BONFIRE OUTREACH
    The Missions Committee is planning a bonfire at the parson-age for the community this fall, including s’mores, singing, a pumpkin gospel presentation, and maybe a hayride. Everyone interested in helping or just wanting to find out more about it is asked to stay after church for a short meeting to discuss a date for the event and to get other input.
    Some things that are needed for this event are a trailer for the hayride and some firewood. Let Pastor Marty know if you can help with either need.

COMMUNION & HEALING SERVICE
    Our next Communion Service will be held Sunday, Oct 3. Also, if you would like to be anointed with oil and prayed for by the elders, please come forward at the end of the service. Others are asked to remain in the sanctuary to quietly pray or to exit the sanctuary to enjoy fellowship in the foyer.

A Live, Virtual Alliance Family Event…
“FOR ALL THE WORLD: A NIGHT OF GENEROSITY”
    On Friday, October 8, The C&MA National Office is hosting another live, virtual Alliance family event – For All the World:      A Night of Generosity – as we celebrate what God has done, is currently doing, and what we trust He will continue to do through the pioneering missionary spirit He breathed into us.

    This virtual family event will include ~~
•           A never-before-seen video highlighting the work of Mabel Francis, an “Alliance Rebel” who opened gospel ministries among highly resistant people in Japan during the heart World War II – and was later bestowed the country’s highest civilian honor
•           Compelling reports from international workers serving in the next, hard-to-reach gospel frontiers
•           An inspiring message from Cheryl, a pioneering Alliance worker who, with her husband Darrell, faced enormous adversity and opposition – and witnessed God do amazing things throughout the Middle East

    The event, hosted by President John Stumbo, will be streamed at both 6:15 PM and 8:30 PM on October 8 and accessible to the entire Alliance family. We hope you’ll participate as we celebrate together the past, present, and future fulfillment of our vision: All of Jesus for All the World.
