OCTOBER 24 - 25: LIGHTHOUSE MEN'S RETREAT
Lighthouse men will be gathering at the church at 6:00 pm on Friday to head down to Glen Lake down in Glen Rose, TX. Lighthouse Men will get to experience a special guest, Chris Legg. He is a licensed minister and professional counselor. He is the Campus Pastor for FBC Tyler’s South Campus and he runs the thriving Alethia Family Counseling Center in Tyler, Texas… counseling, speaking and consulting.
He is a graduate of Texas A&M and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, with degrees in Religious Ed. and Marriage and Family Therapy, and has developed the Phalanx discipleship ministry for men. Chris and his lovely wife Ginger have been honeymooning since 1993, and have been blessed with five great kids: Mark, Ellie, Holland, Michael and Emma.
He has written a Bible Study discipleing other men – especially sons, called The Gauntlet. Ask him about men’s ministry, tomahawk throwing or fostering kids if you have some time.
Chris can be contacted at 903-561-8995 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 16: Operation Christmas Child
Looking for a way to give as a family this Christmas? Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful way to help a child a need. All you need is a cardboard or plastic shoe box and fill with small items for either a boy or a girl. The items can include small toys, school supplies, hygiene items, accessories, and a personal note (some restrictions do apply). UMW will be collecting the boxes at the missions table October 26 - November 16.
For more information regarding Operations Christmas Child you can contact Sherry Mannebach at Sherry.Mannebach@gmfinancial.com. You can also visit the Operation Christmas Child website at http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ .

STARTING NOVEMBER 9: A New Series - God Called and I Don't Understand
A new Series, God Called and I Don't Understand, starts November 9th and goes through November 23rd. This will be a fun and amazing series. Think of questions for Frank that you haven't found the answer to. Such as why do bad things happen? What do you think the end of the world will be like?
So bring your phones and be ready to text your questions in during the sermon.

THROUGH NOVEMBER 18: LET'S DANCE
Would you like a fun date night out? How about time to connect with your partner? Would you like to praise God through fellowship and music? Well then, Let's Dance! Join us for some Country Western, Ballroom and Latin dancing together every Tuesday beginning October 14 - November 18, 7-8pm, for a 6 week session. Every week we will be introduced to easy and fun dances from several genres that will give you a good base to be able to take time out of busy life and connect with each other. Singles are welcome, too! Anyone ages 18 and up invited!
Hope to dance with you soon! Everyone needs to wear a shoe that stays on their foot. No mules, no flip flops, etc. Tennis shoes aren't great because they are heavy and don't slide. Other than that there are no special attire specifications.
DECEMBER 14: Stop Hunger Now Meal Packing Party
A 'Stop Hunger Meal Packing Party' is being held December 14 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm and is sponsored by Worship Arts. Looking for a way to help this Christmas as a family? You can help by making a donation, help assemble the meals, or do both! We plan on making 10,000 meals at the cost $0.29 per a meal.
REGISTRATION FOR EVENTS:
As you know, registration is available for most events prior to the event date. Your registration helps us to plan for attendance, supplies and staffing. This planning is crucial in making sure that all of our events are fun, quality events for our members, guests and community. It also ensures that we are able to wisely budget for events.
Without registration we may have to decrease the quantity and caliber of the events we offer. We don't want that to happen. How can you do your part? Please register ASAP for events you plan to attend.
We currently have many events available for registration at www.LFwired.org/register. Please check back often as we will continue to add new events as their registration is available.
