Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

Hey all

Trunk-or-Treat was tonight. We had a great turnout. It's hard to say what the exact count was but we estimate that there was probably about 60+ kids that came. We figure we had over 100 people total. That's about double last year, which is what we were praying for. God is good.

Butch had the camera tonight and he doesn't take near as many pictures as me, but I'll post some in the next couple of days.

The other praise for tonight was the weather. We had all the games outside this year so we didn't have to take down the chairs. The wind stayed away and it didn't get super cold. After our early snow I wasn't sure what it would do. We had coffee and hot chocolate, which we went through a lot of, plus we had a roasting fire so people were able to warm up if they did get chilled. Surprisingly, we went through more hot dogs than s'mores. Go figure!

Thanks for your prayers for Trunk-or-Treat. The Lord blessed this event and the community is becoming more aware that we are here and reaching to them. We had quite a few unchurched families come and some that are on the fringes. Pray that we will continue to be able to continue to reach out to these families.
