TOY DRIVE: We are still collecting toys and games for our families in the community that attend Clothing Bank to give to their kids this Christmas. Our Toy Drive will be December 7 and 14. We are looking for new toys, games, crafts, and activities for ages 2-16. Last year we were able to give presents to 145 children due to your generosity. Let’s make this year just as great as last year! You can leave your unwrapped toy donations in the church office for Kayla to take care of. If you have any questions you can email Kayla at email@example.com. We can’t wait to have another great toy drive!
SOJOURNER SOURDOUGH: Do you like fresh sourdough bread? Do you like the crisp crust contrasting the moist and tender crumb? If so, you are in luck. The Sojourner Pathfinder club is selling Sojourner Sourdough. Each loaf is hand-made with the highest quality ingredients and is on sale for $6 for a 30 ounce loaf. If you would like to pick up a loaf, please contact Rich Wong via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds will be in support of Pathfinder International Camporee 2024!
NEW SPANISH SABBATH SCHOOL CLASS: La iglesia de Bellevue ya tiene una clase de escuela sabática en español. Los invitamos a estar con nosotros empezando a las 9:45. La razón de esta clase es para que tengamos un lugar donde se pueda expresar en lengua nativa de aquellos que se sienten mejor al hablar su lengua y para que visitas de habla española encuentren un ambiente que les sea ameno y más cómodo para ellos. Además hay muchos hispanos que viven muy cerca de la iglesia. Quizás nos animemos a lanzarnos a la calle a buscarlos.

PRAYER MEETING UPDATE: Prayer meeting will now be met on Turbobridge on your own phone! We will still meet on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. To do this follow these steps from Pastor Maylan:
1. Call this toll-free number: 1-800-309-2350.
2. A woman’s very classy British voice will welcome you to Turbobridge, and will ask you to “Enter your conference ID and press pound (#).” That number, which is the same every night, is 8804901 and then #.
You may hear people chatting if you join the line a few minutes early, then at 7:30 I’ll welcome people and we’ll get started. We’ll invite you to share one at a time what’s been going on during this unexpected time that’s kept us apart, and welcome prayer requests and also what you want to thank the Lord for. We will ask you to “mute” your phone when it’s not your turn to talk, to prevent a lot of miscellaneous noise and feedback. To mute your phone, push the star key (*), then the number 6 (or just use the “mute” button on your phone’s handset).
Then we’ll pray—everyone who would like to offer a prayer may do so, but no one needs to feel pressured to participate out loud. We’ll all be united in prayer, whether we listen or speak. The most important thing is that we’ll be coming to the Lord, together. -Pastor Maylan and Shelley
