Again, thanks so much for the overwhelming support and prayers that we felt as my family gathered in NS around my father passing away and his funeral. We truly felt blessed to be a part of a church family at this time, and my hope is that any one of us would feel this as we need it in our lives. Love the church being the church!

- This Wednesday, Oct. 15th, we're launching a "Gateway" at Dave and Anna's house. The vision for this is for a midweek gathering, to be held every other Wednesday, from 7:30 - 9:00pm for Bible Study / Prayer and connecting on a deeper level with each other. (We're going to go through the book of Ephesians together - memorizatioin challenge included!) If you think you might like to attend this Gateway, or have interest in this type of gathering, (would like to help lead one, host one, or even create your own) - let us know
- We're having a special worship time this Thursday night, Oct. 16th at our church facility from 7:30 - 8:30pm. Our praise and worship team will be leading us into an extended time of worship. It'll be sooooo exciting to do this with you all and to see where God takes us in it. Thursday night pray-ers will be joining in. Coming? Have an interest in being a part of our praise and worship team, or Thursday night prayer team? Let us know
- Next Wednesday, Oct. 22nd, at 12 noon, a group of ladies are meeting for some fellowship, lunch and Bible Study n prayer. If you haven't signed up already, do you want to be a part of this, or are you interested in this type of mid-week gathering? Let us know

- Mara and I announced this last Sunday that we are EXPECTING our fourth baby!!! Question is: Is this a boy, a girl, or twins? If Jesus is telling you, or you have a huge hunch, let us know!

Friends, we're in the final quarter of the year, let's finish 2014 even more in love with Him and even more in love with each other than when we started it. Let's look at what God can do in our midst!
Loving church because I love you,
