First Christian Church of Siloam Springs

Sermon Series:

Thankfulness

Next Sunday (November 18th) will be our Thanks Offering Sunday.  Bring a special gift for missions – you may designate it or simply have it divided among those we support.  We’ll also have a time of prayer for each mission along with thankfulness.

Mission of the Month:

New Beginnings/Choices Pregnancy Services:  Won’t you help us with the annual Baby Bottle Campaign?  Pick up your “Baby Bottle” at the Welcome Center and be part of this ministry.  Place your spare change, bills, or a check in the empty bottle and return it by December 2.  You may always give a special donation by designating it on your check (on your memo line), or any gift to missions will be apportioned among all the missions we support.

C.E.N.T. Christmas Sock and Glove Tree:

The tree will be set up in the foyer until Dec. 2.  Bring socks and gloves to decorate the tree and bring toys to be given to the children around the Oklahoma Kiamichi Mountains.

Board Minutes:

A copy of the September approved board minutes will be in a communication box (church board side), for anyone who would like one.

Upcoming Events:

There will be no TLC and After School program on Wednesday, 21 November.

On Friday, 30 November, beginning at 10:00 A.M. we will be decorating the church for the holidays.  We will work until the job is done and could use your help even it is only for an hour.  A light lunch will be provided.

Our next luncheon will be December 2, following services.

Purchase Your Holiday Poinsettias:

This year we are offering an opportunity to purchase poinsettias to decorate the church sanctuary.  You can designate each plant as being in memory of a loved one, or in honor of someone for a special achievement.  Plants will cost $10.  After our Christmas Eve services, you may take them home.  Plants will be ordered through the Kiwanis, so profits will also help local organizations for children and teens.  You can order plants for yourself, or as gifts, as well as ones for the church.  The sign-up sheet is at the Welcome Center.  Deadline is November 11.

Are You Interested in Teaching Sunday School?

Beginning in January, we will be looking for someone to teach in the youth department.  Please see Rachel Whitaker or Paula Whitaker for details.
