People of God!

Greetings in the name of JESUS, our Risen and Living Savior!

First, THANK YOU for the many cards, calls, and texts of well-wishes and encouragements as I recovered from my surgery. All has been going well and on schedule. When you read this I will have been back in worship and at work and steadily making a strong recovery.

Second, I want to thank our OUTSTANDING CALL COMMITTEE and ALL OF YOU who helped host both Russell and Ingrid who visited us over two weekends in October. So much time and effort went into all of this by all involved! Special thank you to Marci Bentz, who did an excellent job scheduling and coordinating it all! When you read this, a Call has been extended to Russell Baumann from St. Paul Lutheran Church, Carroll, Iowa, for our Family Life Ministry. Now we prayerfully await a response. Lord willing, we will be installing our new staff member very soon!

Third, our Harvest Dinner Feast is on Saturday, November 3rd, with servings at 4:00 pm and 6:30 pm. Profits this year go to support kitchen supplies, White Lake Food Pantry, and Christ the Rock Food Pantry. All Bake Sale Proceeds will go to the Emergency Fund. Come and enjoy a great meal, fellowship, and invite your family or friends to come with you!

Fourth, as we enter November we officially enter the Holiday Season that leads us through Thanksgiving and then in December, Advent and Christmas and New Year's Eve! I invite you to join us for our Thanksgiving Worship Service on Wednesday, November 21st, at 7:30 p.m. Come and let us join together in lifting our praise and thanksgiving to our Great, Good, and Gracious God!

Fifth and finally, please don't forget the TIME CHANGE on Sunday, November 4th. Turn your clocks back one hour. Don't be late for church! ;-)

I thank the Lord for all of you!
