Sunday will be a busy day!  We begin with our usual schedule – Sunday School and Worship at 9:30 and worship at 11:00.  New members will be received at both services.  Pastor will be speaking from 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

& &

At 1:30 Sunday some of our church family members will be heading out on the annual CROP Walk.  They’ll leave from the gazebo at Heritage Park, circle up and over to Pitney Road then back to New Jersey Ave. and the park.  Be sure to sponsor a walker!

& &

Family & Friends will have their 2nd event of the season at 3:00 Sunday.  Everyone is invited to come out to make a full-size scarecrow and decorate pumpkins.  Bring clothes for your scarecrow and your own pumpkins.  Additional supplies will be provided.

& &

In response to the growing interest in our neighboring faiths, we have arranged a tour of the Vaiaunth Hindu Jain Temple on Pomona Road on Tuesday, October 28 at 10:00 a.m.  Meet at the church at 9:45 or at the Hindu Temple at 10:00.  This is open to all members who are interested, not just those who attended the religion course.

& &

American Boychoir dinner tickets will be available November 1.  Anyone housing the boys Saturday night, Dec. 13, may contact Joanie NOW for 1st choice of reserved seats.  Several Host Homes are still needed.  Call Joanie.

A limited number of Percy Crawford commemorative books and set of 2 CD’s (compliments of the NYC’s Radio City organists) are now available.  Call Joanie!

It's An Adventure! - ODB RADIO:  |  Download
Read Acts 16:1-15

My wife and I love to travel roads we've never been on before. Last fall we drove down a county road in northern Wisconsin. The autumn colors were near their peak, and every turn brought us a thrilling new sight. Maples of red and orange, green pines, and yellow softwoods painted the ever-changing landscape. Not knowing what to expect next made the journey memorable.

One of the many exciting aspects of walking with Christ is that we don't know what's going to happen next. At times we may be uncomfortable with the twists and turns, but God reserves the right to lead us wherever He wants.

Paul and his missionary companions were making their way through Asia Minor when God changed their plans (Acts 16:6-7). Instead of going to Bithynia, they went to Troas. That night Paul saw a vision of a man pleading, "Come over to Macedonia and help us" (v.9). Paul's plans were changed when God revealed His.

As we prayerfully consider what God wants us to do, we can be confident that He will lead us day by day through His Word and by His Spirit within us (Psalm 139:10).  Because He is good (25:8), we can trust Him with our lives in this great adventure called the Christian life.
