HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

WE WILL LOVE: 2015 ALLIANCE YEAR-END OFFERING Gifts to the year-end offering support the Great Commission Fund and CAMA Advance Fund, which keep our workers in tough places, equipped to extend Jesus’ love, mercy, and grace to those in physical and spiritual need. Please take home the brochure/envelop and prayerfully consider how Christ would have you and your family participate. The offering will be taken during worship service on Sunday, December 6th.

ANGEL TREE FOR THE BRIDGE An Angel Tree for Christmas gifts for children of the men from The Bridge is set up in the lobby. Please take a tag from the tree, purchase the gift ($20 max) wrap and attach the tag to the bottom of the wrapped gift and return in to the Information Desk no later than Sunday, December 6th.

THANKSGIVING CONTRIBUTIONS Thank you to all who contributed food, and/or served for the Thanksgiving dinner for The Bridge last Thursday!

THANKSGIVING HELP TODAY Immediately following service this morning we will pack 10 Thanksgiving baskets for families at Clarcona Elementary School. If you would like to stay and help, see Amanda at the Information Desk for details.

FOSTER CARE AWARENESS This is the final week to collect items in our partnership with the Orange Seminole Foster Children’s Association (OSFCA). Our Children’s Ministry is collecting items to assist Foster Children (as a part of our series on Gratefulness) during the month of November. Please join us in supplying the following needed items to central Florida foster children:

· Toothbrushes/Toothpaste (donations from local Dentists are GREAT!)

· Hairbrushes/Combs

· Socks all sizes (new please)

· Diapers and Pull Ups

There is a bin next to the Information Desk in the lobby to collect your donated items. Your help is greatly appreciated.

COLLECTING COATS & JACKETS We are still accepting donations of men's coats for Bridges of America. Please bring new or gently used coats and jackets to the Information Desk.

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE There will be no Adult, Student or Children’s programs this coming Wednesday, November 25th. The office will be closed on Thursday and Friday so our Staff can enjoy some “thankful” time with their families. If you have an emergency situation you will be able to reach a Staff member by calling the office and leaving a message on either extension 13 or 22.
