OCTOBER SPECIAL EVENTS
The Wednesday Night Program resumes this month
Every Wednesday for the past ten program years, an average of 60-70 people have enjoyed fun, fellowship, and growth at our Wednesday Night Program. These community evenings provide ministry for all ages and include a meal, intergenerational fellowship, and various fun and learning activities. We invite everyone to join us in this special evening each week. We’ll open the 2017-2018 Wednesday Night Program year on Oct. 4. The weekly get-togethers will continue through April 2018 with breaks over the holidays. If you plan to attend, please complete the registration form on page 10, even if you may not be able to make it each week or for the entire evening. This will help us plan for meals, leadership, and supplies. If you would like to come, but need transportation, please include that on the form.
The registration fee is $30 per household for the entire year, and helps cover costs, but it is not required for participation. Registration scholarships are available. We don’t want anyone staying home because of cost. We also invite participants to make free-will offerings each week based on the approximate cost of the meal. In past years, the suggested amount was $5 per person per night. Again, please don’t let the cost keep you home. Please do not assume that because you’ve attended in the past that you will automatically be registered To participate in the program, complete the form on page 10 and turn it in to the office as soon as possible. Early registration is encouraged! If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Wednesday Night Coordinating Team, (Tenessa G., Mary J., Barb (and/or Bob) P., Laurie T., Eleanore T., Amy W. M.,
It’s time for our Talent Auction! Sunday, October 1.
In the past we have conducted a Talent Auction that was both entertaining and profitable. Thanks to the generosity of the Adult Education Committee, this year’s auction will be held during the Sunday Morning Education Hour at 11:00 a.m. This is where you come in! I know what you’re saying, “I don’t have any talent worth auctioning.” That’s where you’re wrong. Everyone has talents and skills; you just need to be willing to share them. Some suggestions:
•Host a meal for a large or small group
•Teach computer skills
•Teach a craft
•Paint a room
•Weed a garden
•Bake holiday goodies
•Help someone sort pictures
As you can see, the possibilities are endless! If you are stumped, consult the Special Fundraising Brochure for ideas. We look forward to joining together in this event!
Pumpkin Carving returns
After taking a year off, the pumpkin decorating and carving event returns to UCCNB. Please join the Fellowship Committee on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10:00 a.m. until noon, for this event that is always fun for children and adults. The Committee will provide small pumpkins for decorating. If your child wants to carve a pumpkin, please bring a larger one.
