From The Pastor..

Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have reinvented the way we watch TV and engage with media. When given complete control and essentially unlimited options, a curious thing happens.  There are a number of people who just keep re-watching the same thing over and over again. While I am sure there are all kinds of shows with devoted fans, the one that might have the best known following is The Office.   The Office has gained a reputation as being a show that is worth binging again and again.

 FROM THE FOOD PANTRY ... Matthew 25: 37 & 40; (37) ..."Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you...?" (40)..."I tell you the truth, whatever you did, for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

FOOD DRIVE

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 20th to volunteer! The NJUMC Food Pantry will have its 10th Annual Community Food Drive. Volunteers will be needed for (2) hour shifts at Dollar Store (NJ & Knox), Bailey's and Save-A-Lot to hand out fliers to shoppers as they enter the store listing the food items needed. The shoppers have an opportunity to purchase an item(s) from the list and deposit it in a shopping cart when they exit the store. Sign-up sheets are in the Narthex for workers, or call Jose Marquez at 574-806-7064 to sign up. Thank You!
 
LITTLE LIGHTS PRESCHOOL

"God has been good to me". What a great Thanksgiving verse from Genesis! Why do you celebrate Thanksgiving - to give thanks to God for all he has done for you? Do you have a home, a family, food to eat, a job, freedom to attend church, and a great country in which to live? God has given all of these things to you!
Pilgrims were thankful for God's goodness to them. From stories about these people our preschoolers will see that Thanksgiving is a great time to thank God for all the goodness and love that He has shown them.
We will celebrate this special time by learning about the first Thanksgiving and creating colorful turkeys. We will finish working on colors. We will start activities on the shapes: circle, square, and triangle.
I thank God for all of my Little Lights and their parents! God surely has been good to me!
