ANNOUNCEMENTS:
The Deacons will be hosting a special Thanksgiving Fellowship after worship on Sunday, November 18th in the Fellowship Hall.
 
Hangin' of the Greens will be Saturday, December 1st at 3 PM when we will prepare the church for the birth of our Savior.  Afterward we plan to go out for a pizza supper.  All are welcome to join us.

 Donations of non-perishable food items are greatly appreciated and are donated to Our Lady of Consolation Food Pantry.
 
Our church in partnership with The Congregations of Merrillville, sponsors a free "community meal" on Saturdays between 11AM-2PM -  "Feeding the Flock".  There will are eleven churches in the Merrillville area partnering together with the Congregations of Merrillville to provide these meals each Saturday:  Dyer Presbyterian, First Presbyterian Church, Hour of Restoration, Impact Church, Our Lady of Consolation, Peace United Church of Christ, Protection of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church, St. Andrew the Evangelist, St. Joan of Arc, Trinity Lutheran, and Word of Life plus both the Merrillville Breakfast and Lunch Kiwanis and The Lions Club.  We are all looking forward to bringing this ministry to Merrillville.  To date we have provided over 45,000 meals. 
 
We are 'nesting'  in our Church with The Hour of Restoration who worships at 10 AM on Sunday in the Chapel and enjoys Bible Study on Tuesday evenings from 7 until 9 PM.  And, Grace & Power Ministries who worship at 12 Noon on Sunday and Wednesday evening for Bible Study.
