Chili Cook Off at Time and Talent Youth -- As in years past, we just ask that folks bring their favorite chili to share and everyone in attendance will vote on their favorites. Youth will help serve.
The UMF Cookie Walk Returns! On Sunday morning, December 4th Fellowship Hall will be filled with tables of festive and delicious cookies to purchase. To make this a successful event, UMF is also looking for donations. Donating a few dozen of your favorite cookies is a wonderful way to share your tasty recipe with others while filling your own box with various cookies for your holiday gatherings. Whether purchasing, donating, or doing both, United Women of Faith appreciate your participation.
New Church Photo Directory: Each Sunday, through November 4th, we will have pictures taken for a New Photo Directory. An in-house project, the cost will be $10 to help cover the cost. You will be emailed a digital copy of your family photo for you to print at your local photo shop (Walgreen’s, Walmart, Shutterfly). Please be sure your current email is on file with the church. If you are interested in helping with this project, contact Pastor Matt (email@example.com).

Please follow this link to make an order online or email/text Josh Hay (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to place an order and pay by check. All orders will be delivered and ready for pick up either Saturday, November 19th or Sunday, November 20th. Deliveries can be arranged as well as needed. Thanks so much for your support!
