Thank You!
     Sincere thanks to everyone who volunteered to make our History of Hardin Valley event such a resounding success!  Thank you Don Hubbard for providing such a fascinating and informative presentation on the rich history of the community!  Your hard work shows your dedication and your love for the area and the people who's legacy lives on.  And, that you to all the people who attended!  You are truely the measure and reason for the success.  Thank you for blessing us with your attendance, and we hope to see you at future events at Marietta.
New Sunday School Class! 
     A new Sunday School class, titled "Live Anew", is starting.  This class is intended for young adults after they have graduated high school and are beginning the next stage in their lives.  "Live Anew" meets in a classroom downstairs nearest the kitchen during normal Sunday School at 11:00 am following the morning worship service on Sundays.
     In the past few years the Missions Committee has struggled with how best to meet the needs of those to whom we have provided food baskets and Angel Tree Gifts.  While we have helped, we have been made aware that our efforts may have been at times misdirected.  Therefore this year (with session approval) the committee is taking a different approach.  We are going to tailor our giving more to the needs of those we help.  As a result, there may be no angel tree this year.  We are looking to coordinate with the school or other organization in a toy drive and if those families we assist need help with gifts, to be more directly involved with them in that process.  If you would like to help by being available to be a "Santa's Helpter" and shopping with a family please contact us to discuss availability.
    Everyone is welcome to attend the Advent Potluck Dinner next Sunday, November 18, at 6:00 pm.  We will focus on preparing our minds and hearts for the holiday season with a family craft.  Please bring a dish or two to share with your family and friends at this event!  Please contact us if you have any questions.
     The 10th Annual Christmas Music Celebration will be held on Sunday, December 2, at 6:00 pm.  More details will be posted soon.
     Please join us for our Sunday evening activities!  There is something for all ages with activities and studies for children, middle school, high school, and adult.  There is even a meal at 5:30 so you don't have to cook followed by classes and activities from 6:00 to 7:00!  Please contact us if you have any questions, or just show up at 5:30 on Sunday evenings!  We look forward to seeing you there!

     The Buildings & Ground committee meets once a quarter: January, April, July, and October.  Any requests that are deemed non-emergencies will be addressed at the quarterly meeting.  Emergencies are defined as HVAC issues, water leaks, and security system problems.  Our church does not have a maintenance man on staff.  If there is an emergency, please contact the church office.  If there is an item that needs to be added to our next meetings' agenda, please contact any member of the Building & Grounds committee or the church office.  The next committee meeting will be in January.  The exact date will be announced when available.
     The office has been asked to remind everyone that we no longer take in clothing and other items for donations for Lost Sheep Ministry.  Please do not leave items at the church.  If you have those items to donate, an alternative is to take them to the KARM Thrift Store, 10612 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37922.
