As pastor of Laurel Hill United Methodist Church there is only one week left for donations towards our Mission Partnership with the MCV Medical Center Children’s Emergency Room.  Books, DVDs, and stuffed animals are all being received through this Sunday, October 28th.

Then, next week is full of outreach and service together.  Tuesday, October 30th a group from Laurel Hill will be Feeding the Homeless as part of the Caritas Ministry.  Wednesday, October 31st we’ll be hosting TRUNK OR TREAT for the children of our community and then Saturday, November 3rd we will have our Fall Mission Dinner & Auction.  You don’t want to miss any of these great opportunities for service.

But, as I think of these immediate opportunities I’m casting my eyes out into 2013.  The first week of January, Karen and I will be headed to Dunwoody, Georgia for the 2013 Congress on Evangelism and then sharing a week apart to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.  Yes, I am already excited about that.

Then, in February 2013, I am joining a group from Laurel Hill UMC and the Friends of Barnabas Foundation for a medical mission to Honduras.  Please be in prayer for the saving work we will accomplish in Jesus’ name!
