Tribute to Jim Blood Drive. The Carter BloodCare bus will be at Abiding Grace this Sunday, October 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., for our annual blood drive. We honor the memory of member Jim Fawks by donating the life-giving gift of blood to those who depend on it. You can sign up online. For questions, please contact Lori Anderson of the Outreach Committee.
First Bible classes for youth. There will be classes for youth (third grade and above) on two Sundays, October 13 and 20, to prepare for getting their first bible on Reformation Sunday, October 27. We will learn how to use the bible, the stories, and what scriptures we need to look at for guidance in tough situations. The classes are 12:15 – 2:15 p.m., and lunch will be provided. Both dates are required, and children must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact Gary if you are interested in attending.
Adult Sunday School meets at 10:00 a.m. at the east end of our campus in the Fellowship Room. We use The Wired Word, a bible study based on a current news story. Come join in!
Cooking oil for GRACE. It's time for the "October Rush" before the holidays. Each year the GRACE Food Pantry prepares over 500 food packs for Thanksgiving and Christmas in addition to regular support for clients. Cooking oil is included in these food packs. Our goal for the month of October is 200 48 oz. bottles of cooking oil (any variety). Please help us support those in need during the holidays.
Fall family event! Come to Abiding Grace on Friday, October 25, 6:30–8:00 p.m., for a Halloween party. We will have trunk or treat, game booths, and a haunted house. There will be prizes for the top three costumes and best decorated trunk-or-treat car or truck. If you plan to attend or wish to enter your vehicle in the trunk or treat competition, please let Gary know. Plan to join us for fun and fellowship!
NTNL Junior High Youth Gathering. A synod-wide event for all middle school youth will be held on Friday to Sunday, November 15-17, at Grace Lutheran Church in Carrollton. The theme for the gathering is “Where two or three gather in my name, I am with them," Matthew 18:20. All 6th–8th graders are encouraged to attend. Please contact Gary for questions and to register.
Care and Connection for college students! Do you have a son or daughter who is a college student? The College Care Committee wishes to keep them connected by including them in our prayers and sending notes, a package, and gift card. Please contact Karen Williams with the address and contact information for your college student. We look forward to supporting our college students and letting them know that Abiding Grace cares about them!
