Greetings From India Rev. Ida called and left word that she and Kathy are doing well on their short term mission trip to India. They are both appreciating the opportunity that God has given to them as they minister to about 100 women every day from 9:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night. Please continue to remember them in your prayers as well as Marlene Knowles who is in Bolivia. Special Baptism Service We will be holding a special baptism service for Don Mosher on Sunday, November 27th. Because of Dons condition, we do not plan to fill up the baptismal tank. However, if you are feeling the Lords call upon your life to enter the waters of baptism, please speak to one of our pastors and we would be happy to make the appropriate arrangements. Thank You The Missions Committee would like to thank those people who came out and supported the Tea and Sale. We raised $360.00 for our future International Missions projects. We also wish to thank the Friendship Circle for supporting the project by supplying items and operating the sale table. The Muriel Bent WMS group provided unbelievable desserts. We are hoping this will be an annual event so those who attended may wish to spread the news next year. Thanks again everyone for coming together for such a good cause. Church Treasurer The Nominating Committee is seeking a Church Treasurer. If you have been blessed with the gift of financial expertise and would like to serve the Lord in this area please call Sharon Higgins @865-2680.
