Don't forget about the Relay for Life Gerber Chicken Dinner this Saturday, Nov. 9, 4:30-6:30.  Forgot to buy a ticket?  Don't worry, walk-ins are welcome!  Adult tickets are $10, children 10 and under are $5, and those under 2 are free.  And there will be pie.  LOTS of pie!  Your favorite pie is sure to be represented, so come support a good cause and enjoy and delicious meal.

We need your paper and cardboard!  America Recycles Day is next week and we will receive and extra $5/ton for your paper when you use the River Valley dumpster, located next to the garage in the parking lot.  So please, bring your paper and cardboard with you on Sunday and place it in the dumpster.  We would like to have the dumpster full for pick-up next week.  Please remember to break down your cardboard boxes.

Let's get around to Sunday happenings, shall we?  This Sunday is Stewardship Sunday.  Hopefully you have received a mission plan brochure with a DVD (some were mailed yesterday, so check your mailboxes for them) and have had a chance to watch the DVD.  Surprising Gifts are always popping up here at Christ Church, and I am fortunate enough to witness first-hand a lot of them.  A coffee hour will be held following worship.  The second Rake & Run outing will also take place following worship.  If you are able to help, bring your lunch, rake, and change of clothes with you to church, and we will leave as soon as everyone is ready.  Many hands make light work!  Confirmation will meet at 5:00 p.m.

The monthly meeting of Consistory will be held on Monday, 7:00 p.m.

Youth Ministries Council will meet on Tuesday, 6:00 p.m.

The Sarah Circle will hold their meeting at TJ's in Wooster on Wednesday, noon.  Meet in the church parking lot at 11:30 if you would like to carpool.  The choirs rehearse at their usual times on Wednesday.  Kid's Club is at 5:15.

The newsletter deadline for both the December 2013 and January 2014 editions of "The Visitor" is next Friday, Nov. 15.  I am running a combined newsletter for those two months due to the way Christmas and New Year's fall this year.

Whew! I had a lot to chat about today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
