We will once again be collecting for some families in need this month with a Thanksgiving meal.  Magda Martinez will help with locating the families from her school counselor.  We will be providing a turkey, green beans, stuffing, potatoes and rolls. We will have a sign-up sheet in the fellowship hall.  Let us help those who are struggling.

Ned Swarner entered the church triumphant on Oct. 4 after a short illness.  He was 97 years old – our oldest member.  He leaves behind Betty Jo Swarner, his wife of 68 years, and daughter, Susan Langston, her husband, Denny and their daughters, Kelsey and Courtney, as well as a son, Ned Swarner, Jr.  Keep the family in your prayers.  We will all miss Ned, his vegetables and his presence.
Congratulations to Morgan and Nancy Butler who were married Oct. 20 in a chapel at Capilla Del Rio in Rio Grande City.  Morgan is the son of Pat Butler and the grandson of Carol Harville.
