GREETINGS, EVERYONE! Happy Saturday! The turn of seasons is finally here, it seems, and we are thankful for cooler days and evenings. Especially when it comes to moving, which is a segue to a particular need today.
We have someone moving to Maysville from Warsaw, MO, who has requested some help in unloading her U-Haul this evening (Saturday). The time will be around 7 or 8 pm. We have 3 or 4 helping, but could use another 2 or 3 strong hands on deck as we are not sure what items she has to unload. The house is two-bedroom, and it is just one person, a nice Baptist lady of retirement age or so. If you are available to help, please let me know by texting me at 479-238-3772. I will give you details on the location then (it is a house between Bartlett Park and the water tower).
MMO: The Mission/Vision team has set the goal for $1500 for the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering. So far we have received $910. Well done, so far, church. We have one more Sunday to officially receive the offering. Pray about what the Lord would have you give. You can read more about it at this link.
Operation Christmas Child is fast approaching. If you would like to participate, please visit the table in the narthex for more information. Contact: Mary Morrow
