Women on Mission sponsored the Billy Crocker Bake
Off recently held with Austin Brooks and E. J. Perez
declared winners of the trophy for their s’mores and
Churck Manz receiving The Golden Spoon for his
black forest chocolate cake. Several men participated
in the “FUN” event and the ladies gladly sampled all
the desserts.
  WOM held their monthly meeting on October 14 in
the fellowship hall with 14 ladies attending. Deacon,
Bill Mercer, also know as, “Bill Box”, accompanied
his wife, Christy to help her set up for her program,
“Enduring Difficult Days”. Everyone participated
eagerly in the creative part of the presentation by
painting at least two rocks with encouraging messages
to be distributed around town by Bill and Christy. The
missionary spotlight was shone on John Mark Toby
and his wife Cathy of Bowling Green, Kentucky. He is
Director of Missions in the Kentucky area. After a
short devotional on that subject, the group prayed for
missionaries and their needs and then blessed the food.
Refreshments of dip and chips, sandwiches and derby
pie were enjoyed by all. Thanks to the ladies who
prepared and served these goodies.
   The business session was held and Christy reported
that prayer bags for Southgate were delivered to part
of the halls with more to come. The boxes for
collection of these items are still in the fellowship hall
for your convenience. The Samaritans purse boxes are
in the hall under the bulletin board and are due by
November 10. A soup and sandwich lunch will be held
sometime later with proceeds going to the Lottie 

Moon Christmas offering. The goal this year is
$5,500.00 so please pray about your gift for that
important effort.
   God bless you all and pray for our church as we go 
through this transitional period.

   Our Youth sponsored a bean and cornbread supper
on Saturday, October 26th. We had a great turnout.
Everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you to all that
came out for this event and fellowshipped with us.     
We also took the youth to Miner, MO to the
Judgement House on Sunday night, October 27th. It
was truly an awesome experience. If you have never
been, you should definitely plan on going next year. 
    We have a progressive dinner planned for
December and a Christmas party also. 
     Our youth group is growing each week. We have
about 10 kids involved now.  Thank you all for loving
our youth.
