Scripture for October....the time of harvest.....

"As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."....... Matthew 13:23

In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms: classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents or even the open air. School kits may be these childrens' only educational resources.

Starting the week of September 11th, we are beginning an UMCOR School Supply Drive which Bart and Kay will deliver to UMCOR in January. School supply lists are available in the sanctuary, foyers and in the office. A drop off location will be located in the foyer by the church office.

And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
