We can’t control God because that’s not grace.



Sunday morning we will have another hybrid worship service:

 Sunday school will be at 9:30.

 There will be a "fellowship break" at 10:30

 Worship will be at 10:45.

 The Zoom meeting will be online.

  We will read 2 Sam 7:1-17.

Next Sunday we will read 1 Kings 17:1-16 in worship.


Version 2 of our safe worship guidelines were emailed out.


We have a sharing fund to assist our members as well as those more loosely connected w/ us who are struggling with financial hardship. Please speak with someone on the nurture commission: Steve, Julie, and/or Ron.


It's time to help out with the People's City Mission Thanksgiving baskets: please drop off the big cans of yams and boxes of stuffing at the church between now and Nov 15. Talk to Dave if you need help getting in the building.


Gifts Discernment is looking to fill two positions: primary Sunday school superintendent and worship committee member. If you would like more information or would be willing to fill one of these positions please contact Brett, Julie, or Becky. 


The shop will continue to be "open" for shop hours Thursday from 3-6. We are meeting virtually on Zoom. Stop by to chat if you'd like.


Please continue to be extra intentional in connecting in order to fight social isolation: physical distance is not equal to social isolation. Let's love our neighbors around the area and world.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - As Pastor Appreciation Month draws to a close, we give thanks for all of the faithful shepherds in Central Plains Mennonite Conference! Our conference is blessed with the leadership of so many good pastors!
