November 4 – Ephesians 2:8


Today, I am thankful for Christian friends. I know some wonderful people who set an example, encourage me, minister to me, and teach me. I’m glad God provides them to help me as I serve Him.


You can pick up some gift bags in the church vestibule so you can get them packed and returned for them to be delivered in a timely way. What a sweet opportunity we have. I’m sure you will be blessed by selecting items and getting the bags ready for a local child. Don’t miss out.


November 14-21 is when the drop-off locations are open so churches can bring their shoeboxes. Be careful to check the daily time, because it varies. FBC,K loves being able to help in the collection process. We are blessed to see all the shoeboxes and to realize how many children receive a shoebox from our general area.

Thank-you for reading and praying each day. Also, thank you for being an encourager to me.
