The OWLS outing for October has been changed to Oct 22nd.  Marion and Lynn will both be out of town on Oct. 15, necessitating the date change.  We will meet at Bella Vita Restaurant, 9675 Liberia Ave., Manassas, VA (an all time favorite place to meet). Please RSVP to Lynn Furlong (703-499-0243) by October 18 so a number can be given to the restaurant.  Remember, OWLS (Older, Wiser, Livelier, Seniors) is open to anyone 55 and older. We are always happy to have new OWLS join us.

Trunk or Treat is on Tuesday, October 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the front parking lot. Rain date is October 28. This event is an incredible outreach opportunity, but it takes a team of volunteers to make it happen. If you are available October 26, there are many opportunities to help. We need volunteers to hand out hot dogs with Frank and Janel, greet attendees, manage parking, and refill candy. Most of all we need your trunk! We typically have 20-30 cars hosting “trunks” to make the event a success - decorating and costumes add to the fun. This year's theme is "Make Your Mark." The Children's Council will be dressed as colorful art supplies! We invite you to join in our theme, or create something entirely unique for your family and your trunk. If you aren't able to support this event day-of, please consider donating candy to the bins in the narthex (nut-free if possible). Bins will be available from September 26 to October 24. We are excited about what God continues to do through this event! We hope you will help us provide this free gift to our community.
