Saturday is our Fall Workday.  Many hands make light work!  Come around 9am ready to work!

This Sunday is our monthly Fellowship Lunch.  Please bring a main dish & dessert or a main dish & side.  
On Sunday evening we'll be hearing from Beni & Rachel Wilson on their ministry to international students.

We've prayed often for the HIlls' adoption--here is information about a practical way you can help:

Hill Family Adoption Fundraiser Rummage and Bake Sale
Saturday, Oct. 26th 9am-3pm Rain or Shine
Lafayette Reformed Presbyterian Church (1723 S 9th Street)

Needing donations of items to sell toward our adoption fund. Clothing, furniture, home goods, books, and anything you might not need anymore would be greatly appreciated.
If you can participate, let us know know. Items can be dropped off at the church or we can drive to you to pick them up in advance. We’re also holding a bake sale during the rummage sale and are asking for donated baked goods to sell to visitors. All proceeds will benefit our domestic infant adoption fund. Please let us know if you have any questions.
-Item Drop Off: Friday 10/25 3pm-7pm or Saturday 10/26 from 8am-9am
-Please contact James and Bonnie at or 765-418-2835 if you would like us to pick up the donated items

Crown and Covenant (the RPCNA's publishing house) has put all of their Psalter albums on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Play, Amazon music & Google Play. If you search for Crown & Covenant, you will find it. What a blessing and aid to private and family worship!

Michele D. is putting together a care package for Christina R.  if you have any ideas or would like to help, please let her know. 

Cariann has begun simplifying our missions bulletin board as well as updating the missions link in this newsletter. Please check them both out!

Small groups are rolling! Wednesdays, we're meeting at the Helds, at the church (kids' program available), at the Larsons. Please consider yourself warmly invited!

This year's Women's Retreat is rapidly approaching! November 1-2, 2019 at the Elkhart Reformed Presbyterian Church. The speaker will be Dr. Whitney Gamble, who will be speaking on "The Singular Passion of the Reformers." You can register online at by October 30th, 2019.
