This year for our Veterans Day program we will be having a mini concert during Sunday school and I hear we may have a special speaker from the past joining us for both services.  This will be one Sunday you won’t want to miss!

The Helping Hands Ministry encourages you to send some “sunshine” (i.e., a card) to let them know that we are thinking of them and are keeping them in our prayers.

October is Pastor Appreciation month and the Pastor Appreciation Committee suggests letting our pastors know you care.  This year is special, since it will be both of our pastor’s last year.  We’d like to honor them in recognition of the difference they’ve made in the lives of so many as Pastor, Teacher, Mentor and Friend.  Also, for their dedication and commitment to our church and community.  We are truly a blessed congregation to have had these amazing men for so many years.

There will be a Women’s Book Study on the book “Hidden Christmas” by Timothy Keller.  What a great time of year to delve into the Christmas Story and gain a fresh appreciation for Christ!  This 6-week study will be held Tuesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the Church Library, from November 9th – December 14th.  The cost of the book is $5.  If you would like to join the Study please sign the sheet in the hallway.  The last day to sign up is October 31st.  To turn in the cost of your book or if you have any questions, please see Hillary Whaley (814-352-3081).  If you would like to join the Study in reading the book, but cannot make it to the Tuesday morning meeting, you are welcome to do so!

November 5-7Youth Fall Retreat @ Camp Sonrise Mountain  (For Grades 6 – Graduating Senior)  Cost is $55.  Registration Forms are in the Church Vestibule.  (Register by October 29)

Thank you for all the cards and well wishes in celebration of our 50th anniversary.

 * There is an unstaffed nursery for babies located on the same floor as the sanctuary that may be used at any time.

* For the 10:30 Worship Service, we have a staffed nursery downstairs in room 1 for children up through the age of 3.

* Feel free to use the downstairs nursery even if it is not staffed.

* Both nurseries have a closed circuit TV through which you can watch the worship service.

Jr. Church (8:15 & 10:30 Worship Services)

 * We offer a Jr. Church program during both morning worship services downstairs in the social room for children age 3 up to and including 6th grade.

Should my 3 year-old be in the nursery or Jr. Church?

 * If your child is going to turn 4 before September 1st, your child should be in Jr. Church.

* If your child is going to turn 4 on or after September 1st, your child should be in the nursery until the first Sunday in September of this year.

* If you would like your 3 year-old to be in Jr. Church before he/she is supposed to be in Jr. Church, then you need to stay with your child during Jr. Church each Sunday until a leader says it is okay to leave.

Sunday School (9:30)

 * We have classes for children (beginning when they are old enough to walk), youth, and adults. If your child is not old enough to walk, feel free to take him/her with you to your class. For more info, please see either the Sunday School brochure or the Welcome Packet. They are located in the pew rack and on a table in the hallway.

 Want to know more about our church?

 * There are folders with more info about our church in the racks of each pew. Please take one home with you and check it out.
