To our Vets, the gratitude we have for you can never be mentioned enough!
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated
by their nation."
-- George Washington
"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here,
but it can never forget what they did here."
-- Abraham Lincoln
"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."
-- Woodrow Wilson
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
-- John F. Kennedy
"We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause."
-- Ronald Reagan

My fellow Christians,
Our Stewardship Drive for 2020 is ending.
This Sunday is Consecration Sunday.
Please bring your pledge card to turn in during the service.
If you need another card you may print it off below or pick one up at the entrance to the sanctuary.
This year has been a great one for this congregation and the missions it supports. Let's make 2020 even better by generously completing your pledge card. This will happen only if you remember how God has touched your life and respond responsibly to your church. You may bring it by the church M-F, 9:00 to 1:00 or bring it with you to worship on November 10th.
Yours in Christ
P.S. There is a "pay online" option to give your pledge
On the home page, under recent posts you will see the 2020 Pledge link where you can download the document to print and fill it out to bring to the church. That link is a PDF file.

Girls that Give
Did you know?
Most people walk an average
of four miles a day,
but our homeless
neighbors average ten-a painful
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 --
Drive Dates: Oct.
20th - Dec. 20th 2019
Delivery will be made to those in need in time for Christmas !!
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!
Crisis Control Ministry
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,
Christian Action Ministry
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:
Your level of interest
Evenings that you
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.
