What is Happening This Week 11/11-11/14-21

Happy Veteran’s Day!  
A big THANK YOU to those who served, are serving and the families that sacrifice so much for the freedom we embrace and live with each and every day!  

This Sunday, during the 10:30 service, we will baptize Oliver Campbell! When I met with Oliver, he expressed how much he loved God and wanted to be part of this church family! He will have lots of his own family here on Sunday and all of us in his church family! I hope you will make all of them feel very welcome!  

We had a huge success at the Gather and Give Auction-lite. 
Thank you for the many ways you contributed!  
We are also continuing to collect the 2022 Pledge Cards. Please fill one out, or reach out to Christine with your pledge number through email. We are grateful for the many families that are turning in their financial support for next year! This is very helpful for us in planning the ministries of 2022.  

I look forward to greeting you on Sunday!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl Murphy
