Operation Christmas Child: Shoeboxes will continue to be available for pick up. Please consider taking one (or more!) home to prepare a Christmas gift for those who have less, and to spread God’s love this holiday season. The deadline for shoebox collection will be Nov 16. Please bring your completed shoebox back to church any time until that date.

Daylight Savings Time Ends: Please remember to set your clocks back one hour for next Sun, Nov 2.

Autumn Fun! Just kidding, we need helpers to rake leaves at Oxford on Sun, Nov 9 from 2:30-5:00p. Though we will be here until 5, part of the Chinese congregation will be unable to help out past 4 as they have home group, so come help out so we can all get it done sooner. This event will be BYOR—bring your own rake. Please consider pitching in to help out; we can’t leaf all the physical labour to our elders!

Church Ministry Retreat: There will be a retreat open to all those in positions of leadership and ministry taking place Fri, Nov 14, 8-10p, and continuing on Sat, Nov 15, 8:30a-4:00p. More details to follow.
