Mid Week Messenger November 13th
1 God’s House Kidz to sing on the 24th
If your child (preK-6th grade) would like to be part of a children’s choir, under the direction of Matthew Beard, on November 24, there will be a brief rehearsal at 11:15 this Sunday, November 17. Please contact the Church Office to let Mr. Beard know your child will be participating. (Do you know a family without a church home whose child loves to sing? Please invite them to be a part of this fun event.)
2 Kingdom Giving
How will we build the Kingdom of God in 2020? How will we continue to live into our vision to be disciples who make disciples to bless the world with Christ’s love? Members and friends, you’ll have received your estimate-of-giving card in the mail by now. Please consider your commitment and return the cards this Sunday.
3 A good ol’ Thanksgiving service
Join us on Sunday, November 24--and invite a friend--as we celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving service with songs, hymns, and readings. We’ll have a special testimony offered by our own Joey Gacnik, and the God’s House Kids will sing, “Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart.”
4 Turkey Chase
Strap on your sneakers and join us at 8 a.m. on the 24th for the Turkey Chase through La Junta. It’s a 5K (3.1 mile) route to walk, jog, or run. Return to the church for refreshments and worship to follow.
5 House to rent?
A local family with whom we’ve been in contact is looking for a new home to rent. If you know of a reasonably priced rental home that will accommodate 6 people, please contact the Church Office or Pastor MJ directly.
6 Joy Story
