IT’S A PIE FUND-RAISER!  Support Holy Cross Christian Preschool by ordering pies for the holiday season.  We will be selling pies from Oronoque Farms in Shelton.  Pies will be delivered, freshly baked, on November 16, and can be frozen.  There are seven delicious varieties available.  Order forms are on the card table in the narthex.  Please return your form with payment no later than Wednesday, November 9.  Orders/payment should be put into the preschool mailbox (located outside the church office, 2nd row from bottom, 2nd box on left).

WRITE A LETTER!  During the month of October, we will be supporting Operation Gratitude by including letters or drawings to be mailed with care packages to our military.  Do not put them in envelopes and no larger than 8½ by 11.  All letters are screened before sent.  All instructions can be found in the October newsletter, flyers in the narthex and poster in the event case.  A collection box is in narthex.  Questions—contact Cindy Ciccia.

SUNDAY SCHOOL IS HOSTING THE ANNUAL OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD collection.  Materials for putting together a shoebox are in the narthex—help yourself.  The filled shoeboxes are due back at church no later than Nov. 13.  On that day Pastor will bless the boxes before they are sent to impoverished children supported through this Samaritan’s Purse program.

CHRISTIAN DISCUSSION GROUP: Join us Wednesday, October 26, at 10:15 a.m. in the Conference Room.  We’ll be watching and discussing a 12-part DVD series called “Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis.”  In November we will meet on two Wednesdays—the 2nd and 30th.  Hope to see you there!

 OUR NEXT DAY TO COOK AND SERVE THE COMMUNITY SUPPER is a week from Tuesday—on November 1.  See the sign-up sheet on the narthex table and indicate your availability to help with the specific tasks.  This particular Community Supper will benefit from a Thrivent Action team.  The first 15 people to come to help on that day will get a bright blue “Live Generously” T-shirt!
