We will begin a new registration process to check in kids, ages nursery to 5th grade on Sunday November 18th. The safety of our children is a high priority. Please stop and see Matt Desmarais at the registration desk (not to be confused with the front desk of the Y) which will be located at the back of the lobby, prior to heading down the hall for church, and check in kids in that age group. If you have questions contact Matt at email@example.com
COME WITH US TO THE HOLY LAND AS WE WALK WHERE JESUS WALKED
We are considering taking a trip to Jerusalem during the Christmas break of 2019-2020 (next year). It is an amazing experience and the sights, sounds, and smells of the ancient places will literally make your faith come alive! On the trip we will have an opportunity to see the place of Christ's birth, baptism, death, and Resurrection. We will see places where he performed miracles such as walking on the water, multiplying the loaves and fishes, and healing Peter's mother-in-law. We will see places where Christ preached, where Herod ruled, where the Temple stood, where David hid from Saul, and so much more. We will worship together, pray together, talk together, and strengthen and grow bonds of friendships that will prove to be powerful upon our return home! If you are interested in the trip, we will have a short interest meeting immediately after both services on November 18 to discuss exact itinerary, price, fundraising, and answer any questions you may have! Direct questions to Joey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Advent is the official start of the Christmas season. On Saturday December 1st we are going to have fun night for the WHOLE church to kickoff Christmas and Advent!
Prepare ye the way…
We will start with a breakfast themed potluck diner at 6:45 in the YMCA gym. Bring your favorite breakfast food to share, and the church will have juice, coffee, and a hot chocolate bar! After the dinner we will make an Advent Wreath for people to take home and light throughout the Advent season. Joey will do a short teaching on how to use the Advent Wreath in your personal and family prayer time. (We ask that you make a $10 donation per wreath to cover the cost of the materials.) Finally, we will end the night watching the Christmas movie The Star. All the kids are encouraged to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas! This will be a fun night for everyone. Invite your friends, and don't miss out!
A signup page will be sent out soon so that we can get enough supplies. Be on the lookout for it and sign up as soon as you can!
If you have missed all the easy options for returning either Christmas boxes or Thanksgiving bags there is now only one recourse: email Chris Cooper at email@example.com She will direct you on the best course of action.
Toward the hope of reducing our usage of disposables, we invite you to bring your re-usable coffee mug to church to fill it with our delicious Land of a Thousand Hills coffee that we serve. It will taste even better out of your own cup, and we’ll also be helping the environment. Cheers!
For those who have had health concerns about the nursery at the YMCA…it has been cleaned and sanitized. We trust there will be no more issues bringing your kids to the nursery.
There is to be a special fundraiser dinner at Sugar Creek Restaurant on November 30th, in aid of Room in the Inn. Tickets are $25, and rumor has it they sell out pretty quick. Della has 15 tickets that can be purchased immediately. You can contact Chris Cooper over the next couple weeks to get one of these. Once those are sold, tickets can also be purchased from : Donna 252-261-6266 or Gail 252-207-8820.
There will be a silent auction also to benefit Room in the Inn. If you have a business and would like to donate a gift certificate, or if you engage in a craft of some sort and would like to donate an item, please contact Della.

Church of the Outer Banks will hold services at the Comfort Inn in Kill Devil Hills, Milespost 9.5 on the beach road, on Sunday November 11th. This change is necessary because of the YMCA’s involvement in the Outer Banks Marathon that weekend, thus making it unavailable to us that day.

There will be one service that day, at 10:10am. The early service will NOT be held.
There will be nursery provided, but there will not be any Sunday School. Family Service, all ages.

Ladies, what happens when we stop worrying about a challenging world full of difficult people and instead simply love everybody? If this sounds interesting come to our Fall study! We will be walking through the book “Everybody Always” by Bob Goff. It’s an easy read full of humor and lighthearted stories about loving people as Jesus did.
We will start next Wednesday 9/26 at the church office from 7-8:30. Amazon currently has the book for $11.59 and used for $6.42. Click the link to go directly to their website to order: https://www.amazon.com/Everybody-Always-Becoming-Setbacks-Difficult/dp/0718078136
In addition to the study each week we will be practicing ways to connect with the Lord and building our capacity for Joy!
SET UP TEAMS
Worship at the YMCA is always wonderful... And it happens seamlessly because of our wonderful volunteers. These folks give a bit of their time to show up a little early to get the gym set up Please consider helping us on Sunday Morning. The current commitment is two Sundays on, two off, and it's a great way to serve. Please see Nelson Pendleton (email@example.com) or Trahey Maner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Pastor Joey.
