ANNOUNCEMENTS


Adult Choir will rehearse Sunday at 5pm.  Youth Bible studies will also meet at 5pm.  Join us for our evening worship service at 6pm.


We are participating again this year in Samaritan’s Purse ministry’s “Operation Christmas Child.” If you’d like to help, you can pick up a (flattened) shoe box in the copy room. A shoebox filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies tangibly demonstrates God’s love to children all around the world. PLEASE, do not include any food! In the copy room, there are detailed instructions on how to pack the boxes (or go to https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box/). You can drop off your filled box and $9 shipping donation in the copy room on or before Sunday, November 17.


Wednesday, November 27 is our night to provide meals for Signal Mountain Social Services families. If you'd like to volunteer to provide food, please sign up here on the November 27 date: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/m6r5j49met6t or talk to Matt Hamilton. Also, if you can help deliver the food, please let Matt know.


On Saturday, November 30 come help us “green” the church as we decorate for the Christmas season. We will meet at 9:30 a.m. and have Christmas music, coffee and hot chocolate. Bring the family and enjoy the time together as we reflect on and remember the advent of our Lord Jesus, that a Child was born and a Son was given!


As a part of Wayside’s contribution to SMSS Christmas Boxes, we need to provide large containers of laundry soap (108) and boxes of hot chocolate (108). These items can be placed in and around the basket in The Connector by the Book Table, or in Mary Pat/Brent’s office. Other needs that aren’t a must but would be helpful would be socks, especially diabetic socks. These items need to be at the church by December 10. Also, gently used items like nice clothes, toys, or other things for folks that have trouble affording Christmas presents for their family can be taken to Signal Mountain Bible Church for their annual Christmas yard sale.


Ladies, please join us in March for a biblical theology workshop taught by Nancy Guthrie. Mrs. Guthrie is touring the US and teaching women how to study their Bibles. This workshop includes a Friday night session with dessert and coffee, and two Saturday morning sessions with a continental breakfast. She will be in Chattanooga March 6-7, 2020 at First Presbyterian Church. Early registration is open now, as space is limited. Tickets are $20. To register, you may go to our church website home page and click on the icon for the Nancy Guthrie workshop. When registering, use the code: WAYSIDE5 to receive a $5 discount. We look forward to learning together there!
