October 15th Recap

Another Men’s Night at North Shore Bible Church is in the history books and it was a great night. We started off with some wonderful food, white bean and chicken chili, corn bread, French bread, salad and a super tasty apple crisp with whip cream. We thank Tom Anglin and Lee Cook for their efforts. Stepping up to the plate for our November 5 Men’s Night will be Darrell Alkema and Mel DeLong, thanks guys.

After dinner I brought up the fact that some in our group have already departed for warmer weather (couldn’t be any better than right here) and others will be heading south soon. The group wants to continue with our meetings through November and then talk about the rest of the winter. Could be those remaining might just want to go out for breakfast? 

Next I reminded everyone about the upcoming ICE (in case of emergency) meeting that will take place on Tuesday – October 20 starting at 8:00 at North Shore Bible Church. This meeting will set the stage of a Communication and Preparedness Fair that will be held on Saturday – November 7 at North Shore from 1 to 3. I’m encouraging North Shore members to consider being on the ICE team.

Next I made everyone aware on the Manson Chamber of Commerce sponsored “Manson Night to Remember and Silent Auction” on Thursday – October 22. This will be a fun night open to the public. The MCC will honor several individuals for their efforts this past year. The venue is the Mill Bay Casino starting with a social hour at 6:00 followed by a prime rib dinner at 7:00. Ticket price is $30 and you can get tickets at the Green Dot, Mountain View Lodge and other local businesses.

Pastor Craig reminded everyone about and upcoming event called Trunk or Treat that will be held in the church parking lot on Halloween, October 31, from 5 until you run out of candy. This event is also sponsored by the Manson Chamber of Commerce. Craig would like the congregation to bring at least 30 cars, SUVs, vans or trucks. Your rig can be decorated or not. Just have a big supply of candy to hand out to kids. I for one plan to be there, sounds like fun!

We next moved into the question for night, which really brought up some great conversation. Have you had times in your life when you had to be strong even though you didn’t want to? How have you strengthen your family, marriage, work relationships, friendships, faith, etc.? Do you have someone you look up to as a strong person?


Mark your calendar for our next Men’s Night meeting on Thursday – November 5 at 6:00
