”‘I know what I am planning for you,’ says the LORD.
‘I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you.
I will give you a hope and a good future.
Then you will call my name.
You will come to me and pray to me, and I will listen to you.’”
~Jeremiah 29:11-12 NCV~

Don’t forget the “Young” Ladies Birthday Party tomorrow. There is always some sweet fellowship at out gatherings. By the way, Mrs. Nadine Council started these gathering for her Sunday School class more than ten years ago.
If you have OCC “shoeboxes” to turn in, but sure to hand them to me or leave them in the church office. The collection dates are November 12-19. That’s when the boxes from individuals, clubs, schools, and other churches are turned in. Once again, Kentwood will be a collection site.
Have a great week!
