Dear Church Family, 

    Another week has rolled around. Time is sure flying by! We are already to the middle part of October and Halloween is almost upon us!
Things to look forward to:
          The Buddy Walk is Saturday, Oct. 28
th
. Sign up in the Narthex.
          Trunk or Treat is Sunday, Oct. 29th
. Join us for some Halloween fun.
          Our Stewardship Campaign will be starting soon. Our theme this year is "F.C.C. Strong." Stewardship packets will be available soon.    
         We will honor our veterans in a special service on Nov. 12th

    Last Saturday we had the privilege of hosting the CASA carnival on our church grounds. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. These special people advocate for children who have been abused and/or neglected and they organized a carnival for "their kids." It was wonderful to see the church grounds so full of activity and fun! One of the foster mothers told me that it was her daughter's "best day ever!" The Holy Spirit was definitely present.
    The Beaumont Police Dept. and Fire Dept. were present showing off their equipment, as well as Gator Country, The Art Museum of Southeast Texas, and Valero. The kids enjoyed carnival games, bouncy houses, arts and crafts, food, music, and giveaways. And it was all free to the kids and their caregivers. It's hard to put into words the spirit of peace and joy that was felt amongst the partici-pants of the carnival, but hopefully we can ALL experience it again next year!
    On a personal note- I will be taking next week off. (Oct. 23-28) My parents are moving so I need to go to Austin to help them move. Marty will still be in town because he just started his new job. So, everyone stay safe and well while I'm gone!
Blessings,
Pastor Beth
