NO SUNDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY GROUP THIS WEEK

The previous entry code and building key no longer work as of Oct. 26. As with any change, the new system will require some adjustment. We appreciate your patience as we work through the finer details. If you need access to the building, please contact Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org or on her cell at 330-466-1981.

OCTOBER PRAYER FOCUS
Pray that we will find opportunity to do good to all people and especially to one another. Galatians 6:9-10 (NIV): Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
