Hope house—OCTOBER Focus
Hope House offers hope to women (and their children) who have been abandoned by their spouses. Hope House first provides accommodations and meals (communal, everyone helps) for immediate needs. Followed by job and life skills training, and clothing. Hope House is always in need of the sort of clothing worn for job interviews and office settings. And eventually help the women in finding a place to live;
Whatever is needed to get their clients back into the
mainstream. The women at Hope House face daunting problems most of us can’t imagine.
Please be generous in every way possible.
Trunk or Treat
This year, STOC is going to take advantage of our wonderful neighborhood location by holding our first Trunk or Treat during Greendale’s Trick or Treat, on Oct 30th from 4-7pm. Decorate your cars and trunks and join us in the parking lot to pass out candy and treats (individual commercially packaged only, please) to the neighborhood children and see them in their costumes!
A good chance to plan ahead! Be ready for a Packer Game, Halloween Activities or just a good sandwich for the day. Order forms are on the table in the Narthex. We need your order requests TODAY, so we can have fresh treats ready for you after services next Sunday October 30th. Payment of $5.00 per sandwich can be made on delivery of your order.
Study of Islam
Between the scriptural connections and the political importance, we felt that Islam would be a great subject to study. All are welcome to join Men’s Bible Study, Tuesday evening, 6:30pm. Please join us.
