Church Members: 


Pledge cards (for repayment of the loan for the recent roof repair work on our buildings) have been mailed out to each family.  We are asking your prayerful consideration in regards to what the Lord would have you to give above your regular tithes and offerings in order for us to pay off this loan as quickly as we can.  Thanks for your faithfulness in this matter.  Pastor Ron

NOTE:  As most of you know by now, our church-wide picnic and baptism at the bay was cancelled due to the threat of a storm. Therefore, we will be rescheduling our church-wide picnic in the months ahead. More information to come at a later date.

Pastor Ron

Fall Family Festival Needs Volunteers

Just a week and a couple days away is our annual Fall Family Festival 

In addition to praying for God to use this event to foster a fun, family environment in which relationships can form and the Gospel can be displayed, consider being a volunteer with us. 

There are a number of different volunteer roles. 

For example, you could be a greeter at the front doors, a person that helps guests fill out brief info forms, an assistant with the food, a game/booth host, or be a “bounce-house enforcer”. 

Next Sunday, Oct. 29th, right after corporate worship we’ll have a luncheon for volunteers to share information. 

After the lunch, we’ll go over to the Family Life Center (FLC) and set up the gym for the event.

  If you’d like to know more about the Fall Family Festival or have questions about volunteering, feel free to contact Walt Magaha at 850.455.7389 ext. 118. 

Also, individually wrapped candy donations are still needed.

  Boxes have been placed in the church office and the Family Life Center (FLC).  

Blessings, Walt
