2017 October 1 Announcements

Our October collection is for Hospital Lumiere in Haiti.  It takes a large sum of money to maintain a 120-bed hospital in Haiti.  By the grace of God, the Haitians have asked our Apostolic Christian Church and the World Relief Committee to oversee & manage this hospital.  What a blessing it’s been. As you know Bro. Kurt and Sis. Joan Plattner serve at the Hospital. Please consider giving to this very worthy cause.

The Apostolic Christian HarvestCall benefit auction for Hospital Lumiere is planned for Friday, November 10 at Five Points in Washington. The food court and silent auction start at 4:30. The live auction begins at 7:00. For more information, or to donate an item or service, see the announcement on the church bulletin board or visit the HarvestCall website.

The first Tuesday of the month unloading dates at Eureka food pantry are the following three dates through the end of the year: October 3 October 31 and December 5. Please make note of theses dates.  Help is needed at noon.

Anyone with a heart for writing cards of encouragement to hurricane victims ... there is information in the back hall by the bulletin board. Please take cards each week and deliver the back to the basket provided.

There will be ACTIVE this Wednesday evening. 4th grade and below will be outside. Please have your children dress accordingly.

The James bible study books for the young group guys are in the men’s coat room. Please take one if you don't already have one.

We plan to have testimonies and baptisms for Kendahl Evans the weekend of October 7th and 8th. Testimonies will begin Saturday evening at 7pm. Bro. Trent Meiss plans to be with us.

The Annual Eureka Home Benefit Dinner is scheduled for Saturday, October 28 at the Goodfield Fellowship Hall. Tickets are available at the Home front desk starting September 28th. We encourage all ages to come & support the Home!

Just a reminder to listen to the conference recording for this week.  Bro. Dan Kilgus has this week’s talk and it is about our relationships with the extended body of Christ.

Letter to the church from Bro. Erik & Sis. Carrie Wiegand:

Dear Church Family,

Greetings to all of you from hot sunny Zambia. We would like to sincerely thank you for your prayers and support over the last 4+ years. As we have known and spoken to other missionaries, we have come to realize just how special our church is. We have been so blessed and humbled by your thoughtfulness and care for us. It enables us to serve in ways we couldn’t alone.

For quite some time as a couple, and a serving family, we have been wrestling through some issues. Seeking God’s will and not our own, we sense God’s direction to move back to the U.S.  The details of our decision are too involved to mention here, but we sense His peace as we continue to move forward.

We have no illusions as to the challenges facing us in the next several months.  Starting over is going to be difficult, but we trust in the One who has brought us this far. He has shown Himself faithful and trustworthy in the past and we know He will never leave or forsake us.  At this point, Erik has accepted a job in the area. We plan to worship and serve with our brothers and sisters here in Goodfield. We look forward to becoming reacquainted with you and meeting those who have moved in since we left.

Please continue to pray for us as we navigate all the difficult decisions ahead of us.  We only desire to serve the Lord in whatever capacity He sees fit.  Please pray that He will shed light on our path and that we will be obedient and sensitive to the Spirit.

With humbled and thankful hearts,

Erik and Carrie and kids
