Weekly Announcements

From the October 21, 2018 Bulletin


Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.


Children’s Worship Bulletins – There are Children’s Worship Bulletins available on the rail by the organ each Sunday with activities to do during worship.  There are separate ones for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.  Pick one up for your child.


Team Kids – All preschoolers and children are invited to come to Team Kids.  Team Kids includes a Bible study, games and a missions video each week.  It lasts for 1 hour – 7:00 - 8:00 pm on Wednesday nights.  We will have one Team Kids group for preschoolers age 3 – Kindergarten and for children grades 1 - 6. 


Trunk or Treat – We will have our annual Trunk or Treat this Wednesday, October 24 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm on our church parking lot.  Sign up on the bulletin board if you will have a car and give candy out of your trunk (we had 550 children last year.)  You may also volunteer to help with hotdogs, mingling, being a greeter, etc.  Cars and workers should be here no later than 6:00 pm.  The set up team and hot dog preparation team should be here no later than 5:00 pm.  If you want to give a monetary donation, give the money to Kathy Rogozienski or Stephanie Stupperich.


Operation Christmas Child – We will conduct Operation Christmas Child again this year.  You can fill a shoe box with toys to be sent to a child overseas.  Our church collection day will be November 4.  Next Sunday, we will pass out the leaflets on “How to Pack a Shoe Box” which contains the envelope to put in your box.


“Let All You Do Be Done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14

Children’s Choir – Children’s Choir has begun again for the fall season.  We meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the choir room.  We will work on a song for the Christmas Cantata and songs for Sunday specials.


Family Potluck Meal – Next Sunday evening, October 28 we will have our quarterly church-wide family potluck meal at 5:30 pm.  The theme for the meal is “Italian Food.”  Please bring an Italian (or any kind of food) dish or a dessert for the meal.


Quarterly Business Meeting – Next Sunday, October 28 after our potluck meal we will have our quarterly church business meeting.  If you do not wish to come to the potluck come at 6:15 for the business meeting.


Pastor Out of Town Today – Bro. Richard will not be leading our services today.  He and Lana are attending the 180th Anniversary of the Steeleville Baptist Church.  This church asked all its former pastors to attend and share at this special anniversary service.  Bro. Randy Davis will be preaching today.
