October Mission Collection
We are continuing to stock the nearly bare shelves of New Covenant’s Cupboard. The best items to bring are protein-rich foods such as tuna and other canned meats, canned meals like spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, cereal, canned or dry milk, peanut butter, jelly, granola/protein bars, canned fruits/veggies/tomatoes, and other non-perishable food. Please place your donations in the missions area by the St. Francis window.
Sermon Reflections, starting October 1
Do you sometimes leave worship on Sunday thinking about the sermon and wanting to delve more deeply into the topic, to focus on how you might be challenged during the coming week and how you might apply what you have heard? A new Sunday morning small group called Sermon Reflections starts on October 1 and will meet every Sunday at 11 a.m. in the conference room. 
Halloween Tailgate, October 29 @ 5 p.m.
The annual even is fun for the entire family, young and old! We need lots of vehicles, trunk decorated or not, to come pass out candy to our trunk-or-treaters. We will also be selling hot dogs, popcorn, pop, nachos, and cocoa for $1 each. There are also free hayrack rides, pony rides, a moonwalk, and more.  All proceeds go towards next summer’s Vacation Bible School.
