There will be work days on Thursday's, September 20 and 27 at an elderly lady's home in Roanoke who has back problems and is unable to do the work herself. We plan to paint (indoors) and do yard work on the 20th and 27th.  We would like to start at 10am. We also need a couple of handy men for some projects in the home. Please see Sis. Dawn Maloney if you can help.

Our next family hymn sing is planned for Sunday, September 23rd at Bro. Larry and Sis. Lori’s Lakehouse Cabin. We plan to have a wiener roast at 5:00 pm followed by a 6:15 pm singing.

There is a sign-up sheet at the message center for food for the baptisms for Marisa, Brooke and Sabrina on Sunday, September 30. It is Group 1's turn. We do not need waitresses. Thank you so much for your help!

Loving Shepherd Ministries will be hosting a meal and charity auction for the vulnerable children of Haiti and Ethiopia on Friday, October 12, 2018, at the Five Points Washington.  The meal and Silent Auction start at 5:30PM with the Live Auction starting at 6:30PM. Items are still needed. This year, we are requesting all bakers to submit their best desserts for a special desserts section of our Silent Auction. If you would like to donate an item and/or dessert, please contact  Bro. Wade or Sis. Hallie Wettstein.  The auction is a wonderful evening of fellowship and enjoyment while raising much needed funds to help the world’s most vulnerable children. There will be free childcare provided, so couples with young children are encouraged to attend.

Note from Bro. Herman Glueck: Sara and I had the privilege of spending part of a day in Chicago (Northwestern Hospital downtown) (Monday 9/10) to see an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in bone cancer patients. He basically told us to go ahead with radiation, there was nothing to do surgically @ this point, my hip should heal on its own assuming the radiation knocks the cancer on my hip and pelvis. So, we are very thankful for that, thank you for the prayers!! The plan is to do 10 days of radiation treatments to the hip, then start some new chemo after that. I did start radiation treatments on Wednesday (9/12) and will do that for 10 week days straight.

We are very thankful to announce that Toby Plattner and Sydney Swords are at peace with God and man and desire baptism. Please pray for and encourage them during this most important time in life.  If you have any words of encouragement or concerns, please contact them.  Toby is the son of Bro. Kurt and Sis. Joan and Sydney is the daughter of Bro. Kris and Sis. Heather. We are planning for their testimonies and baptisms on October 27th and 28th. We are so thankful that God is still patient and calling souls to repentance and conversion.
