Please join us for a great time of fellowship and treat! Invite a friend or neighbor to join you!
Directions: Place 3-4 treats in each bag (depending on size of treat). Bring some extras for tasting! Bring as many bags as you’d like, and that is how many you will leave with.

Visiting and helping Nadine Sparks
Our long time member Nadine Sparks is now living at Chancellor’s Village and would love to have visits from young and old. It is a particularly difficult and lonely time for her as she normally would be going to Florida this time of year but is prevented from doing so due to her health. She would appreciate helping hands around her apartment, walking her 2 cocker spaniels, and running errands to the pharmacy and grocery store as her mobility is not good right now. Even a phone call would be greatly appreciated.  For more information, please contact George Giddens.

Loving Our City (L.O.C.) Fredericksburg-Get involved in our community!
There are many destitute children in our community attending public schools.  Hugh Mercer Elementary in the City has 19 homeless students and 15 more living in motels with their families.  We have an opportunity to provide some basic necessities for them. With the onset of cold weather, gently used or new coats in children’s sizes 6 to 12 are desperately needed along with gloves, scarves, and new hats for kids in kindergarten through 2nd grade. Toiletries such as toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, small toiletry bags and soap, may be donated in the white Loving Our City box in the foyer. Monetary gifts are welcome.  If you would like more information or have any questions check https://twitter.com/LOCFDX or https://www.facebook.com/LOCFDX to see the most recent needs for these children.

Babysitter (paid) needed for a New Life Women’s Bible Study Tuesday mornings from 9:20-11:40am beginning Jan 6th.
Homeschool teens welcome. Contact Christine in the office.

New Life’s 40th Anniversary Celebration- July 11-12, 2015
If you are interested in being on the planning committee, please contact Christine Fulcrod. The first meeting will be December 7 at 4:30 pm. Also let the office know if you would like to give a brief testimony during a Sunday service between January and July, sharing how being a part of New Life has helped you to grow spiritually.

Do you have a heart for missions? The Missions Committee is looking for new members!
They meet once a month on a Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. The committee is starting to plan for next year’s March conference and is a bit short-handed right now. Please contact the office for more information if you are interested.

Fredericksburg Pregnancy Center (F.P.C) News
F.P.C. is always looking for volunteers, including Board Members. There are all kinds of volunteer projects including consultants, reception help, stuffing envelopes, etc. Board members are required to attend a monthly meeting and don’t need any experience as a board member, just a profession of faith in Christ and a desire to serve mothers and their babies in many areas. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Eileen Roberts.

Several Afghan immigrant women are looking for work, especially in the area of housecleaning. None are believers yet, but they are at various places in their journeys toward Christ — and would benefit from more contact with Christians. Other variables are their English language abilities, skills, number of hours and pay needed, etc. Please contact Debra Smith to learn more.

Bulletin Folding
Fall is a great time to fold bulletins – older children are in school, schedules are more regular, and you can plan a lunch date and follow it up with service to the church! Do you have a couple hours on a Friday afternoon you can spare? Sign up HERE to fold bulletins after 1 pm some Friday. Takes about 2 hours (faster if you bring a friend!) Questions? Ask Pam in the office.

Looking forward to this season of music and fellowship opportunities at New Life.

“Sing to the Lord, for He has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.”

Isaiah  12:5

Looking forward to this Christmas season of music and fellowship opportunities at New Life. A time for joyous worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and loving our neighbors with the sharing of the gospel!

All for His glory,
Kathryne Marple
