    CUMO CHRISTMAS STORE
    We are collecting items for the CUMO Christmas Store through Wednesday, Dec. 8, so parents can shop at the Store on Saturday, Dec. 11. Do not wrap these gifts as parents will purchase these items at a greatly reduced cost. If there are price tags, please do not remove them. Here are some shopping suggestions. 

    GIVE AS YOU ARE ABLE
    Contributions of all amounts are important to maintaining the body and for thanking the Lord for the blessings of your life. “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you,” Romans 12:8. You can donate by dropping your cash or check in the contribution box on the communion table, mailing your check to the church, or giving online through CCB. Thank you for your generosity.

    PRAYING FOR OUR CHURCH FAMILIES
    Our prayer focus for November is around families, and our request is that you randomly remove a purple circle from the window of the elders’ office and pray for the family whose name is on the circle. Specific needs are not listed – pray as you like for the family’s general well-being and blessings.

    THANK YOU CARDS
    Please see the bulletin board in the lobby to read the most recent thank you cards sent to the congregation.

    SUNDAY MORNING

    Adult Classes – Questions Friends Have About Faith

We must point them to the Light who has come into the world.

    Children’s Classes –Children in the nursery through 5th grade will learned about God’s plan for Jacob last week and will connect it to this week’s lesson about His plan for Joseph. Children’s classes begin at 9 a.m.
