The Big 3

#1) Adult Sunday School
A three-week Sunday School class begins today on the book of Joel. Pastor Terry will lead the class in the Fellowship Hall. This is the only adult Sunday School class offered for these three weeks. Hope to see you there!
 
 
#2) Grateful Gathering—Thursday!
Mark your calendars for this Thursday  for our pre-Thanksgiving event. We will join   together for prayer and worship. Come at 6:30pm for cider and fellowship, and then at 7:00 pm, we will gather in the sanctuary to sing and pray. Despite the difficulties of this year, we have much to thank and praise God for! Your daughters ages 12 to 18 are more than welcome to attend as well. Kindly RSVP in the foyer at the Women’s    Ministries table or  e-mail Mary Lynne. Thank you.
 
 
#3) Operation Christmas Child
Things are wrapping up this week with Operation Christmas Child! Boxes and instructions are at the display area near the front door. By putting a $9.00 check (per box shipping cost) payable to Samaritan's Purse in the container provided on the display table. Feel free to also visit the Samaritan's Purse website for instructions about sponsoring a virtual shoe box. When the shoeboxes are delivered,  Samaritan’s Purse coordinates with the local congregations and pastors to provide Bible lessons along with the shoebox gifts. The graduates of these classes receive Bibles in their own language. This Wednesday is the deadline to return filled shoeboxes to FEFC so we can meet collection deadlines.
