We will be preparing bags for our annual Thanksgiving Outreach (happening Nov. 14th). This will include assembling bags and writing cards for each of the recipients. We would love your help as we prepare to bless some families this Thanksgiving! Huddle will be at Grandview at 8am.
Our prayer walk is going to the Drake Community in Auburn with the intention of lifting up prayers for the people and situations along the way. It is a kind of "moving intercession," and is a wonderful way of following Paul's instruction in 1 Thessalonians to "pray continually." Some find that physically being in a certain location helps focus their prayers more specifically and effectively.
This is a meeting/orientation to get information on hosting an international student(s) for Thanksgiving.

Come join us Saturday November 7th at 10am at the dream center to learn more about the details. Signing up for more information is not a commitment. Come and get more info!
