Thanksgiving Blessing, 2014

Our annual Thanksgiving Blessing is rapidly approaching.  We will provide a Thanksgiving meal, including a fresh turkey, to friends in our community.  This is a tangible way we can let people know that God loves them.

You can help in two ways:

– Each Thanksgiving basket cost $25.  Your contributions will help us bless more people.  You can make your donation now by clicking here.

– You can volunteer for the event, which takes place on the morning of November 22 in the Goodwill Parking Lot on New Shackle Rd. in Hendersonville. Volunteer check-in is at 8:00 a.m.,  and the give-away will start at 9:00 a.m.

We will also have need for volunteer to pack the meals, the night before, so if you can come to the church lobby at
6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 21 to prepare the boxes for food.

This is our seventh year in a row to do this outreach, and we want to reach more people than every before!Your generosity will make the difference, so ask the Lord how you can contribute.

Costa Rica Trip, 2015

Costa Rica 2015

Are you ready to go on an adventure with God and CIL friends? We are already planning for our 2015 Costa Rica Mission Trip. The last two years, Alex Lute has led a group to the Carpia area near San Jose, CR, where poverty and limited opportunities have negatively effected generations. Our team will be there again July 11-18, 2015, conducting a VBS, participating in construction projects and connecting with the Costa Rican people. The construction project is a new addition to this year’s trip, so those of you good with a wheel barrel and shovel, this may be the trip for you.

If you want to learn about this amazing opportunity, Alex will be conducting the same informational meeting twice in November. Both Sunday, November 2 and 9, there will be a meeting at 10:10 a.m. in the “Living Room” at CIL. Pick either meeting, and learn the details of this life-changing trip. If you are even slightly interested in this trip, I encourage you to attend this information meeting and discover what a great opportunity this is for you!

There’s a note of crispness in the air………..

a hint of changing color in leaves that are beginning to loosen their grip on branches, and sweaters and boots are being pulled from storage. This is the time of year that, in my house, the crockpot is set out on the counter where it will remain until spring.

I love soups and stews and chilis with all those wonderful mixtures of flavors and smells and tastes. The fall Soup and Salad Supper with the women of CIL is one of my favorite evenings of the year. Tables laden with crockpots full of soup mastery, salads of all sorts, and desserts that will make you put away your calorie counter for one night – topped off with laughter and conversation and sharing among some amazing women.

The Soup and Salad Supper is Friday, November 7th at 6:30 p.m. Ladies, you’re invited to be part of this fun evening (and feel free to bring friends.) There is no charge, just contribute a crockpot of soup, a salad or a dessert if you can. If life gets crazy and you can’t bring anything, come on anyway. This may be just what you need!

Please register online or at the Communication Center. Childcare is provided; include your childcare need information on your registration.

See you on the 7th!
