Clothing Exchange starts on Thursday, October 13!! Gather up those clothes you don’t need and bring them on Thursday or Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Plan on shopping while you distribute your clothes to the tables. Because of the expected amount of donations, the church will need to borrow extra folding tables. If you have folding tables that the church can borrow, please label them with your last name and drop them off at the church on Thursday 10/13 or Friday 10/14. These tables will need to be picked up immediately after the clothing exchange ends at noon on Saturday. In addition, volunteers are needed on Saturday, October 15, as we serve the community. More details below and on The City.

Annual Clothing Exchange & Toy Giveaway
The clothing exchange is a time to get rid of those clothes that no one in your house is wearing and to share the clothes with others. It’s here on October 13 & 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The giveaway is on October 15 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon for the community to share in our abundance. Details for participating are on The City, the website, and the bulletin flyer Information cards are available on the foyer table to hand out at Purcellville’s Town Tag Sale on October 8.

World Missions Potluck – October 16
On October 16, Dr. Luke and Nancy Cutherell, our missionaries in Pakistan, will be with us for both services. The World Missions Committee invites everyone to attend a potluck after the second service to hear more from them. Our time with them is always very encouraging!! Bring a main dish for 10 AND a salad/vegetable or dessert to share.

On October 2, Pastor Jack asked us what our faith has cost us. He encouraged us that, because we triumph in victory through Jesus, any cost our faith incurs is worth enduring! Listen to “Faith in… the Unseen” from Hebrews 11:1-7.
