Daylight Savings:  Daylight Savings time ends Sunday, November 2nd.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before you retire on Saturday, November 1st.

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 this morning, 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:  It’s not too late to donate goodies!!!  We are assembling the boxes on Tuesday, October 28th, 7:00 p.m., at the home of Ron and Marion Kopec.  Bring your items and join the “packing party.”  We are sending out 13 this year, so plan accordingly.
