                       *We will begin an Adult Sunday School Class on October 3.* 

Art of Parenting will run for 8 weeks. Paul and Susan VanWyhe will lead this class as we study “aiming your child’s heart toward God”.

 Library News from the Librarians: We have added some very intriguing, interesting, and entertaining books and moves for young and old. Come check out the library. We have noticed that some items are being taken without being checked out. Please fill the card out in the front of the book, or the back of the movie and leave the card in the designated box. Also, the following books and movies have not been returned for a long time. Please check your home to see if you have them.  Movies: The Princess and the Popstar, Puppies & Guppies, Abe & the Amazing Promise, God Made You Special.  Books: Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook, Forest Friends Help Each Other, October Baby, When We Were Young, The Hole In our Gospel, Evidence Not Seen, and Evolution Exposed.

--It’s Operation Christmas Child time once again…and Back-to-School Sales are in full swing! It’s a great time to stock up on items for our OCC Packing Party on November 10th.  Please visit the information table in the gathering space where you will find a supply sign-up. Items are requested to be at church no later than Sunday, October 31st. Please also prayerfully consider packing a shoebox (or two!) on your own. Shoeboxes are available for you to use. Thank you for your support!

 

Thank you: to everyone who donated their gently used Christian Literature in the past weeks. Most of the donations were Bibles, Bible Study books, daily devotionals, books and Sunday School materials. 39 boxes of material were taken to the drop off site at the Sioux Center First Reformed Church. All of the material collected in Sioux Center was taken to the International Christian Literature Distributors in Minneapolis over the Labor Day weekend. ICLD, which is run completely by volunteers, will send our donations throughout the world to spread God’s word. There is a collection box under the south coat rack for any donations you may have during the year. We encourage you to drop off your old “Words of Hope” in the box when you receive a new one. The list of items that can be used is posted above the box. 

 

*Justice for All is having their Annual Meeting and Fall Auction on Thursday, October 28 at 530p in the Parkview Event Center – Rock Valley, IA.  There will be an update about the ministry, short business meeting, and a live auction with Mark Zomer and Doug Kooima.  Enjoy a meal and fellowship while supporting Justice for All ministry.   Thursday October, 28 530p Parkview Event Center, don’t miss out!

 

Thank you, God, for each individual in this church!

We appreciate Your abundant love and the opportunity to be united in Your purposes!
