November Family Fun Night coming!
On Friday, November 16, 6-8 p.m. in Wesley Hall we will enjoy a potluck dinner and candlemaking event.  Liz Moon will help the children (and any interested adult) make colorful and amazing candles, which could possibly become Christmas gifts next month!  The cost for each candle ranges from $3.50 to $16.75, depending on shape and size. This was a popular and well-attended event last year, so to give enough time for the candlemaking, anyone who can come early (anytime after 5:15) are welcome. We’ll provide paperware and beverages; bring a dish to pass for our meal. 
Sunday School  is underway! It isn’t too late to join in the action! 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
