Global Hunger Relief
Southern Baptists are fighting the global hunger crisis through Global Hunger Relief.
Established in 1978 as the World Hunger Fund, Global Hunger Relief is an initiative of the Southern Baptist Convention dedicated to combating hunger and sharing the Bread of Life.
GHR funds are used in Gospel-centered hunger projects that share God’s love in both word and deed.
Bread banks will be distributed following today’s service.  You can find the banks in the Foyer and at the side entrance to the Sanctuary.  Prayerfully fill your bank and return it to the church at the Thanksgiving Eve service Wednesday, November 24.  One-half of the money collected will go to the BGAV to help end world hunger and the other half will go to support local food needs.

Church Steering Committee
The Church Steering Committee will meet in the Fellowship Hall following today’s service.

Pastor Search Committee Update
The Pastor Search Committee continues to meet weekly and work diligently.  The committee gave an update on progress to this point following the service Sunday, October 3.  Please continue to pray for the committee and for our future pastor as together we strive to follow God’s will for our church.

Appreciating your pastor
Many people have complex relationships with their pastors because faith, church and God involve a mix of emotions.  We have particular ideas about church practices, congregational priorities, the minister’s use of time, money, authority and more.
But most pastors are deeply devoted to Christ and believe that God has called them to serve in a certain place.  They have the best of intentions and work hard to share the good news of the gospel.  So in honor of Pastor Appreciation Month in October, consider the following:
God doesn't call the qualified; he qualifies the called.  Your pastor may need time to learn and develop certain skills.  (Everyone does!)  Bless pastors with your patience.
We don't change the message; the message changes us.  You probably won’t like all your pastor’s sermons or newsletter columns.  But instead of complaining, ponder that something may rub you the wrong way because God is trying to change you.  Keep an open mind and heart.
If a church wants a “better” pastor, it just needs to pray for the one it has.  Pray often and caringly for your pastors, church leaders and their families.  The role is challenging, so support them spiritually and ask God to reveal his love and grace to these special servants.

Mission Action
The October Mission Action is to collect items for Blessing Bags for our local fire departments and rescue squad.  Items needed include:
