News and Announcements

Announcements are due in the church office by Thursday, 9am.

**Today’s Message – We’ve been talking about balance on our lives and one way our lives can get out of balance is when bad things happen, when stuff hits the fan.  Today’s message will explore what to do to get balance back.

**New Members Class – Would you like to become an official member of Risen Christ?  Pastor will be holding a class on October 28, 4 PM – 7:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall in which you will learn about the nature of the church, the vision, values, and an overview of how we do our work here. At the end of the course, you will be asked if you would like to join the congregation, if you desire.  We do ask everyone to attend this class if you wish to become a member. See Pastor if interested.

**There is an Opportunity to Serve - families in our community right here at Risen Christ Church on November 10. We are looking for people to help BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER the Barnes & Miner Comedy Night. If you can help with during ONE of these times please stop by the welcome center to see the specific needs and sign up today! 

**Operation Christmas Child Shipping Time! - It's time to get ready to send out our shoeboxes! You can see what a big collection it is! :) Each box costs $9 to ship so we are hoping that everyone will go online to the Samaritan's Purse website, pay, and print out your trackable shipping labels. Then bring them back to put on boxes of your choice. If everyone does a few, we will have all 100 boxes covered for shipping. 20 are already done!  We will also take up a special offering on November 4 to cover any uncovered shipping costs. Thanks in advance for helping us reach this goal!!!

**Breakfast With Santa – will be held Saturday, Dec. 1. There will be some changes this year. There will be limited seats available for each seating.  60 for the 8:30 am seating and 80 for the 10:30 am seating, and will be on a first come first serve basis. THERE WILL BE NO TICKETS AT THE DOOR.  Ticket sales will begin on October 25 for Congregation members, and November 1 for our pre-school and the public. Price is still $5 for 2 and up, under 2 is FREE. Ticket order forms will be available on the cube wall. Please fill them out and return them to the church office with your payment.  You may also reserve your tickets by e-mailing the church office,, and include seating time and number of tickets needed with children’s ages. Praise God our event has become so popular, that we need to make these changes!

**Lost and Found – is located on the coat closet shelves.  Please check this area for any items which may belong to you by 10/28. Anything left will be donated.
