Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.            Philippians 4:8

Announcements

BIBLES - Studying Scripture is one of the most important ways we learn about God. FMC presents Bibles to each student during or after second grade to support their growing faith development. Today we will present bibles to Sofiya, Carter, Kaylynn, Cecilia, and Rachel.

 

GROUP STUDY - Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? The book, “The Case for Christ”, written by Lee Strobel, a journalist, lawyer and former atheist, takes a look at the evidence. If you are interested in joining a group to read and discuss together, contact Rick and Wanda Stauffer.

 

WOMEN'S COFFEE is changing! We are going to try meeting the 2nd Tuesday of the month. October 8, 2019, we will meet at Barb Schlegel's home at 9:30am. Join us! 

 

MUSIC - If you are interested in helping with music during the worship services, please contact Jennifer Miller. This could be helping to sing, leading music, playing an instrument, sharing special music... however you would like to contribute.

 

WORKDAY - The fall church work day will be on Saturday, October 6, 8:00-12:00 at church. A few tasks on the agenda are grounds keeping, maintenance, and deep cleaning. Let's make the church lively for the winter!! Direct questions to Thad Miller.

 

CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUESTS - Pray for our sister churches in Minnesota and Wisconsin: Bethel, Emmanuel, Faith, First-Mountain Lake, Lao Fellowship, Rochester, Saint Paul Hmong Mennonite, Third Way and affiliated groups Fargo-Moorhead Faith Mennonite Fellowship and The Mennonite Worker in Minnesota, and Shalom in Wisconsin.

 

FROM MCC - The dates for meat canning in Milford this year are November 11-12 a Monday and Tuesday.  We plan to can 18,000 pounds of meat, so we will need lots of volunteers and about $34,000.
