Monthly Capital Campaign – The November Capital Campaign is for Crossroads Prison Ministry, formerly known as Crossroads Bible Institute. Crossroads connects prisoners with mentors in Christ-centered relationships so that lives, prisons, and churches are restored through the Gospel. Did you know that there are 10 million people serving time in prison worldwide, 2.2 million people are serving time in US prisons and 88 % of US prisoners do not have regular visitors? Crossroads Prison Ministries needs Bible Study Mentors and if this is something you’d like to learn more about, check out their website at https://cpministries.org/mentorship-program. As a Crossroads mentor, you will review prisoners’ Bible study lessons and write them letters of hope and encouragement. You will hear their stories and have an opportunity to let them know that they are not forgotten and that they are deeply loved by God. Please take a moment to go by the foyer table and take some of the items that Crossroads has sent us. The offering for Crossroads will take place on Sunday, November 27th.
From the Worship Committee – We would love to have more people involved in our weekly worship services. If you would be willing to help lead a part of morning worship, we have a sign-up sheet in the back by the member boxes with the parts of worship for volunteers to lead. Also, if you have a musical talent and would like to lead an offertory song, please let Pastor Greg know or another member of the worship committee.
Christmas Caroling – We will tentatively be Christmas caroling at local nursing homes next Sunday, December 4th at 5:00 pm. This will not be confirmed until the week of, due to the amount of covid and flu cases in the community and if we will be allowed inside the building.
