1. GMC leadership is asking for prayer as we will undergo a leadership transition soon. We are evaluating our leadership structure and roles in light of the changing strengths and gifts of our local Body. Please pray for wisdom and insight as we seek out how God is working in and maturing people in our church community and ministry.

Thanksgiving is almost upon us! We will be having our annual Thanksgiving potluck meal after service on Sunday 7th October. Small groups have been assigned to provide specific meals for the potluck, if you are not sure what you have been assigned to, please check with your small group leader. For those of you who are not attached to a small group, you are welcome to sign up to provide any meal and to help with set-up and cleaning up. We strongly encourage people to bring Tupperware from home so that we can reduce our waste and people can take food home if there are any leftovers

We are still looking for one or two people to provide the main dish (turkey and ham). If you are able to, please let John and I know as soon as possible. The cost of the main dishes will be covered by the church.

Here is the sign-up sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/1S8A2tahZeiIpJwpoJoVkU0Lntb1JZogAUcHrAmRV7us/edit?usp=sharing
