November 2015 Newsletter

WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?! Newsletter

November is here!  Lots to do before we wrap up 2015!  Sit down or grab hold of something…here we go!!

Sunday, November 1: You get to sleep one whole extra hour!  Take advantage of that and show up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!  Or spend that extra hour enjoying another cup of coffee…your choice!  It is also the final day to turn in your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  I saw lots of empty boxes Sunday morning…let’s get them filled to give to the kiddos!  Want to know a little bit more about FBC and what we’re about?  Pastor Garry will be starting another Membership Information Class on Sunday from 9:30-10:20 a.m.  Check with him or contact the church office to sign up or ask questions.  (This sure is a busy, busy day!)  A Missionary Guest Speaker will be sharing about missionary life and ministry during both the 10:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. services.  My notes do not include the name of our speaker…I’ll be honest, that makes me even more curious!  Don’t miss this opportunity to be encouraged and to encourage another worker of Christ.  See you there!

Sunday, November 8: This is one of those busy meeting days.  You know the kind that start off with Council meeting at 8:30 a.m. and end with a Business meeting after the worship service.  We’re talking 2016 budget, so be there! ‘Nuff said.

Wednesday, November 11: MOPS has a small group meeting from 10:00-11:30 a.m.  Childcare will be provided.

Sunday, November 22: It’s time for the Church-wide Thanksgiving Fellowship.  Standard Operating Procedure dictates that everyone bring some yummy, yummy food to share.  We all eat too much food, clean up, take our leftovers and roll ourselves back home to take a NAP!  That gives you three days to digest before you get to do that again!

Some of our ongoing Bible study opportunities:

Ladies Bible study will continue to meet on Mondays (the 2nd, 9th and 16th) at 6:30 p.m.

Men’s Bible study “Face Your Giants” will continue to meet on every other Thursday (the 5th and 19th) at 7:30 p.m.  Contact Andy Sutton or Rod Pound for more info.

Don’t forget about your chance to spend part of a day packing meals for the Feed My Starving Children ministry. The event date is scheduled for Saturday, December 5. A flyer with the info has been in your bulletin and you can also check with Chris Blystone about all the important details. You need to sign up on foyer table ASAP to get accurate count.

If you’ve gotten this far, congratulate yourself…you’ve made it to the end! Now get up and get moving!  As much as we’ll be eating this month, we’re going to need the exercise
