Susan Allison-Jones is attending the 2017 Toronto Festival of Preaching conference in Toronto today through Tuesday. Bob Thaler and Glyn Jones are also attending this conference.

Pray for Ralph and Eileen Lebold. Ralph, retired MCEC minister, has been in Grand River Hospital since Monday afternoon (October 16) as a result of numerous heart attacks. Pray for strength and patience as they wait to see what treatment is necessary.
We are so grateful for your prayers for the 2017 Special Assembly. We invite your continued prayers as the nation-wide church, regional churches and individual congregations begin to implement the decisions that were made. Please note that there is a follow-up Assembly news-sheet, recordings of the streamed video, and other materials to aid attendees in reporting back to congregations, and for non-attendees to get caught up, which can be found via a/href=" http://futuredirectionsmc.ca/special-assembly-2017-news/"target=blank>futuredirectionsmc.ca
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico. Continue to remember those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the MDS volunteer teams responding. Also keep in prayer the olunteers in Florida doing clean-up work after Hurricane Irma. Remember in prayer all the continuing projects MDS has ongoing that were started before this current hurricane season.
The Annual Report book is in your mailboxes as well as a directory of active members and participants. Please note that we have created a separate directory this year. It does not include the list of other members. If you wish a directory of the other members there are some on the table in the foyer.
This past week ten completed Mats were delivered to Christian Aid Ministries in Moorefield. There is a full container of mats ready for shipment directly to Haiti this week.
A quilt top is now ready for quilting. Anyone interested in quilting, please come Tuesday mornings beginning at 9:00 a. m.
The tree quilt hanging at the front of our worship space was created for the wedding of Kate Quanz and Eric Dienstfrey. This quilt was designed and created to show the trunks of the trees that grow together. Each are comprised of seven strips to symbolize the seven blessings that are recited in a traditional Jewish wedding. The seven blessings reflect themes that include the creation of the world and humankind, the importance of marriage, and the hope for harmony in the world. Thank you to Kate and Eric for sharing it with us.
