It's not too late to attend the Right to Life Banquet tomorrow night at 6pm. Talk to Jon Held if you're interested but haven't registered yet.

The Youth Group Service Project is this Saturday at IRPC, 10am-1pm with a pizza lunch. Please make plans to be there!

Saturday evening at 6:30pm we will have our Deacon Election at IRPC.  Please be in prayer for the potential servants elected to serve our congregation. Any absentee ballots need to be given to David Carr in a sealed envelope before the election begins.

Thursday, Nov 14th, 7pm at the RPC of Lafayette, Dr. Rich Holdeman will be speaking on "Living With Cancer, A biblical perspective on living with a dreaded disease."  

We are looking forward to hosting a Thanksgiving Psalm Sing on November 24 and our annual Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service at 7pm on November 27th. These would be great ways to introduce people to our congregation.
Cornerstones (IRPC's Women's ministry) will be Thursday, Nov 21st, 7:30pm at the Bright's home. (Note date change.)

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!
