Give Thanks:

  • One of our home groups has been pretty successful in attracting people from outside the church.
  • We’ve had a couple young families visit/join us lately.
  • Kids and adults are both having a great time with the new Sunday School program.
  • One family of members that hadn’t attended in several months has returned to worship.
  • Jeri was encouraged at the church planters’ wives’ retreat.
  • The final panel of officer nominees (2 Elders, 1 Deacon) is looking great! Evergreen’s session interviews them on November 15th.
  • A friend outside the church pledged $10k of support for 2013!

Trust God:

  • We need to grow in our attendance! We all need to invite our friends more~!
  • Two marriages among our members are doing terribly, probably moving toward divorce apart from the miraculous.
  • We’re almost at the point where we are meeting our budget for the internal giving, but we might have to delay particularization slightly in order to fully achieve financial sustainability.

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray that this Advent season would be worshipful and attractive to unbelievers in our relational networks.
  • Please pray that the last month of Jeri’s pregnancy and delivery, would be healthy and easy! (Due Dec 16th)
  • Please pray that the officer nominees would pass their exams (Nov. 15) .
  • Please pray that the congregation would be unified in the election of officers (Dec.).
  • Please pray for growth in attendance and giving, so we can particularize in early 2013!
