CIA PACK A SNACK: 
The CIA is looking for volunteers to deliver the packed snacks to the schools each week on Thursday morning (anytime between 8:45 and 11:30). The snacks are delivered in plastic totes to the schools each week and they are heavy making it a two person job.  The volunteer team needs a vehicle that can carry four or five totes and some extra grocery bags. We are hoping for teams from all four churches so a team could do a month at a time on a rotational basis. Often we need help shopping at the SW VA Second Harvest food bank, another heavy lifting job taking about 2 hours for each shopping trip.  Please contact us if you are interested in either of these two needs for the CIA. 

Women’s Tuesday Night Bible Study  The women’s Bible Study Group is studying the Gospel of Luke.  Join us any week on Tuesday evening at 7 pm in the parlor.  All women welcome!

SonDaze (music ministry for elementary age children)
​ meets each Sunday at 4:00pm.  Children gather for singing, musical games, crafts, and ice cream sundaes. Contact Sister Mary for more information.

Women’s Events – All are invited and encouraged to join in for some social time.  Your next new friend might be looking for YOU!

Thursday, November 2 (7:00 pm) – Game Night   Don’t RISK your ECLIPSE from Ladies’ Game Nite!  No need to JOURNEY THROUGH EUROPE or traverse THE MAGIC LABYRINTH to find a CANDYLAND of fun before the DEAD OF WINTER.  If you TAKE IT EASY and use your CRANIUM you will FIGURE IT OUT and GO to Joyce Noell’s home before TIME’S UP! Be sure to FOCUS on the yellow sheet in the bulletin so the planners can ACQUIRE names of whom to expect for this OPERATION and not depend on TOP SECRET SPIES or the LUCK OF THE DRAW.
