the last year and a half. Seven new names will be added to the Memorial
Plaque located in the north section of the sanctuary. They are: Jean
Famuliner, Lewis E. Hockridge, Vinita Hubbard, Lloyd & Joyce Martin, Nancy

us in worship as we honor these dear servants of the Lord.

autumn event with its variety of tasty goodies. This year Fall Food &
Fellowship Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 26, from 8:00 a.m. to
1:00 p.m. Earlene Martin will once again be our coordinator this

Charge Conference Date
Each year the
District Superintendent convenes a meeting known as Charge Conference for the
purpose of handling certain official business for the local churches in the
district. In recent years this has taken the form of groups of U.M.
churches coming together. This year's Charge Conference will be held at
the Chillicothe United Methodist Church on Thursday, October 24, at
2:00 p.m. By definition, members of the Church Council are members
of Charge Conference and are encouraged to attend.
The September-October 2019 issue of the
Upper Room devotional magazine is now available. Pick up a copy at the
back of the sanctuary or on the information table in the hallway. As
always, we have both regular and large print versions.
Bring Us Your Used Inkjet and Toner
Help the church save money on office supplies!
We are part of a program whereby we receive credit for office supplies when we
recycle used printer toner and ink cartridges. Those printer cartridges
are bad for the environment, so don't toss them in the trash; bring them to
church and we'll put them to good use. Thanks for helping.
about our on-going Best Choice Save-A-Label Program! Start saving
them right now if you have not already been doing so. Then bring your UPC
(proof of purchase) labels to church and put them in the can located on a table
in the hallway. The can is marked Best Choice.
Our church's Bereavement Dinner Committee will earn $30 in cash for each bundle
of 1,000 UPC labels.
