Tailgate Sunday

On Sunday, November 25th, the church will be having a Tailgate Sunday.

Members are encouraged to wear their team colors, jerseys, hats, ties, and whatever else to support their team…maybe not face paint.

Yeah, definitely not face paint

After Sunday School all are invited to the church parking lot to grill some food and hang out with other church members.

Bring your own grill and meat along with any tailgating games you have.

We will have some games setup like Hillbilly Golf, Washers, and Kan Jam. We will also have some tv’s set up outside so we can watch the games.

We’ve invited the youth groups from other area churches to come hang out with us as well. Members from the Baptist church, Charity Christian Center, and 1AG, are invited to cookout with us and we’ve challenged them to a game of Flag Football.

So dust off your cleats, bring some Icy Hot, and play some football with us!

Operation Christmas Child

On Oct. 21st, you are invited to pick up a shoe box to fill for this year’s Operation Christmas Child.  This is a great program that we’ve done for many years now, but if you are new to OPC, you can learn more about it when you visit Samaritan’s Purse.

There, you’ll get great information on how to pack your box, gift suggestions, and you can even print out tracking tickets for your shoeboxes.

25 Years of Operation Christmas Child!

This is the 25th year for OPC so let’s make it one to remember.  Here’s a short video on how this program is transforming lives not just for this world, but for the world to come:

How To Pack Your Box:

Decide if you’ll be purchasing gifts for a boy or a girl.  Then choose an age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-15.  Samaritan’s Purse recommends including one medium to large-sized “wow” item such as an inflatable soccer ball and pump or a doll/stuffed animal and then filling the rest of the box with smaller items like crayons, school supplies, and hygiene items.

When you’ve got everything packed, just return your box to church with money for shipping and we’ll be sure to get it sent out.

If you didn’t get time to fill your shoebox, no problem.  Our youth will spend some time during their group meetings on Sunday, November 4th to fill any boxes that need it.

Boxes must be returned by November 11th!

Trunk Or Treat

We have begun to collect candy for this year’s Trunk or Treat.  You can drop off your goodies in the orange tub by the Youth Board in the atrium.  This will be our 15th year, so let’s make it one to remember!

There are a lot of ways to get involved this year.  As mentioned above, you can donate candy.  You can also sign up to be a door-greeter, help with set-up and clean-up, or help pass out candy to Trick-or-Treaters in your very own booth!  Put on a costume or just decorate your area and have fun with members of our community.  Let’s show them how much we care.

If you need some ideas for your booth, check out these pictures from years past.
