Seeking Youth Musicians for Family Christmas Eve Services

Youth musicians interested in singing or playing an instrument for the 5:00pm Family Christmas Eve service, contact Cheryl Sandrock (419)356-9080 or the Church Office. We are seeking musicians for the Prelude, Special music, and Offertory. Soloists or groups are welcome to participate in the worship service. 

It's that time of year already!  Mark your calendars for Sunday, November 25th at 1:00 p.m. to begin decorating the church.  Many hands make light work.  Come join in the fun and fellowship in preparing the church for Advent!  Thank you in advance.

PB & J (Prayer, Bible & Jesus): Informal fellowship - come as you are, as often as you're able, on Wednesdays from 6:45 - 8:00pm in the 1st floor lounge.

COMMUNITY MARKET RECEIPTS Please keep your community market receipts and bring them to church - the LYO is collecting the receipts! There is a box in the elevator lobby or you can drop them off to the office. A special thanks to Marge Felder for organizing and tallying them for the LYO!

THERE IS A LARGE PRINT HYMNAL available for the congregation.  It is in a 3-ring binder located on the credence table by the handicap entrance.  If there is a need for more than 1 hymnal at a service, please contact the office.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER GROUP: In addition to praying for the homeless (as well as others), we would like to invite the congregation to work with us on a project! We are doing a Sock Project. Starting this week, we are collecting socks for men at Cherry Street Mission & women at Sparrows Nest. Research has shown that one of the main items asked for by those living in shelters is warm socks. Please join us as we embark on the Sock Project! Bins will be located in the Narthex & elevator lobby. This will be a year-round project.

Keep in your prayers the members of our Call Committee
