RED PRAYER GATHERING - This afternoon, at 4 pm, we will gather to pray specifically for RED student ministry. Please join us as we bring before the Father the needs of our students and adult sponsors, and as we stand in the gap for them against spiritual battle. We will meet at Westwood, in the Student Lounge.

FALL OUTREACH - October 31st - If you are available, please make plans to join us in the Reflections neighborhood in Ocoee for the Fall Outreach event this coming Wednesday, October 31st. We could use some help manning the game booths or concession stand, and greeting. Parents, you are welcome to bring your children to participate in this family-friendly, safe trick-or-treating event. The parade starts at 5:30 pm. Set-up will be going on most of the afternoon. Please let us know if you are available to help with that, and if you can stay after to help with clean-up. There will be no children's or youth programs at Westwood Wednesday evening.

TIME CHANGE - It’s that time again. This coming weekend, we will “fall back” one hour. So, remember to change all your clocks on Saturday evening. If you time it just right, you can get an extra hour of sleep, and come to service really rested and refreshed.

CONTACT & PRAY FOR MICHELLE - Michelle Sejour has started basic training for her service in the United States Navy. Please continue praying for her as she works her way through this first, sometimes grueling part of her Navy career. Michelle will certainly appreciate hearing from you as well. Her address is: SR Sejour, Michelle L., Ship II Div 032, 3505 Sailor Drive, Great Lakes, IL 60088-3505

THANKSGIVING BASKETS - Again this year, we hope to provide 40 Thanksgiving Baskets to families at Prairie Lake Elementary who could use a little help and encouragement. You will have the option of donating financially to purchase and entire family meal (or 1/2 meal), or individual items. More details next week.

SOAPING WEEKLY - In order to prepare your spirit for the message each week, S.O.A.P. through a passage (read the Scripture, make your Observation, find a specific Application, and write a Prayer) in advance of Sunday service.
