 It’s Strange …

* It’s strange how twenty dollars seems like such a large amount when you donate it to the Church, but such a small amount when you are shopping.
* It’s strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a good movie.
* It’s strange that you can’t find words to say when you’re praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend.
* It’s strange how difficult it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read a popular novel.
* It’s strange how everyone wants a front-row-ticket to concerts, but they want to sit in the last row at Church.
* It’s strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events at the last minute.
* It’s strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God and share it with others, but it’s easy to report gossip.
*It’s strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible?

Women of the Church met Tuesday, October 8 at 10 am. Doug did our program on Operation Christmas Child. He gave a brief history of the boxes. We learned what to put in the boxes, how they are prepared, especially the pick-up and distribution of them.
 
Our new study books arrived and are in the Ladies Parlor. It is a fresh look at the Ten Commandments titled “Love Carved in Stone.” The author was at Unity Presbyterian Church ladies meeting which Lisa Kluttz, Jan Hollis and Grace Lowe attended. Eugenia Anne Gamble gave a dynamic sermon for the meeting which was well received. Each lesson has a scripture, purpose, opening and closing prayer. The Word for Today from lesson two: “We realize that not everything we can do is something that we should do, nor is everything we want actually God’s will.”  
 
Bonnie & Grace took supplies to the Battered Women’s shelter last week. They greatly appreciated the cleaning supplies, spray bottles and huge box of paper towels. They are in need of diapers size 5 & 6, wipes, bathroom cleaner and kitchen supplies.
 
The second Sunday in November we will have our Thank Offering Meal. The Ladies will provide hot soups, sandwiches and desserts after Church. The money donated for this meal will grant programs to many recipients that provides food, children’s beds, blood transfusions in O B units, etc. both National and Internationally. Since 1922 the Women’s Birthday Offering has helped fund mission projects that improve lives. We hope everyone enjoys the meal.
 
The cornucopia will be placed on the altar table before Thanksgiving. Cans of food are needed for the Women’s Shelter and Rowan Helping Ministries as we share Thanksgiving with others.
 
The Church will be decorated for Christmas soon. We will also have our poinsettia tree so you can honor or remember a loved one for Christmas with a flower.
 
God Bless You,     Bonnie & Grace
