  Community Connections

 Friday Nights Out - November 8, 15, and 22, 6-8pm, in the   church basement. Come eat dinner with other families in our   community, and learn to cook it, too! Free and kid-friendly, with   nursery care for ages 0-3. Supplies will be also provided so you can   cook the meal at home. 

 Please RSVP to the church office by the Tuesday prior to   each event .


 Help with Friday Nights Out - Please start saving used plastic 
 tubs (margarine, large yogurt tubs, etc.) so families can easily take   home their ingredients. If you'd like to help provide supplies or   ingredients, please contact Deb Burlingame; cash donations also help   us buy ingredients - just write "Friday Nights Out" on the memo line   of your check. You can also help by offering transportation for   families.

Card Crafting 

There will be a card class in   the  fellowship hall on  Nov. 3rd after  church lets out, say between 11:30 and 12:00. We will be making some Christmas cards, as well as 
a few others.
 Plan to spend about 2 hours at the class. Everything needed to make   beautiful cards will be provided. Please R.S.V.P. to Rhonda via e-mail   ( krekdavies@aol.com )  or leave a message at (360) 260-2563. The   R.S.V.P. lets me know how many sets of each project I need to   prepare for. Hope to see you there!!

 Thanksgiving Luncheon is on Sunday, Nov. 10th. The turkey   and stuffing will be provided. There will be a sign-up sheet in the   Narthex for the fixings to go with the turkey and stuffing. This is a   wonderful start to the Season of Giving Thanks and one of my favorite   events of the year.
