October 2015 Adventure Crew News

here is the church

Have you been outside lately in the morning to enjoy those beautiful sunrises and breathe in that cooler morning air?  It is nice to be out and experience the beauty of God's creation.    Just a reminder that God is good, all the time in all places. 

This month continues our journey to providing a firm faith foundation for children & families.  We are beginning a 7 week Bible Explorer class for 3rd-5th graders and a Family Read-Along through the Narnia series for the school year plus we are offering a Faith Foundations class for adults and high schoolers who are new to the church, never been through confirmation, or are looking for a faith renewal.  We are continuing to offer G.A.ME time at 10am on Sunday mornings which is a great way for your children to get to know and experience Scripture in multiple ways.  We have opportunities for families of ALL ages to be in and serving the community through Be the Church on October 11, riding on our float for the Kyle Founder's Parade on Oct. 17, and walking the Buddy Walk with the Up with Jackson team on October 18. 

Specifically for Be the Church, in addition to our work teams, we are collecting non-perishable food items that will either be used in bags to bless the homeless or gifted to the Food Pantry.  For Manna Bags, we are collecting: instant oatmeal packets, ready to eat meat pouches (tuna or chicken), ramen noodles, applesauce or fruit cups/ pouches, raisins, single serve tea bags or instant coffee, granola bars, sandwich cracker packets, ready to eat shelf stable soup or meals, gallon zip top bags, hand warmers, and wet wipe packets.  For Hygiene bags, we are collecting: travel size toiletries (shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothbrush, & toothpaste), disposable razors, feminine hygiene items, adult tube socks, and quart size zip top bags.  For the the Food Pantry, we are collecting: canned veggies (not carrots), mac n cheese, cereal, peanut butter, Ramen, dried beans, pasta (not macaroni).
