Dan River's Mainstream

Congratulations!
Congratulations to Chase and Ally Griffin on the birth of their son, Cameron West Griffin, born Saturday, November 9, at 11:39 AM.  He weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz. and was 20 inches long.  Proud grandparents are J. R. and Mary Lynn Griffin.


Children’s Christmas Play Practice
Rehearsals for the Children’s Christmas Play have begun.  They will practice each Sunday at 5:00 PM through Sunday, December 8.  The play will be presented Sunday, December 15, at 6:00 PM.
Adult Bible Study - Advent (The Weary World Rejoices)
Experience the Christmas season anew this year by studying Advent, why we celebrate it, and how it fuels our worship of Jesus.  Understand the anticipation and waiting the Old Testament world endured, the joy and new life signaled by the coming of Christ, and the way Advent points to the glory of God still to come.  The study resumes Wednesday, November 13, at 7:00 PM.


World Hunger Offering
We can fight world hunger by collecting money in our Bread Banks for World Hunger Relief to help feed people!  There are still banks available at the entrances to the Sanctuary if you did not get yours.
One-half of the money collected will go to help end world hunger and the other half will go to support a backpack ministry providing food for children in Halifax County schools as we partner with Hunting Creek Baptist Church.
You are asked to prayerfully give and then return your offering banks during the Thanksgiving Eve Service Wednesday, November 27.


Youth Bible Study
The youth are studying David Platt’s youth Bible study, Follow Me.  This 6 part DVD and workbook series based on David Platt’s book, Follow Me, examines what Jesus really meant when He said, “Follow Me.”  The Youth will meet at 6:00 PM Sunday, November 24, for the next Bible Study session.


Budget Committee
Copies of the amended proposed 2020 budget are at the entrances to the Sanctuary.  Please note changes on Education Ministry, lines 5551 and 5552.
The final budget will be presented for a vote Sunday, December 1, at 10:55 AM, just prior to the service.


Poinsettias
Orders for poinsettias are now being placed.  Each 7-inch pot is $8.00.  Order forms are located at the side entrance to the Sanctuary.  Order forms should be turned in to the Church Office or given to a Flower Committee member by December 1.  You may take your poinsettias home following the Christmas Eve service.


Mission Action
Our November church-wide mission project is the collection of items for the Young Life Ministry.  Items needed are bottles of water, Capri Sun, nabs, individual bags of chips, candy, and fruit snacks.


Pajama Drive
During the month of November, W.E.E. School is sponsoring a Pajama Drive.  We are collecting new pajamas, sizes newborn – adult (focusing on children’s sizes), for children who have experienced displacement and/or trauma.  It is our hope to give children a “good night.”  For each pair of pajamas collected Scholastic Books donates a new book.  Children will, therefore, be given some “good nights.”  If you would like to participate, there is a basket at the educational building entrance, or Karen Smith will shop for you.
