OCC SHOEBOX COLLECTION WEEK

We hope you will be participating in Operation Christmas Child this year! What a wonderful way to reach out with a gift-filled shoe box and touch the life of a needy child, and often their family, somewhere in the world! While supply lasts, empty shoe boxes are available on a table in the Fellowship Hall. Collection week is November 13th through the 20th. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! There is a sign-up sheet at the church office window for those who can volunteer for two or three-hour shifts to help in the collecting and packing of shoe boxes during that week. Please return your gift-filled shoe boxes by Sunday, November 19th, so they can be dedicated during the 10:55 am worship service. You can also leave your gift-filled shoe boxes on the table nearest the stage in the Fellowship Hall. We are blessed to be a blessing to others!

On the Radio This Week

Tune in Monday morning, November 27th, from 10:00 – 11:00 on WHKP 1450 AM/107.7 FM for Beyond Words Radio. Guest: John Walton; Topic: “Does God Promote Evil?” Of all the problems the Old Testament poses for our modern age, the question of the holy warfare is the one we want to avoid in mixed company. But do the so-called holy war texts of the Old Testament actually portray a divinely inspired genocide? Did Israel really slaughter Canaanites at God's command? Were the Old Testament believers really enforcing divine retribution on an unholy people? Old Testament scholar John Walton believes we have long misunderstood these holy wars, and he seeks to shed new light based on the Hebrew text and context.

Missionary Prayer Request

Can you imagine juggling local European churches, displaced refugees, immigrants, strongly held political views, human suffering, and waning resources? That is what Paul Sydnor is faced with every day as he ministers to the refugees in Europe. Paul works with churches across Europe to help them set up plans and programs to help the refugees. Paul just shared the news that he will have another family on board to help with his tasks. Some pressing issues are homeless minor children, paperwork to extend the refugees’ stay, and helping families as they again relocate. Please pray for this extreme need.
