Proposed By-Law Changes
Our proposed by-law changes were announced in the service last Sunday and are now in writing and will be passed out this Sunday in your bulletin. We will vote on these changes in the morning service.
WMU Shoes/Socks Project
Many children in our local schools are living in need of the very basic things in life - things we take for granted. For the last 3 years, our WMU has provided at least 100 pairs of new shoes to assure that no child goes to school in flip flops or worn out shoes. This year, we are very far below our goal. Please consider purchasing new shoes ( sizes 2 - 9, for boys and girls ) or we can use gently used shoes. Thank you for support of this ministry. Contact Mary Anne Bunton, Gail Crowe, Ann Bell, Misty Moore, Gail Strickland or Kathy Burgher with any questions.
Our next on-going, bi-weekly Friday night Bible study with Jim Reeves will meet Friday, December 1st.. We'll continue our verse by verse study through the book of Daniel. The study begins at 7:00 pm and will meet in the old fellowship hall. The next study will be on December 15th.
Everyone is invited to a couple's wedding shower for Stephen Solesbee and Amy, his fiance, on Sunday, December 3rd, from 2pm - 3:30pm in the CLC They are registered at Belk & Target

On Thursday, December 7th, we will be going to The Galley on Lake Hartwell. Everyone is welcome to go. Just let Shirley or Harold Bagwell know by December 2nd. We need a firm number for our reservation at 6:45pm. The bus will leave the church at 5:30pm. The Bagwell's number is 847-9416
Sit 'n Stitch

Words to Ponder
In Chase the Lion, Mark Batterson writes that in 1983 Lorne Whitehead published an article about the domino chain reaction. You can picture it in your mind, can't you? You knock over a domino, and it sets off a chain reaction that can knock down hundreds of dominoes in a matter of seconds. But the unique significance of Whitehead's research was discovering that a domino is capable of knocking over a domino that is one-and-a-half times its size. So a two-inch domino can topple a three-inch domino. A three-inch domino can topple a four-and-a-half-inch domino. And a four-and-a-half-inch domino can topple a … well, you get the point.
By the time you get to the eighteenth domino, you could knock over the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Of course, it's leaning so that's not fair. The twenty-third domino could knock over the Eiffel Tower. And by the time you get to the twenty-ninth domino, you could take down the Empire State Building.
In the realm of mathematics, there are two types of progression: linear and geometric. Linear progression is two plus two equals four. Geometric progression is compound doubling. Two times two equals four. If you take thirty linear steps, you're ninety feet from where you started. But if you take thirty geometric steps, you've circled the earth twenty-six times!
Faith isn't linear. Faith is geometric. Every decision we make, every step of faith we take, has a chain reaction. And those chain reactions set off a thousand chain reactions we aren't even aware of. They won't be revealed until we reach the other side of the space-time continuum.
