We will also learn about the struggle of the Iraqi refugees.

There is no charge to register, but a free-will offering basket will be placed at the event to help cover the costs and to bless the family and their Iraqi Church in El Cajon.

Please note that the event will be located in the clubhouse at Lake San Marcos, but access will be through the home of the Demarees (917 La Fiesta Drive, Lake San Marcos, 92078).

The deadline to register is November 29, but the sooner the better!

Carpooling will help with parking. Friends are welcome but all guests need to register.



Fall Family Fellowship

Fall is here and we hope you will be too–for our Fall Family Fellowship on Sunday, November 4.
 
After our 10:30am Worship Service, we will enjoy a chili potluck with lots of sides and fixin’s (baked potatoes, cornbread, salad, etc.)
 
This won’t just be any chili–this will be chili from participants in our chili cook-off who are submitting their very best recipes for your enjoyment.
 
Go here to let us know we can count on you to bring chili to share!
 
For the rest of us who’d like to attend but not submit chili for the cook-off, we’d ask that you bring a side or dessert to share.
 
Use the chart below to determine what kind of item to bring.
 
If your last name begins with the letter…
 
A-H: Bring a bread item (corn bread, rolls, etc.)
 
I-Q: Bring a salad (green, pasta, potato, etc.)

Go here to let us know you’re coming and what you plant to bring.
 
Following the potluck lunch, there will be a variety of activities for the whole family to enjoy, including a bounce house, field games, a pie eating contest, a craft station, and more!

Fill with Gifts
 
Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal.
 
Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. See gift “DOs and DON’Ts” here.
 
 
Pray
 
Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
