As the leaves continue to change in hue and the temperatures drop, we want to offer many thanks for the support shown for the Rock River Pumpkin Festival a couple of weeks ago. The population of Edgerton doubled for the five to six hours that included fun, good food, and growing relationships. Edgerton is here because of the great people who live, work, and play here and the people are here because of the great things happening in Edgerton including families, churches, schools, and community.
Ministry in Music: We are grateful to Echoes of Love for sharing their musical gifts with us this morning.
Next Sunday evening, October 26, we will join the Edgerton churches for a Reformation Day worship celebration at First CRC in Edgerton.
World Hunger campaign: There are 500 million family farms in the world, the majority of which are in the developing world. Many are unable to adequately support their families. World Renew invites you to join thousands of others in this year’s World Hunger Campaign called “Farm to Table.” Devotional booklets have been placed in your mailboxes. Through daily stories and activity suggestions that you can read around your own supper tables you will learn from global farmers and discover new ways to share your blessings with those in need. The deacons will not be distributing Peter Fish banks but we do encourage you to complete the activities, save up your funds, and be prepared to bring your gifts on World Hunger Sunday, November 2.

This simple hands-on mission project gives our entire church family, especially children, a tangible way to demonstrate the true meaning of Christmas—God’s gift of His son, Jesus Christ. We have set a goal of doing 75 boxes from our church. Boxes are available today. Feel free to pick up more than one box for your family to fill. Return the filled boxes back to church at anytime, deadline is NOV 16 and we will deliver them for you. If shopping is too difficult for you, and you would still like to participate, you may put money in an envelope, put it in my mailbox, and I will do a box or two for you.
