Children’s Ministers Needed

Our Sunday Children’s Ministries have opportunities to worship with the youngest members of our congregation. Our nursery provides loving care for the babies through age three and has new materials to make the time spent with the babies enjoyable. The Chapel is an opportunity to lead children up to third grade in a Grace filled atmosphere with messages that parallel our Pastors sermons but, in an age appropriate format. These are wonderful times to share the love of Christ with the children of our church family. Please contact Charlene Taylor if you are interested in being a part of this essential ministry for this church.

The men will have a baking contest; the ladies will have a chili cook-off; and the kids will have a pumpkin carving contest. If you are an artist or crafter, we would love to have you display your handmade goods in our artisanal show. The kids will be able to dress up and get Halloween candy and we will have a fire to roast hot dogs. Games and festivities throughout the night will provide a good time for all. Candy donations are appreciated. If you will display crafts or projects in progress, please have your displays to the fellowship hall on the 31st before 4:00 p.m. If you are entering the cooking contests, please bring your prepared entries to the fellowship hall before 5:00 p.m. Tickets will be sold to vote in the chili cook-off and baking contest to benefit our Hurricane Relief efforts.
