            A special thanks to everyone who helped at our church workbee Sunday a week ago.  Many hands made light work and much was accomplished to beautify our church building and yard.
            Elders and Church Board: An elders’ meeting will be held tonight, Tuesday, October 17 at 6:00 P.M. followed by the church board meeting at 7:00 P.M.
            Join us on Wednesday, October 18 at 7:00 P.M. in the church sanctuary for Intercessory Prayer & Training in preparation for the Shadow Empire series starting the next evening, Thursday, October 19 at 7:00 P.M. Volunteers are also encouraged to arrive on Thursday evening at 6:00 P.M. or as soon as you can to be in place for our guests from the community.
            Shadow Empire starts this Thursday night, October 19, right here in our sanctuary! This 4-part experience features Shawn Boonstra from the Voice of Prophecy and our own pastors sharing the compelling story of Constantine and his continuing impact on religious liberty around the world. The four meetings are “The Rise of the Early Church” on Thursday at 7:00 P.M.; “The Persecution of the Church” on Friday, October 20, at 7:00 P.M.; and “A Marriage of Church and State” on Sabbath, October 21, at 7:00 P.M. followed directly by “Constantine’s Christianity” that same evening at 8:00 P.M. We will not be live-streaming this event on our website, so invite your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to this great outreach opportunity, and let’s experience it together. Learn more at
            Next Sabbath’s Outreach: October 21st at 2:15 P.M. the Praise Team will meet at Pisgah Villa with songs of praise.  All are welcome to come enjoy a time of music and worship of our Lord and Savior. Come, bring your instrument and join in.
            Midweek Service scheduled for Wednesday, October 25 has been cancelled. Everyone is encouraged to attend A Pale Horse Rides each evening October 26-28.
