From The Deacons: North Street has again been given a generous donation of over-the-counter medicine – including children’s items, dental items, pain relievers, and more. Items will be available at the kitchen serving window following the worship services. Adults may come and help yourself to a few items. If you have any questions, please contact a Deacon.
Cold & Flu Season: As we approach the cold and flu season, please be mindful of others. If you do not feel good, please stay home.
The Thanksgiving Day offering envelopes have been placed in your mailbox. There are additional envelopes at the Sign-Up Station. These envelopes can be placed in the offering basket on Sunday-November 15, Sunday-November 22 or Thanksgiving Day. There are several groups/agencies to choose from. All loose and undesignated money received will go to the Outreach Fund. The deacons discourage you from writing in additional causes. If a group/agency is written in, that amount will be given to the Outreach Fund. Any envelopes received after Thanksgiving Day will go to the Outreach Fund.

The Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program is currently in full swing! As of Wednesday, Nov. 4, all the boxes have been claimed and 47 boxes turned in. Shoeboxes must be turned in to the office or left on the table in the Narthex by Sunday, November 15. Please turn them in as early as possible, so we can make sure we reach our goal of 100 boxes! There is still time to donate, if you would like to make a monetary donation to fill a box or help with shipping costs; place donations in Jim Jr./Dana Staat’s church mailbox. Note: please unwrap and discard any packaging on your shoebox items to make more room in your shoebox! For gift suggestions and/or more information see Dana Staat (email@example.com) or visit www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
Piano/Music Students: Instead of our typical Christmas program prelude presentation, the Worship Committee would like to put together a video recording of students playing their Christmas songs. The recording would then be used for a prelude. This process will allow for proper distancing and sanitizing. Please email Sue Arendsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (616.886.9918) if you are interested and for further details by November 16.
