Fall Festival October 31Fall Festival is almost here and you can feel it in the air! We are almost at 90% of our 35,000-candy goal with over 30,000 pieces of candy so far. We’ve almost hit our volunteer goal as well. In addition to volunteers needed for set-up, we only need a few more flexible volunteers willing to be moved around on the night of Fall Festival! Please also be praying for the hearts of the families and children we will be privileged to serve and all the volunteers and staff who will be serving.

From the Church CouncilSam Mouck, Operations Manager, reported that the “buzz in only” process to our church receptionist to enter the building on weekdays is now actively in force. Matt Harris, who heads up our IT department, recently negotiated a new contract with our internet service which will save the church a good bit of money in our budget. Sam also reported that our Print Ministry/Copy Center is running smoothly; most of our printing needs are taken care of in-house which saves the church from having to contract outside printing services. Thanks to our printing and production team for the great job they do!
