News for the Week of October 26, 2014

Here are your weekly church announcements.  Remember this Sunday will include a special family feature:  WHO IS YOUR HERO??…Dress up as your “Superhero” and then let us discover each other’s secret identities during Sunday worship service.  We will have a special family time with participation for all ages.  So dig out those costumes or be creative and make one up and bring family and friends for this fun learning experience and an adventure in discovery.

We will also enjoy fellowship together with a Coffee Hour following the service.  AND, the ladies from UCW will have their famous pie sale of homemade pies from the church kitchen.  Pies are frozen and sell for $10 each.

Our 175th Anniversary!

175 years of providing service to our community is something to celebrate and we plan to do that next year!  Next year is the 175th anniversary of our church and we want to hear your ideas about how we should mark that milestone.  Please come to a meeting in the Friendship Room on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. to share your ideas and hear what others are suggesting.  If you are unable to attend, please send your ideas to cherylneave@hotmail.com or call Cheryl at 905-477-4384.
