VOTERS’ MEETING – A Congregational Voters’ Meeting is scheduled for next Sunday, November 16 following the Worship Service to discuss calling a pastor. Please plan on attending.

HARVEST FOOD COLLECTION:  Our annual collection of nonperishable food items and TURKEYS will continue until Thanksgiving.  Our own food pantry needs restocking, and “extras” will be delivered to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and Community Mission.  Both agencies are in need of assistance to help local Niagara Falls families during the upcoming holidays.  Turkeys will be stored in our downstairs freezer.  Feel free to ask an usher for assistance in carrying turkeys downstairs.  Please remember this project as you do your grocery shopping each week if you are able.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated each year by these agencies.

OUR SPECIAL MISSION for November is the Samaritan Counseling Center.  Samaritan works out of several locations in Western New York, including Holy Ghost Lutheran Church in Bergholz and St. Martin Lutheran Church in North Tonawanda.  Our own Rev. Dr. Erwin Brese is one of several counselors working with Samaritan.  Samaritan offers Christian-based counseling to help those struggling with many of life’s challenges.  If you wish to support the work done by Pastor Brese and the other counselors at Samaritan, place your special mission envelope in the offering plate before the end of November.
