2016 October 2 Announcements

Our October collection will be for Apostolic Christian HarvestCall. The purpose of this collection is to provide humanitarian aid and volunteer labor to alleviate human misery and suffering throughout the world, first to the household of faith, and then to others as much as we are able, in a way that is a Christian witness and brings glory to God. Our Goodfield donations are administered by the National HarvestCall committee. The rebuilding efforts in Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma are examples of projects that will be supported by this fund.

Help is needed unloading trucks at the food pantry this Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. Please see Sis. Dawn Maloney if you have any questions.

The first night for ACTIVE will be this Wednesday evening.

There will be singing at the Eureka Home this Saturday evening at 6:45pm. Everyone is welcome to come.

There will be a Men's Sing on Monday, October 17th 7pm at Bro. Mike & Sis. Jenise Wiegand's home.

The annual Eureka Home Benefit Dinner is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Goodfield Fellowship Hall. Tickets are available at the Home office starting Sept. 29th. The Home's mission is "Providing loving care in the Spirit of Christ". We encourage all ages to come and support the evening.

Kurt and Sis. Joan in this way. If you have any interest or questions, please contact Bro. Nathan or Sis. Laura as soon as possible.

Please continue to pray for Bro. Alfred Keiser as he is still in OSF recovering from surgery.
