4:30 p.m.  We will meet at the Stone Brooke Clubhouse located at the corner of Fletcher Boulevard and Stone Brooke Road.  Please bring a favorite snack or Christmas goody to share after we return from caroling. Table service will be furnished.  All church members are very welcome to join the group for caroling.  As they say, the more the merrier!  We plan to disperse from the clubhouse to do our caroling by 5 p.m.  Please contact Pam Mundt or Marlene Johnson if you have any questions.

Thanksgiving Baskets of Plenty- NEXT SUNDAY, Nov 18 we will be having the Thanksgiving Food Ingathering for Bethesda Food Pantry. Cash/check donations and non-perishable food items will be placed at the altar. Cash/check donations allow the food pantry to purchase what is needed at a greatly reduced cost.

REMINDER- December Epistle items are due Thursday, November 15th.

Family POINTE is Open! ~ The Family POINTE resource wall, located in the lobby, is open and available for all families to search for that needed resource, prayer cards, or family activity book. If you have questions please feel free to contact Thomas Wilson, DCE – Director of Family Life Ministry. 

Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 5:30 pm will be our next LYF event for grades 1-12.  We will have a supper provided by the Board of Youth and then a night full of fellowship with playing games and talking about giving thanks. We ask that the children bring a non-perishable item or items to collect for a local food drive. This event is in the church fellowship hall. Please pick youth up at 7:30 p.m.     Permission forms are due Monday, Nov 12.

Snowbirds– If you are going south for the winter please call, email, or stop in at the office with your winter address and the dates that you will be away so we can send you the Epistle. Thank you.
