And:  Put the THANKS back into Thanksgiving by donating turkeys, hams, canned goods and nonperishable items for their Thanksgiving Meal.  Last year over 1000 meals were served and groceries and clothing provided to participants.  But, most importantly, the gospel was shared and many came forward for salvation.  Donations can be brought to the church and put in the bin in the fellowship hall until Sun Nov 19th.  The Mission is still in need of volunteers to help serve on the 23rd.  If you are interested, contact Janine Guadagno (stonehouserj@gmail.com).

Women's Retreat: "She’s Got Issues" is a retreat designed to help Christian women navigate through the different seasons of life and issues that each season can bring. From a young mother balancing a career and family, or a women hitting the prime of her life in retirement, there will be truth s relevant to the issues you are facing. When this world is throwing so much at us that you feel like you are playing “whack a mole” with the circumstances that seek to devour you , “take heart” because Jesus has overcome the world!
