Youth Warrior Weekend, Fri-Sun, Oct 6-8
Learn what it means to be a warrior of the Lord at this high-energy and fun weekend! Students from our church and other churches on the Peninsula will join together to hear speakers, discuss and analyze their walk with God, learn to apply Scripture to their lives and live as a Christian everyday. And then there’s awesome sword-fighting! Be prepared to train, do drills and embark on epic battles and adventures. The swords are foam but the fun is real! Based on the game of Dagohir (medieval fantasy sword fighting, Google it), students will have a blast preparing for “battle!” Safety is a priority and there will be rules and expected conduct. We’ll be outside a lot so appropriate clothing will be needed.

Get the earlybird discount! Pay $25 per student before Sep 28; after that date the price goes up to $30. A packet that includes a permission slip, student covenant of behavior and bring/don’t bring list will be available soon at the Welcome Center and in the Youth Room (214). Questions, contact Pastor Adam Roberts at 877-0297 (office), 570-4009 (cell) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . There will be plenty of adult supervision.

Sunday School Outreach
Sunday School classes meet at the church at 10 am on Sat, Oct 14 and deliver letters of re-introduction to homes in a speciaific area of the radius around the church. These letter contain an invite to the church and many members are able to engage in conversation with our neighbors and sometimes share the Gospel! Folks who are unable to walk can ride in the church van and spend time praying for the work.

Global Hunger Relief Day
Tabernacle's Women on Mission observe World Hunger Day every year on the second Sunday in October with a delicious hot soup and sandwich meal. The meal is free but you are asked to make a donation toward ending World Hunger. The meal is served immediately following worship on Sunday morning, Oct 15.

Apple Butter-Making Day
Sat, Oct 21 is apple butter-making day! Our own Ray Salyer grew up making apple butter in western Virginia and brought his skills east. Apple butter is made in a giant kettle over an open flame- everybody gets a turn at stirring- then canned in sterile jars and labeled. The jars are sold and the proceeds benefit the mission trip fund. (They make great Christmas presents!)

Pick-A-Day-To-Fast Week
We have been relearning the benefits of the spiritual discipline of fasting through regularly choosing a day to fast each quarter and focusing on a particular topic during the fast. This month the focus is on the lost in our family and circle of influence. Choose a day this week and fast from sundown to sundown.

Trunk or Treat!
Tabernacle members decorate their cars and share treats with the community in this annual event that starts at 6 pm on Halloween, Tue, Oct 31. Register for a great prize and make the rounds, playing games, getting treats and catching some great photo ops! The City of Newport News trick-or-treating rules apply- children must be under 13 and the event ends at 8 pm.
