OVERTURNED KINGDOMS CONTINUES SUNDAY!
Who is Jesus Christ according to the Gospel of Luke? Preferring the company of tax collectors and sinners, he passed by the respectable and the righteous. He talked to women, welcomed children and touched those considered unclean. He told stories where Samaritans and outcasts were the heroes. In the kingdom he foretold, the first would be last and the last first, and the greatest would be the servant of all. Nowhere is it more evident than in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus overturned more than money-changing tables – he overturned kingdoms.

NEXT LADIES’ BOOK UP FOR DISCUSSION
When: Tuesday, November 12 at 7pm
Where: Michele Leonard’s home (check directory or office for address)
What: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah
Since this is a newer book, the used copies on Amazon aren't any cheaper than the new copies so there will not be copies to buy at church. The library system has 23 copies but you need to put this very popular book on hold as they move fast. Also consider the Audio version. Trevor narrates and it’s very enjoyable to listen to. Here is a short summary of what the book is about from the publisher:
 
Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of  The Daily Show  began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle.
THE RULE OF LAW IN THE ARMED FORCES
When: Thursday, November 21 @ 12 noon
Where: The Well
Jim Backstrom, longtime Wayne Church member will be here to talk about the Rule of Law in the Armed Forces, Military Justice and the Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps at our November’s luncheon in recognition of Veteran’s Day Suggested donation of $10.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. Last year Samaritan’s Purse, distributed 11 million shoeboxes worldwide! Look for the display in the office lobby.  They will be collected on Sunday, November 10. Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child!

STUDIES AND CLASSES
BOOK OF JAMES STUDY
When: Starting Sunday, November 10 @ 9:15am
Where: The Upper Room (#A204, Floor 2)
This is a video-based study, written and shared by the incredible Francis Chan. Come to one, come to all.   You won’t be disappointed, and you will always be welcome! True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The Book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.
 
Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Through 12 sessions, Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.

3RD QUARTER FINANCE UPDATE
For the first nine months of 2019, revenue was $599,175.    Revenue is slightly ahead of budget and above the prior year as higher offering offset a decline in building rental income.   Total expenses were $570,184, which is also slightly above budget and the prior year expenses.    While we are on pace to achieve a balanced operating budget in 2019, church reserves remain $164,000 below historical levels due to building investments and operating deficits in prior years.
