November 18 the council will report on the November 4 table discussions in fellowship hall meeting. Thanksgiving potluck on this day, November 18. Bring a dish to share. Pledge cards will be received on November 18. Begin thinking of your commitment to your church in your new year, and please plan to make a year-end gift of thanks to the general fund or to the Peace Forever capital fund.
