Creating Connections - A New Initiative for the Bible Class and Church - The Bible Class will be starting a new program called Creating Connections which is modeled after a program that was started in the Morton Church. Basically, a high school student will be matched with a member of the church (aka Faith Friend). To start off with, they will meet one on one, once a month, from January through May. A few ideas for meeting are; going on a walk/bike ride, out to eat, or work on a project. Any members wanting to participate should contact Sis. April Hartter by next Sunday, October 27th. We will have a meeting on October 27th to go over the details with the Bible Class students during Sunday School (parents are welcome). There will be a detailed meeting for the Faith Friends later inNovember. Any questions, please contact sisters April Hartter, Gini Gerber, and Jodi Hoffman.
