Pledge Cards and Time and Talent Survey: It’s the time of year to reconsider the gifts we have to offer the church. Thank you for being a vital part of the John Calvin family. Know that, together, WE CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens us! Please return your pledge cards by the end of October. 

Christmas Cantata: Our Christmas Cantata rehearsals begin November 2nd at 7pm. The cantata will be sung at a joint service with the Chinese Presbyterian Church on December 11th; anyone who wants to sing in the cantata should plan to be at the 5 Wed. rehearsals between Nov. 2 and Dec. 11 (no rehearsal the day before Thanksgiving). Let Sam and Kelly know if you’d like to participate! 

Flowers: The flowers in the sanctuary were given by Cheryl Emery  in loving memory of her Mother and Father, who would have celebrated their 81st anniversary this year.

Wrapping paper and cookies: There is still time to shop. Register at https://www.shopfund.com/ select no student code and enter the name of the school when asked, then put CHURCH for the first and last name of Student. All orders for Church members will be sent to the office for easy pick-up. Thank you for making our fundraiser a success!

Devotional Spotlight: Do you want to grow deeper in faith with a Daily Devotional but don’t know where to start? Each week we will highlight a devotional book you might like to try. This week’s devotional is: Our Daily Bread. It is a calendar-style devotional booklet published by Our Daily Bread Ministries. The booklet is one of the most widely read Christian devotionals in circulation today. Each day gives you a short bible passage to read and highlights a main verse from that passage. This is followed by thoughts on the passage. It is written by a different author each day, and also features additional Bible passages for people following Our Daily Bread’s “Bible In One Year” reading program.So if you looking to dip your toes into the devotional waters this short pocket size booklet may be for you. Bonus, it’s available right outside the church doors. 

Birthdays: Barbara McHan 10/23. Louise Fuller 10/28
