Man Up. This Tues., Nov. 12, at 7:30 pm, Restoration men will have the opportunity to “train themselves for godliness.” We’re gathering once a month for 7 months in the Little Falls sanctuary to talk about our character and to connect with potential mentors. This month’s topic: selflessness. Questions? Go to restorationarlington.org/contact and choose “Connect.”
Operation Christmas Child: Start saving those shoeboxes! Fill them with holiday gifts for children in need around the world. We’ll collect them the next two Sundays, Nov. 17 and Nov. 24, in the narthex. If you need a Ready-to-Go shoebox, they’re available in the narthex today. Questions? Contact Cara Voth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
