DONATIONS FOR LOCAL MINISTRIES
During the month of October we will be collecting new supplies for two of the ministries that we will do projects for at our annual Friendsgiving event. We will be collecting twin size sheets, pillows, and blankets for Beds of Hope. We will also be collecting underwear, socks, and diapers for Legacy Closet. Please make sure all things are new and unopened. Both of these ministries minister to families with foster, kinship., or adoptive kids. We will then give the supplies to the ministries during our Friendsgiving event so you can even bring your gifts that day. What a great way to come alongside some families in our community. There will be a collection box in the Worship Center Foyer and in the TreeHouse Lobby.
Baptism is a very important way to publicly communicate a believer’s faith in the Lord Jesus and commitment to follow Him. The next opportunity to participate in baptism will during the service on October 30. What a great way to celebrate what the Lord Jesus has done for us!
