  This Sunday evening, November 3, there will be a combined evening service held at First CRC in Edgerton at 
 6:30 P.M (there will be no evening service in Chandler). This worship service will mark Reformation Day and 
 Pastor Scott Muilenburg of First CRC will be preaching. Make plans to join as we worship our Triune God alongside
 his people from the area. Refreshments will be served following the service.

  It's never too late to accept God's call and experience the profound spiritual flourishing that comes when we share 
 with the hungry.  Be sure to return your Peter Fish banks next week.  We'll take a collection next week that will go 
 directly to World Renew's work with families like the Egongus.  Don't know who the Egongus are? Discover their story
 in your devotional. 821 million people around the world are hungry! Next week, we'll be observing World 
 Hunger Sunday.   But God wants more than an observance of days.  He wants our hearts. In your mailboxes are the 
 World Hunger Campaign devotionals.  Spend some time over the next two weeks considering His call to "spend
 ourselves in behalf of the hungry." It's an amazing opportunity that comes with a profound promise.
