“THREE GIFTS FOR JESUS”
These first 3 weeks of November, our sermons are exploring 3 different Bible stories of persons offering gifts to Jesus. Last week, my sermon focused on an unusual gift of perfume.  This week it’s about somebody sharing their lunch.  Then the 3rd Sunday, my sermon will take a look at some guys who said, “yes!”  As we consider these three gifts, we will all be thinking and praying about our own offering gifts to be made in the coming year. Please pick up your Pledge Packet for 2018 at the door as you leave the service this Sunday.  If you miss any of the “Three Gifts” sermons they can be heard at www.lpumchurch.org
 
 
LAST DAY TO RETURN CHRISTMAS BOXES:  If you are putting together an Operation Christmas Child gift box, this Sunday is the last day to RETURN the completed box.  Please note the request on the packing box for $9 to be included for shipping.
