Change your clocks! shower, workday, Smart Money + Immanence

Turn back your clocks this Saturday night! Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, so here’s your reminder to set your clocks back an hour before bed Saturday night so you don’t arrive an hour early for church. 🙂

Baby shower this Saturday. Ladies, come for a great time together and celebrate Mandy Furhrman, 10:00am at Nancy Wilcox’s. Details here.

Remember the workday! Can you carve out an hour or so (or more!) from your schedule next Saturday/Nov 11? Please help out by refreshing and working on our building!

A pizza lunch is served for those here around noon, so an RSVP on the City is helpful. But show up regardless of an RSVP!

Smash & Bash
Pastor Jack wrapped up a multi-part look at Psalm 18, continuing to show through 18:37-50 how a transcendent God becomes immanent (think Immanuel: God with us) in our lives. God still shows His immanence by building His kingdom through the unity and love of a diverse people. Listen to “Smash & Bash.
