Military Christmas Care Boxes
The Women’s Fellowship will be sending Military Christmas Care Boxes to our service members from the 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) who are deployed at three locations in Africa (Garoua, Cameroon; Djibouti; and Bizerte, Tunisia). Our goal is to send 30 boxes to each location for a total of 90 boxes to make Christmas special for these soldiers who are deployed during the holidays. As their Commander stated, “For many of them, this is their first deployment and Christmas away from home.”
The flat rate shipping cost for each box is $18.45. For those making donations with a check, please make your checks out to “Women’s Fellowship” and on the memo line, please write “Military Boxes”.
A list of suggested items is below. Large boxes will be placed in Fellowship Hall for purchased and donated items. Plans to assemble the donated items and begin packing and wrapping gifts will be at the Women’s Fellowship meeting on Wednesday, November 13th at 9:30 in Fellowship Hall. All are welcome!
Thank you for your support and generosity!

GREETING CARD MINISTRY
We now have a PATRIOTIC section to our Card Ministry in the Fellowship Hall. Let's all participate in writing notes of encouragement and thanks to our military - Active, Reserve and Veterans. Your cards will be collected and sent to those serving our country (past and present) and will generate TREMENDOUS BLESSINGS for all!

Seeking Photos of Church Members in Uniform!
Janiece Pino requests photographs of any current or past servicemen and women of the church to be placed in an Honor Album for the church. Please go through your treasured photos and select ONE; noting the person's NAME, YEAR taken and Branch of Service. These can be given to Janiece who will display the album at our "Cards to Military" table. If you prefer to provide a copy of your photo, notify Frank Wade after church service, and he can scan and print the photo for the album.
No Thanksgiving dinner plans yet?
Join us for the best Thanksgiving dinner potluck in Fairfield Glade. Yes, on Thursday, November 28th at noon the annual Fairfield Glade Community Church’s Thanksgiving dinner will take place.
Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls and drinks will be provided by the church. Bring your favorite Thanksgiving side dish, your own place settings and a hearty appetite. For a mere cost of $3.00 per person you’ll have more turkey, dressing, desserts and all the “fixins” you can eat and you won’t have to cook or clean up. These are everyone’s traditional holiday dishes folks. We are talking some really good food. It will definitely be an event not to be missed. So, bring your family or invite your neighbors and friends. But, make sure you sign-up early so we’ll know how many turkeys to roast.
Sign-ups will begin on Sunday October 20th in the Fellowship Hall and continue through the 24th of November. Just look for the poster board with Turkeys on it.
If you are interested in roasting a turkey, assisting with set-up, serving or clean-up please indicate on the sign-up sheet. Turkey bakers will be reimbursed for the cost of the turkey if you wish.
E-Prayer Position Available
Have you been thinking that you would like to be in charge of sending out our EPrayers? Or maybe you know someone who has expressed interest in doing so? Since my time on the Christian Response Committee is nearing an end, I am looking for someone who will be able to take over this position. Please contact me if you are interested! I will be happy to work with you and share the process with you.
If you haven't yet signed up for EPrayer, I would be happy to add you to the list of people receiving emails when prayers are needed. Please send an email to EPrayerChurch@gmail.com.
May peace be with you today and every day.
