October 8 through October 31
Sign up for Pumpkin Patch shifts in the Narthex, or online here.
Operation Christmas Child
TUMC will once again be supporting Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a project of Samaritan’s Purse, as one of our fall missions. This worthwhile project brings hope and joy to children living in desperate situations worldwide through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s Love. Decorated “shoe” boxes and flyers describing how to pack a shoe box will be available in the Family Room starting Sunday September 25 throughout the month of October. Please prayerfully consider taking a box (or two!) per family. The UNWRAPPED, filled boxes are due back to the Family Room collection station by Sunday, November 6, 2016.
Trunk or Treat is October 30th from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Our goal this year is to have 40 trunks. There is a signup sheet in the narthex for the event. We also need candy and candy alternatives donated for the event. Please contact Samantha Aupperlee if you have any questions.
The families of Rick and Jeff Potter would like to thank the congregation of TUMC for the many prayers and the caring and devotion exhibited at the beautiful prayer as part of the service on Sunday, October 2nd. Rick was very touched by the video that was sent to him, and was able to face his operation with great peace of mind. Both the surgery for the tumor removal and the reconstructive surgery that followed were considered an amazing success, lasting 17 hours. Rick then spent about five days in the ICU at Emory University Hospital, then moved to the progressive care unit, making great progress at every step. Rick is hoping to return home from the hospital the week of 10/24/2016.
In the words of his wife, Paige: “The outpouring of prayers has been awe inspiring and God's grace amazing. Please continue to keep Rick in your prayers so we can have him back to his fully functioning self as soon as possible.”
