Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child
Collection Day is November 18.
There is only one more week of operation Christmas Child.  Help us reach our goal of 100 boxes.  The sole purpose is to reach children for Jesus and to communicate God’s love to them.  We have the opportunity to share God’s love simply by packing a shoebox. Please pray for our boxes as they start their journey. Remember that each box needs $9 to get to its destination.  Thank you for supporting this ministry.

National Wreaths Across America
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, December 15, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at National Cemeteries across the United States, at sea and abroad. Join us by sponsoring a veterans’ wreath at Fort Bayard National Cemetery or by volunteering. Contact Mary Cowan at or at 575-538-2626 to order a wreath for a loved one or just to honor a veteran.

“God, please let every veteran of our nation’s armed forces feel truly and appropriately honored by the attention and appreciation of their fellow citizens. Let no one feel forgotten or neglected. Let every man and woman, young or old, feel the deep and enduring gratitude of our nation and its inhabitants.” Amen

Marriage: Becoming One
Even though the institution of marriage is present in every culture across the world, it is clear that most of humanity does not know or apply the fullness of God’s wisdom to marriage—they miss the mystery, and all the joy it unlocks! In this issue, we address some of the joys and hard places of pursuing marriage as God intended. Click here to read about Gods inteded marriage for you in Revive Magazine.

Business/Deacons Meetings:  
 All members are encouraged to attend the Business Meetings that are held on the first Wednesday after the first Sunday of the month.  Business meetings begin at 7:00 pm.  The next meeting will be on 
Wednesday, December 5th.

 Missions Offering
The church is accepting offerings for Isaac Bannie, a Liberian evangelist.  This offering will be used by Isaac to feed his orphans and go into the villages and preach.  This will be a continuous giving opportunity.
Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for quicker, easier form of communication.  Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin.  DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, will be used.  If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.

Please call to make arrangements to visit with Dan. Dan can be reached at church at 535-2977, home at 535-4777, or on his NEW cell phone at 575-654-2134.  For current church information
