SAM (Sweetwater Area Ministries) is having their annual work day (lunch provided) on Saturday, November 1st starting at 9:00 am.  Christmas trees will be assembled, and other decorations will be brought out of Karen’s secret storage corners.  If you can help with this project, please be there on the 1st


Worship is a special time! Flowers on the altar are an expression of our love for our Lord, family and friends. Something is missing when there are no flowers on the altar to show that love. Please donate to the Altar Guild Fund for arrangements ranging in price from $35 – $50. Designate if there are per-sons being honored or remembered, date, and $ amount for your arrange-ment. No flowers are needed on Com-munion Sunday (first Sunday of month) or the month of December since poin-settias will be requested. Arrangement will be ordered for you unless you prefer to provide or order your arrangement. If you would like to make a contribution to our floral fund, any size donation will be greatly appreciated, even if you don’t have someone to honor, so we can have flowers on the altar each Sunday. Please contact Ann Thomas (423-836- 9070) or email
