Thanks to all of you that came for Grandparents' Day.  All enjoyed the Columbus Children's Theater production of The Three Little Pigs and lunch afterward.  It was a special day indeed.

Did you know the church sponsors a basketball league for boys and girls ages K-12.

Next Sunday the church will host its annual Trunk or Treat Plus event.  It's a fun and safe place to enjoy costumes and candy with friends and neighbors.  Hope to see you there.

Veteran's Day

We honor all of those that have served and are currently serving our country.  On Thursday, November 9th at 10:15 we will hold our annual Veteran's Day assembly in the sanctuary.  Please invite any current or former military personnel you know.  The staff and students will honor their service.  More details to come.

What is The FEAST?

Every year we gather as a school community for a turkey dinner.  Students invite family and the pastoral staff serves up lunch.  It's a special day you don't want to miss.  Mark your calendars for November 21st and look for more details to come.

This Week in Chapel

This week in chapel Pastor Ashley brought the students a great lesson about the importance of obeying the Lord when he asks us to going the extra mile.  It is easy to think hard work is someone else's job, but the Bible was the very first book that talked about having grit.  Jesus taught is someone asks you to go one mile, then you should go two without complaint.  In practical terms for all of us, we need to give that extra effort whether it is in the home, in the classroom or witnessing to others.  Have a conversation with your kids about what going the extra mile means to them.
