Girls that Give

Did you know?
Most people walk an average  of four miles a day, 
but our homeless  neighbors average ten-a painful  difference.

Did you know?
Socks are the least-donated clothing items 
and yet the most in-demand for our local brothers and sisters in desperate need.

There are two main reasons socks are among the most valuable
piece of clothing to people without permanent housing:
1. Feet work overtime when there's no cozy home
    (and laundry room) to return to each night.
2. Socks and underwear aren't often donated
    or, when they are,  the goods cannot be sanitized and put to use.

Help us help the homeless!

New socks of any style or color --  Sizes infant to adult --  Gloves --  Toboggans

Drive Dates: Oct.  20th - Dec. 20th 2019

Delivery will be made to those in need in time for Christmas !!
Crisis Control Ministry

Dear Friends,

Crisis Control Ministry has requested for the month of November COOKING OIL. 
I will admit that it is not the most exciting thing to gather, but it is an essential ingredient. 
In today's world, emphasis is on healthy meals and healthy meals begin with healthy ingredients. 
I would suggest you choose Canola or Corn oil in small containers  so that your gift can be shared by more people.  I saw a billboard today stating "Hunger never takes a Vacation." 
With the holidays quickly approaching, put several of those bottles in your cart, 
and place them in the white bin in the Education Hallway. 

As always, you will be blessed,
Becky Minnix

Youth Happenings

Hello and Happy November!

Thanks so much to all the youth and their families who helped make this year's Trunk-or-treat a success. Their face-painting talent and trunk-decorating skills were a sight to behold! :)
During the month of November, our theme will be Service. We will discuss ways that we can serve God and others in the different spheres of our community. Each week, we will pick one ministry that we feel God is leading us to support in each of these four spheres:

Week one: Our Church's ministries
Week two: Winston-Salem ministries
Week three: United States ministries
Week four: International ministries

Please keep these students in your prayers as they continue to be the hands and feet of Christ in their communities!

DWM/CWF Day Group

Come join us on Monday, November 18th, at 3:00 p.m. in the church library as we continue studying the book, "Bad Girls of the Bible", by Liz Curtis Higgs.  This month's study will focus on "Rehab and Joshua 2:1-21; 6:1-25". All church women are invited to join us!


To those interested in renewing our PINC (Partners In Christ) meetings, please respond in an e-Mail. In your answer, please relate the following answers:
  1. Your level of interest
  2. Evenings that you Cannot meet
  3. Types of activities that interest you
Our goal is to meet together and get to know each other in a more personal way. In sharing various activities, I think we accomplish that in a very Christ-like way.

In the past in addition to opening devotionals (when appropriate) we have performed several service projects - Valentine and Easter Baskets for seniors, Preparation of eggs for our Easter egg hunt,and help with fund-raising projects of the church. In addition we have prepared items for sale to raise funds and had sale of donated items.  We have also participated in fun activities such as movies, bowling, art and wine parties, and dinners out. We also had interesting speakers for our meetings as well as instructors for arts and crafts projects.

Your response to this message is important in deciding the future of PINC.
