There are a lot of activities this week for the youth and children at Antioch.
Wednesday night will be M&Ms and adult prayer meeting at 7:00. The youth should meet at the church at 6:30 and they will begin setting up for the fall festival which will be Friday.
Thursday night the youth will go to Lake City to tour Judgement House. Please pray for this trip that many hearts will be touched. The group will leave the church at 4:30 PM. There may be a wait to get in, but following the tour they will go out to eat. There is no admission fee for the Judgement House, but youth will need money to eat dinner. We are hoping to return to the church by 9:00 PM.
Friday night will be the Fall Festival! This is going to be a fun filled evening which will begin at 6:00 with a light dinner. Dinner will be followed by a time of games, prizes, pony rides, bounce house, cotton candy and popcorn machines. A cake walk will be held and a hay ride will round out the activities. There will be something for everyone, so bring the family and invite a guest for a great time!

The Antioch family will be preparing a lunch for the family following the service. Ladies, your ministry of cooking and caring for the family is such a blessing to families during times like these. Claudie has a very large family that we are able to minister to through this lunch. Thank you for sharing and for helping.
We rejoice and find comfort that she is no longer in pain or dealing with disease, but enjoying the glories of heaven and worshiping the Heavenly Father.
Please keep her family in your prayers and there will be more details when they become available.

The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.
The judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether...
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord my strength and my Redeemer.

Other highlights were a youth luncheon and fellowship which was well attended and some great ideas were put into place for the youth. Wonderful testimonies were given from a recent widow's conference and prayerful plans for a widows/grief ministry in our church, M&Ms had a great turnout of children last night and at choir practice, we were overflowing!
As we enjoy these blessings in our church, let's continue to be steadfast in prayer for our church and be alert for opportunities to welcome the new families and to show love to one another.
Some needs to be aware of this week are as follows:
Claudie B. is still very low, pain, seizures and she is not eating well.
Frances P. has some testing this week.
Caroline's mother is in the hospital in NC.
Carol A. is doing better and is recovering at Surrey Place.
The new family - Pat and Sandy R.'s daughter and soon to be born baby girl.
Please remember these and others on the back of the bulletin in your prayers.
