CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO WERE CONFIRMED

CHURCH PICNIC SUCCESS AND THANKS

Yesterday’s church picnic was a huge success. Lots of fun, plenty of food, and fellowship in abundance.

Item of note— the adults reign victorious over the youth on the Kickball field. And the half-time show (also known as ‘getting the ball out of the tree’) was very entertaining for players and onlookers alike. The sideshow (also known as ‘retrieving the bean bags that were being used to free the ball and themselves got stuck in the tree’) was also worth a lot of laughs.

Thankfully the winds died down enough for the bounce house to remain inflated. In general the weather was on our side yesterday.

BIG THANKS GO TO ALL WHO BROUGHT FOOD, FOR ALL WHO HELPED IN ANY WAY, AND ESPECIALLY TO ADAM & JOANA HOUFF, AND TO KEITH AND SARAH HOUFF, AND TO KEITH’S BROTHER, MITCH, WHO ALL WORKED HARD FROM SET-UP TO CLEAN-UP, MAKING THE CHURCH PICNIC A GREAT TIME FOR EVERYONE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD 2018 -- TWO WEEKS TIL DROP OFF

UPDATE: THE DATE FOR RETURNING YOUR SHOE-BOXES FOR OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD IS FAST APPROACHING. NOVEMBER 4TH IS ONLY TWO WEEKS AWAY. TIME TO ‘SHOP TIL YOU DROP’ FOR FILLING THESE GIFT BLESSINGS TO THE CHILDREN WHO RECEIVE THEM.

LABELS FOR YOUR GIFT BOX ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BACK OF THE GYM BY THE DOOR, or you can go online to the following link and download a label and get information for how you can track your box to its destination. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/follow-your-box/

Boxes are now available for you to take and fill to the brim with small gifts for a child in one of the many countries to which Samaritan's Purse takes them. Decide if you wish to fill your box for a child of 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. Then buy school supplies, toiletries, toys, a t shirt...and what they call a Wow! gift. A note from you or your own child is a great addition to the box. Pray for the child who will receive your box. Labels will shortly be available, or you can go online to Samaritan's Purse and print off a bar-coded one. This enables you to track your box and eventually find out where yours goes, which is so interesting.

Please bring your boxes to church on November 4. Thank you for the wonderful boxes given last year...we know this year's boxes will be just as exciting for the young recipients!

IMPORTANT LOCATION UPDATE -- NOVEMBER 11TH

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.

Bob Goff Book.jpg

Ladies Evening Bible Study

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!

Peace,
Brandie

SUNDAY MORNING SET UP TEAMS

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 (william_pendleton@nps.gov) or Trahey Maner (enlessumr@hotmail.com) or Pastor Joey.
