TRUNK OR TREAT DRIVE THRU!
We will be having a "Drive-Thru Truck or Treat" on Halloween October 31, from 5-7 PM. The trunks will be set up on the Southside parking lot. There will be prizes for the first, second, and third place trunks. Visitors will enter from Highway 59 and exit onto Highway 71. Please let Ray know if you will be setting up a trunk. We will provide space for social distancing and deliver treats to each car as they
pass through. We would love to have tons of participation! Bring lots of candy! Come join the fun.
LIVE! SONSHINE STUDIES!
Starting this Sunday, November 1, we will have LIVE SonShine Studies on the front pew before worship. We will begin promptly at 9:30 AM with singing, Bible reading, and an object lesson. This “pew packers” style class will get our kids acclimated to getting back to Sunday morning Bible classes which will begin by the end of the year. Please bring your children and spread the word.
We are planning a girls night out and guys night out for November or December. Suggestions for the date and location are TBA. See Misty or Ray!

DISASTER ASSISTANCE COC
"Thanks" seems inadequate to say to Mr. Mike Baumgartner and the Disaster Assistance Church of Christ. He has been serving 100's of meals daily to our community with no end in sight! Here is what Mike posted on 9/25/20: "Disaster Assistance Mission-Here is an update from Don Hudson our director of outreach. 'I think most people, who read my post know of my love and appreciation of the Howell Church of Christ, but please permit me to tell you of another really working Church. The Summerdale Church of Christ is such an example of the N.T. pattern of worship and service. They have sustained at least a half million dollars in damage and yet every day from early morning to nearly dark some of their members are here helping people with food and supplies in this difficult time when so many are suffering. What a privilege for us of Disaster Assistance Churches of Christ to be able to work with them. Is it any wonder that this church is so well appreciated in the community and is growing. Thank you Howell Church of Christ for sending Rosemary and me as your home missionaries. Love to all. God is so Good.'"
