Camp Ozark 2018 Fall Young Adult Retreat, November 9-11                                                                                By Anita Vickers

Seven adults, four children and seven staff from Aurora, Neosho, Berryville and Springfield attended. Anita Vickers and Carly Morrison were co-directors. We enjoyed the spirit of fellowship in class and games including Phase 10, Uno, Dominos, Jinga, Playdoh, puzzles and coloring books. We closed with a contemporary service that included communion in community. The Holy Spirit was strong and everyone was excited about getting together again in the spring of 2019. We hope more young adults and their families will join us then. Photos Anita Vickers

We sustained Mission Center leaders, elected World Conference delegates, adopted a 2019 budget, approved use of funds from sale of Willow Springs and Fisher congregation properties, recognized Evangelist Emeritus Lester Lay of Joplin, and ordained John Brooks of Chapel for Peace to the office of evangelist.

2018 Powderfork Fall Adult Retreat, October 7-10
By Joan Primm, Mission Center Presidency

"Breathe: Christ's Healing and Redeeming Agent" was the theme of the retreat, directed by Nancy Rogers. Guest ministry was by Cindy and Bob Rugg from Indianapolis, Indiana. Cindy is president of the Kentucky-Indiana Mission Center. Studies were from the Reunion Text "Breathe New Life." Activities included creating personal letters to be opened in times of need for encouragement, and creating individual peace flags to be hung in the Temple
during 2019 World Conference. Communion Service was shared the morning of departure. Fellowship services were remarkable.

Fayetteville Congregation Engages Congregants

By Craig Updyke, Pastor

A recent guest speaker was from the Seven Hills homeless shelter in Fayetteville. The congregation was engaged and we got some good feedback from members and friends. We had a large display of items we were getting ready to contribute to the shelter.

Our congregation has been contributing to the shelter for the past twelve years. We have a better understanding of how these resources are used and how they impact the lives of needy persons.
