Adopt a Dorm Daughter or Dorm Dude Today!  63 OAA dorm students need our prayers and Christian love.  This ministry involves sending the students notes, cards, and small gifts (mostly food) from now until Thanksgiving.  You may choose to let them know who you are, or keep your identity secret until Thanksgiving.  Contact Bonnie Pendergrass to adopt your student.

Prison Ministry needs your used copies of the Signs of the Time magazine.  We have a neat and secure way of blocking out your name and address so please do not cut it out nor use a felt tip pen to do that.  You may leave the magazines at the church office or on a chair on Ella Fisher's front porch. Thank you very much.


Baby Sprinkle You are invited to a Baby Sprinkle, (as opposed to a shower) in celebrating the arrival of Delta Gammanthaler. (She was born July 3rd.) Due to Covid restrictions and to make it easier on the family, we are asking you bring either diapers (Size 2 or larger) or a gift for a baby girl, Size 3-6 months or larger. Or a gift card to church on September 26th and leave it in the Cradle Roll/Tiny Tot Room.  We want to welcome our newest baby, daughter of Doug and Macey and big brother Redmond with love.
