I hope you plan to bring your car and candy to our Trunk or Treat event on Halloween from 5:00-6:30! Decorate your car and wear a costume if you want but it certainly isn’t necessary. If you run out of candy, no worries, we have lots! It will be lots of fun.
On Sunday, we are celebrating All Saints Day, a holiday in the church calendar when we remember the saints who have gone on before us. It’s not too late to submit the names of loved ones who have passed away so they can be mentioned in the service. Call the office or write the names down on Sunday before church.
The UMM will be treating us to a chili and baked potato lunch on Sunday, November 12th right after church. Save the date and plan to come!
Make sure to put December 1st on your calendar. It’s the date for our Winter Festival. As Glenora said last Sunday, it takes all of us to make it work. Sign up sheets will be available soon. Be thinking about what you can do to help.
We don’t have a volunteer to organize Operation Christmas Child this year. If you’d like to build a shoebox, we can find a way to get it to the right place or you can build one on line for $25. Let me know if you need help with that.
This Sunday will be the last day to contribute to a tip for our lawn guy Mahlon. The jar is on the table in the fellowship hall.
Our praise songs for Sunday will be Cannons and All Who Are Thirsty. Click on the blue links and listen before Sunday if you can.
We have some prayer requests this week.
We heard from Catherine Fry that Russ Busey who was the secretary at PUMC had a stroke and is in the hospital. He lives in Eugene and plans to move into senior housing when he is released. Keep Russ in your prayers. Catherine is working on getting an address for us.
Things are looking up for Carmen’s cousin Tory. He had successful surgery and now is able to stand! Keep praying for Tory.
Kathryn Gordon asks us to pray baby Charlie who will be having heart surgery on December 5th. She is the great granddaughter of a childhood friend of Kathryn’s.
My sister’s husband Bill will be going into hospice care very soon. He has an untreatable tumor in his lung. Please pray for Bill, my sister Carolyn and their kids Rick and Diane.
Annie Crego’s mom Katie had knee replacement surgery last week. Pray for a quick, complete recovery.
Keep these folks on your prayer list: Larry Jeffries, Jim Warzyn, Bob Maynard, Josh, Darby, Lis Williamson, Shannon Osborn, Olivia Bybee, Hugh Homan and the Taylors who are friends of the Boesch’s.
Have a great rest of the week and we hope to see you on Sunday.
