Trunk or Treat/Chili Cookoff
Hello everyone!  
There's a lot going on!
  • The meeting Wednesday was great and we are looking forward to our future conversations about name, location, ministry opportunities, and much more! 
  • Grow to be You had our ribbon cutting ceremony and have become more known in our community. 
  • In fact, this morning on the City of Hoschton Facebook page, two of the three pictures were Arbor Pointe - the ribbon cutting and Trunk-or-Treat. 
  • Trunk or Treat, by the way, was great with 14 chili cook-off entrants and 12 or so trunks with lots of kids (and adults) getting their share of candy and chili (yeah, I know, a weird combination but so good!). 
  • Harold Green is our winner and will be entered into the Hoschton Chili Cook-Off this coming weekend. 
  • Also, I will be getting the buckets and kits delivered this week. 
  • Our Sunday Morning Hospitality Tent goes up this Sunday, November 5th and will include snacks and drinks before church each week.  It's a great opportunity for fellowship and getting to know each other a little better. 
  • Sharon Yancey with Matthew Initiative is coming out this Wednesday to further our conversation about growing our children's ministry. 
  • We will be cutting firewood this Saturday in Royston.  There is still wood stored here if anyone is interested in delivering and or splitting - contact jlandis1@mindspring.com. 
  • Christmas Extravaganza is on the way and Mike Roberts is looking for some talented folks to help out with skit, performance, etc.  The Yargo Community Concert Band, APC Band, and Children's Ministry will all be participating and we know we have a few actors out there so this is a chance to perform for Jesus in His birthday season!  
God is up to good things here and it is great to be a part of that!!

I have to finish though, by saying once again that your love and appreciation completely blew both Kit and I away.  We have never experienced anything like it.  The dinner at Cafe' Basquet was incredible - and would have been enough, really.  However, Sunday morning was amazing.  Every time I try to put words around it, I come up short...kind of like now.  Let me just say that God is using y'all in our life to show that He means what He says when He talks about how much He loves.  It's an important lesson for me to learn and remember - I sometimes forget how deep and wide the Father's love is - y'all presented a living example of that love and I/we are appreciative beyond measure.  Thank you.  Each of you.  For letting God use you to remind us of that love.

Gratefully,
Mike (and Kit)
