Talent Show and Chili Cook-Off: Sunday, November 11th
The Stewardship committee is hosting a talent show featuring some of the many talented members of BSLC on Sunday, November 11th, following the 9:00 a.m. service.We are asking for your help to find participants for this talent show. If you know people in our congregation who have hidden talents (or well-known ones), please ask them if you could submit their names and talents on the sign-up sheet in the narthex. Or, if you would be willing to share your own personal skill, please sign the sheet in the narthex and let us know what talent you will share. Talents might include music, comedy, poetry, magic tricks, dance, etc.

In addition to Beautiful Savior's Got Talent on November 11th, we challenge all culinary artists to another chili cook-off. This was a great event two years ago. If you take the challenge to submit your best chili recipe for the congregation to consider, please sign up on the sheet in the narthex near the coat room so we know who will be participating. Blessings as you share the talents God's given you!

Rainforest Club Game Night: Friday, November 16th from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

BSLC Academy: November 18th and 25th
November's Beautiful Savior Academy will explore the topic of families in the Bible. Scripture describes God's plan for families in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. We also find many examples of families in the Bible that don't come close to meeting those expectations. Bill Cario will lead a two-part Academy, where we will explore what Scripture says about families and will discuss what that means for us today. Join us in the Fellowship Hall from 10:30-11:15 on Sunday, November 18th, and on Sunday, November 25th. All are welcome!

Airfare/meal inclusive cost is $4449 per person/double occupancy. Likely leaving June 29th, 2020. Brochures are available in the narthex.

Board Games Wanted
We are collecting gently used board games to use with the Karenni families. Some will be helpful in teaching numbers, colors, math skills, etc., and some will be given to the families. Thank you very much!

Prayer Shawl Ministry
If you are a knitter, you are invited to become part of a Prayer Shawl Ministry for the benefit of those on our prayer list and for a mission project. You would be doing this on your own time and at your convenience. The pattern is very simple, and as shawls are completed, they are blessed by the pastor and then distributed. For more information, please contact Jo Fenske.
