Last Sunday of the Diaper Drive! We are collecting diapers and wipes for the Greater Triad Diaper Bank and we really need more! These can be dropped of in the red wagons on Sunday mornings (Life Center, Tower Room, Welcome Center). All sizes will be accepted, but the Diaper bank has the highest need for sizes 4 & 5, pull-ups, and wipes. The drive will run through October 17. In the afternoon, we will head to the diaper Bank in Winston Salem from 2-4pm to help count and sort diaper so they are ready for families who need them. We still have plenty of open slots & we need your help!!! Please consider SIGNING UP HERE to join us! **I have room to drive some kiddos in my car if parents are unable to go. Just let me know!! 

This Sunday is Children’s Sabbath! There will be a special Sunday School presentation for preschool & elementary parents in M125. FPC member, Dr. Maddy Lowman, will discuss what stress and anxiety looks like in young children & how parents can help! There will also be a special display in the Welcome Center to celebrate the 75th anniversary of our Weekday Preschool!

Finally, get your costumes ready!!! On Sunday October 31st, children are invited to wear their costumes to church! We will gather at the back of the Life Center at 10am (children should be accompanied by an adult). Then, we will go trick or treating around the church before heading out to the playground for some doughnuts & apple cider! Extra prizes given if the costumes include plaid (for Reformation Sunday) or reference to a bible story!  I’ve got my costume ready & I can’t wait to see yours!😁🎃 (Milestones will NOT meet on this Sunday.)
