At 3:00 p.m. we'll deliver half the food and monetary donations to Child Concern, the other half will go to the St. Vincent dePaul Food Bank.  This year we will be set up in front of the new "10 Box Store"
Sign up with Jan Duffy to help collect and deliver the food.

Please return your pledge cards.
Kids News
All children are invited to participate in the Children's Christmas Program.  Practice will begin Sunday, October 1st during Sunday School.  Program will be on December 10th.

Thanks to you, we collected 15 pairs of shoes, 39 coats, and 60 pair of socks/underwear.  This will go a long way in making someone warm and comfortable.  No to mention the way it warms our hearts.

Volunteers Needed
We recently purchased new hearing assist devices for our morning worship service.  Your choice.  Please pass the word along that now with these new devices people are saying that they can hear the special music and the morning message.  All are invited to God's Welcoming Table at FCC.

Northside Nutrition Center

Look for a collection basket in the Narthex of the church.  At the request of the Christian Action Ministry Team the Board approved the support of the Northside Nutrition Center by placing a collection box for nonperishable food items needed by the Center for their feeding program. For many in our community this group provides a hot nutritious meal daily and on the weekend. Please watch the bulletin and newsletter for items needed each month.

November's item is canned mixed vegetables.
