CHILDREN'S SABBATH

Sunday, October 14 is Children’s Sabbath. This is the day we come to celebrate the sacred worth of all children. We are reminded that God has entrusted to us the care and well-being of the young people in our church, community, and world. We will also have an opportunity to connect and support the work of United Methodist Family Services to care for children and youth. The preschool is also celebrating their 60th anniversary and following the service, the church and preschool will have a cookout and celebration.

THE TEDDY BEAR BRIGADE/GLEANING FOR THE WORLD (GFTW)

We are collecting cuddly, new or gently used (clean) stuffed animals for The Teddy Bear Brigade. (no battery operated or oversized animals, please).   The Brigade collects stuffed animals for children around the world (including the US) to help them feel God’s love in the midst of natural disasters, wars, and escape from homelands. It is something of their own they can hug and hold. www.teddybearbrigade.com or www.gftw.com   Please place the animals on the designated table in the back of sanctuary. The deadline for donations is Sunday, October 21.  For more information contact Sherrill Hendricks, Mission Chair, 703- 960-7437 or turkbay13@gmail.com
