International Luncheon

International food

Since this Sunday is Missions Sunday, please join us for an International Luncheon in the Fellowship Hall starting at 12:30 pm.  Each family is asked to bring a main or side dish…as well as a salad or dessert…large enough to serve several!  Let’s see how many international foods we can savor!  If you are able to help set up, serve, or clean up, please contact Ellen Lemke.

Coffee and Conversation

Missions Sunday – November 24

Santosh Thomas from Kashmir will be here for our annual Missions Sunday (November 24).  Every nation, every tribe, every generation, every person—that’s God’s loving heart for the world.  Come…and have your heart stirred again by what is in God’s heart.

Then share fellowship with Santosh and each other at our International Luncheon afterward. Please consider bringing an international main or side dish plus a salad or dessert. Let’s see how many different countries can be represented…perhaps food we will all recognize (polish sausage, beef stroganoff, Hungarian goulash, strudel, creme brulee, etc.) or perhaps something new to try like pancit.

If you would like to decorate the center of a table around the theme of a specific country, let the Tammy Tucker team know…suggestions are Cameroon, Thailand, Philippines, India, America (for Western Avenue), Dominican Republic, Peru, WFI Country, etc.

Let’s work together to make it meaningful and fun!

Next Sunday, September 15, will have a Believer’s Baptism  in the Sanctuary during the 9:30 am worship service.  Water baptism is an outward sign or testimony of the inward work of the Holy Spirit, who baptizes the believer into the Body of Christ.   (Matthew 3:11, 1 Corinthians 12:13)   In doing this, we identify ourselves with our risen Lord and Savior.  If you are ready to publicly declare your faith as a follower of Jesus Christ,  please let an Elder know by Tuesday, September 10.
