Photo Booth Open This Sunday
October 26 & November 2
An important part of belonging to an authentic community is getting to know each other. Seeing photos of our church family can be a big help. That’s the idea behind creating an online photo directory.
Sunday in the Gathering Place, you and your family can have a photo taken and it will be added to our member directory. There is no charge.
The online member directory is nearing completion. It will be password protected. Everyone who has participated by having their photo taken will be given access to the directory when it goes online.
Trunk or Treat
Trunk or Treat is this Wednesday, October 29. This family-friendly event is a great time to invite someone you have been building a relationship with where you live, work and play. All kids from preschool to grade 6 are encouraged to wear their favorite non-scary costume and collect candy from decorated cars. Trunk or Treat is open from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in our church parking lots.
A free hot dog dinner will be served, starting at 4:30 p.m. by the Hunter Street Student Building. Small Groups provide a decorated car and give out candy to all those in costumes. Groups are responsible for staffing the vehicle and providing giveaway candy.
We’re collecting bags of candy (no gum) to give out that night. Bring your donation to the Church Office or Small Group. In the event of rain, Trunk or Treat will not be held. As a reminder, there will be no other activities that night and Trunk or Treat has a “no pets” policy.
On Sunday, November 2, our church will celebrate what God has done this year through missions and will provide you opportunities to discover where God may be leading you to go in 2015. You’ll hear stories from our members, have a beignet in the gym and even see live goats and learn how they are connected to missions. Most importantly, you will learn how you can pray, give and go.
Bring Snack Items to Missions Expo
We can all help feed hungry people. On Sunday, November 2, bring snack items to the Missions Expo in the Gym. These will be collected and given to the Baptist Friendship House in New Orleans, a Hunter Street ministry partner. This is a North American Mission Board ministry that ministers to the needs of women and children in NOLA. Bring the following:
- Snack-size protein/meal bars
- Pop-top fruit cups or puddings
- Cans of Vienna sausages
- Small packs of cookies
- Packs of peanut butter crackers
In addition to snack items, will you also contribute money toward world hunger relief? Funds collected will help our International Mission Board missionary partners in Niger feed hungry children. 100% of any money given goes directly to the missions field.
What is Christian Persecution?
Christians in 60 countries across the world are persecuted for the name of Jesus Christ. Persecution can take the form of verbal harassment to hostile feelings, attitudes and actions. It can also include campaigns to exterminate or drive away people or a people group because of their religion, race or beliefs. Believers in areas with severe religious restrictions often pay a heavy price for their faith.
Sunday, November 2 is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Find out more about the persecuted church and how you can pray at opendoorsusa.org or persecution.com.
