Poinsettias for Sale— Beginning November 2, the flower committee will offer poinsettias for sale for Christmas. This year we are offering seven-inch pots with gold foil and four color choices of poinsettias: red, pink, burgundy, and the favorite, Monet. All orders must be in by Monday, November 24, so don’t delay or miss out! Sign up and help spread Christmas joy!

               Operation Christmas Child - A Gospel Opportunity
Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse,
is a way for us to do immeasurably more. They collect giftfilled
shoeboxes and deliver them in the name of Jesus
Christ to children living in desperate situations around the
world. Each shoebox is a gospel opportunity to tell a child that Jesus loves them and has not forgotten them. Let’s do our part; last year LMC sent 113 boxes, and our goal this year is to send 150!

Return your gift-filled box by Sunday, November 23, when your gospel opportunity will begin its journey to one of nine million hurting children around the world
