THANK OFFERING | OCTOBER 23
We will take up this special offering Sunday, Ocotber 23rd. It is a time for you and your family to say thank you to God for all the ways He has blessed you in this past year. This offering will go to provide for the turkeys for our Thanksgiving Meals, Hurricane Ian Relief, and our 2023 Food Pack Event and many other opportunities for us to bless the community and those around the world. You can give in the envelopes on each row or online.

THANKSGIVING FOOD COLLECTION | OCTOBER 30 – NOVEMBER 13
We are beginning our food collection for Thanksgiving. We have lists in the lobby or online of non-perishable items that will make up a complete meal. Please donate what you can. Place the food items on the stage and we will make up the food bags. Gamble Rogers has given us info about the need of 30 families. If you know of a deserving family in need, please let us know with the name, address and contact information.
MISSIONS COLLECTION IN THE LOBBY
God’s Kitchen: We’re collecting non-perishable items like canned vegetables, rice, potatoes, pasta, etc.
Faith Promise Sunday
In years past, Homeport has supported our Missionaries by sending 10% of our weekly giving. As we sought the Lord’s guidance and direction regarding our missions giving, we felt the draw to change our missions support to a different model. Faith Promise offers all of us an opportunity to trust the Lord. It’s a chance to step out in faith and give above what we give through our tithes and offerings.
On Sunday, November 20th we are hosting our first Faith Promise rally and ask that you begin to prayerfully consider how you will participate in stepping out in faith to support our missionaries the work they are doing around the globe.
