First Free 411

 Church-Wide Service Project: Men, women, and teens ages 15+ (paired with a parent) are welcome to join us in preparing meals for our freezer ministry this Thursday evening, at 6:30 pm. As much as we would love ALL to come, realistically we have jobs for ideally 10 eager cooks. Concerned about being in person? Would you like to prep items ahead of time and drop off at church? Examples include: Brown hamburger, chop onions, cut veggies…. If this is more up your alley, please sign up for this option and we will let you know! Or maybe you’d like to make a 2nd batch of something you are cooking (soup and other freezable items) to add to the ministry? Please sign up in the foyer at the Women’s Ministry table or contact Mary Lynne!
 
 
Life Chain: On Sunday, October 4th at 2pm will be the annual Life Chain where participants from across the region join in peaceful prayer along 41st Street from Kiwanis to Sertoma Ave for the end of abortion.
 
 
AWANA: Awana is at capacity, therefore registration is closed. If you missed the deadline, please call the church office. Thanks!
