Rehearsals for the Christmas Play will begin today DURING fellowship so that the JOY and GOYA members can be on time for their event at 1:00pm. All the children that are in the play please go upstairs immediately after Sunday school and before refreshments are served. We ask that parents accompany the younger children.

During fellowship, make sure you see the books available to order from the Church Book Store. They make great Christmas gifts.

YOUNKER COUPON BOOK FUNDRAISER – We will again this year taking advantage of the opportunity to raise funds by selling the $5 coupon books from Younkers. We get to keep the $5 for each coupon book sold and if we sell 75 coupon books we also get an additional "bonus" from Younkers ($424 last year). If you are interested in selling some of these books or buying one for yourself please talk with Edie Yerington.

PARISH ASSEMBLY – Sunday, November 18 – Please mark your calendars and prepare to attend the Fall Parish Assembly. In addition to being in good canonical standing with the Church, the UPRs and our bylaws also state that all Eligible Voters need to fill out a Pledge Form (Stewardship Commitment Card), pay all prior year balances at least 30 days before the Parish Assembly, and pay at least 75% of the current year’s pledge by the date of the Parish Assembly. Remember, if there is financial hardship to fulfill your pledged amount, speak to Fr. Peter and all adjustments will be made accordingly.

FALL GREEK DINNER – Please turn in all ticket sale income and left over tickets a.s.a.p.Remember, payments made for (purchasing) returned tickets become a tax-deductible donation.

If you would like to learn Byzantine chant improve your chanting skills, please join Fr. Peter on Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. for chant class. If that time does not work with your schedule, let Fr. Peter know.

Next Sunday, during the Thanksgiving dinner, there will be a presentation from our stewardship chairperson, Elleni Huerter
