The Deacons’ Fund for October will go to Family Promise.  Please give generously!

Youth Group Kick-off:  Middle and High School parents and youth are invited to our Youth Group Kick-off next Sunday, October 19th, 6:00 p.m., in the Nursery.  Dinner will be provided—please R.S.V.P. by Friday, October 17th to Pastor Amy or the church office so she will know how much food to prepare.

Study Group Thursday Evenings:  Please join us for a group study entitled, “Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations,” based on the book and materials by Robert Schnase.  The study combines DVDs, scripture, and discussion.  Anyone can attend, and feel free to bring a friend.  The study runs from 7-8:30 p.m., and will continue for six weeks at Pam Fielding’s home in Vernon.  Her address is 3 Stone Ridge Road, Sussex, NJ  07461.  Please call her at 973-534-7488 with any questions.  Feel free to attend any or all Thursday sessions…you are welcome whenever you can make it!  If you wish to purchase the book by the same name and author, there are several on sale on Amazon.com for under $2.00, and if you would like Pam to order one for you, just let her know.  Book purchase is optional.

Study Group Sunday Mornings:  Many of you have expressed an interest to participate but do not wish to drive to Vernon in the evenings.  Therefore, starting Sunday, October 19th, 9:15 a.m. in the Fellowship Room, Pam will be leading the same study, “Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations,” every Sunday at 9:15 a.m. until the study is completed in mid-December.  Come get a dose of inspiration, and do it for the love of God!

Family PromiseFamily Promise is reaching out to all churches to find out if any of their volunteers would be interested in being on the universal email list.  There are times when other churches are looking for extra volunteers.  If any of your volunteers would like to be put on the universal email list, please have them email Ashley@scihn.org and she will add them to the list.  Thank you in advance.

Care Package Ministry:  Please e-mail Marion Kopec at mkopec6841@aol.com with names and addresses of college students (full-time, part-time, away or local, degree, undergrad, or advanced, etc.), using “Care Package Ministry” in the subject line.  We will be collecting items, in quantities of 10, to be sent to our college students.  Regardless of home or away, we want to show them our support.  Suggested items include:  cookies, candies, mints, gum, chips, popcorn, flashlights, toothbrush/paste, post-its, etc.  A more complete list is available on the table in the narthex.  Cash donations are appreciated as well, and the items will be bought for you.  Thank you.
