This Sunday we will continue to have two services at 9:00am and 10:30am. There will be nursery & toddler care and children’s programming for all ages during the second service. If you prefer, you may attend the first service and sit together as a family. Please take note that the service will be live streamed only during the 9:00am service. It will be posted on Face Book if you prefer to watch the service at a later time.
**Please note: NLF continues to strive to help limit the further spread of Covid-19 by practicing social distancing in our building and asking individuals to wear masks when social distancing cannot be maintained. **
Preteen Pumpkin Patch:
The Connect – Preteen’s Pumpkin Patch was a huge success last week! They have restocked the pumpkin wagon and will be open following both worship services. Pumpkins are available to purchase by donation. They are raising funds to be able to “adopt some kids/families” at Christmas. Thank you for considering us for your pumpkin decor!

Organize Your Health Information:
Do You Have A list of Medications? Insurance Numbers? Health Conditions? Emergency Contacts? and Doctors? Tired of writing this information every time you visit a healthcare provider? Carol Miller will be available in the church lobby this Sunday to introduce you to a new and simple way to have all your information in one place for all your healthcare visits. There is no charge for this assistance; just a simple questionnaire to fill out and Carol will do the rest. For more information, please call, text, or e-mail Carol Miller.
Operation Christmas Child:
Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes are available in the church foyer. Please consider picking up one or more boxes to fill for children around the world. The fliers explain how and with what to fill these shoe boxes. The final date to return these boxes is Sunday, November 15th. Let’s spread God’s love to children who are needy. If you have questions, contact Cathy Frey.
