The Halloween Carnival will be October 26 from 5:30-7pm in Binkley Hall and the Memorial Garden. It’s a wonderful way to spend an evening. This year there will be food, games, crafts, and a costume contest! If you would like to get involved, contact Abbey Echols at email@example.com or 903-893-6514.
The next time you are at the grocery store will you consider grabbing a bag of Halloween candy for us? We are gearing up for our carnival, and need candy donations. Donations can be dropped in the church office.
Mission of the Month: Grayson Crisis Center
Grayson Crisis Center Courage Baskets
Women and children often leave an abusive relationship and arrive at the Grayson Crisis Center with very little money or personal and household items. Once they have completed their stay at the Crisis Center Shelter, and are ready to reenter the world and begin a new chapter in their lives, they need household necessities. Each family is presented with a Courage Basket, which is filled with items to help make the transition into their new place of residence easier. These Courage Baskets (which can be a laundry basket) are filled with the following items: cleaning products, shower curtain/rings/liner, bathroom trash can, plunger, small home tool set, toilet paper, mop bucket, bathroom rug, towels/washcloths, and scissors. Each completed basket costs $70-$80. Our goal is to be able to provide at least 15 complete baskets to the Crisis Center. You can provide one individually, as a Sunday School Class, or make a monetary donation. Checks should be marked “Crisis Center Courage Baskets” and can be dropped in the offering plate or the church office. The Missions Committee will use the money to do the shopping for you! This is a wonderful way to show our love and support to women and children within our community. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Shannon Cain at 903-421-6269.

Let’s talk about faith and money. How does our giving affect our relationship with God? How does our relationship with God affect our giving? How does being a follower of Jesus shape all of our behaviors concerning money—how it is earned, spent, saved, and offered to God? We are offering an all-church study of these issues throughout the month of October. Click the link to see a list of participating classes.
