Come to the UMW Meeting on Monday, November 4th at 1:00pm and hear Ellie Armstrong share her experience of hiking the way of St. James (the Camino de Santiago de Compostela) which is an ancient pilgrimage route. She and her husband, Rich, walked two hundred and fifty miles from St. Jean-Pied-du-Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, experiencing interesting talks and places along the way. All are welcome.

ANNUAL REPORTS: If you are responsible for writing an annual report, please have them into the church office NO LATER than NOVEMBER 12th.

Our Parish Charge Conference (annual meeting) is Monday November 18th, here at Bourne UMC, starting with a potluck supper at 5:30, meeting to start at 6:30. Our District Superintendent asks that we be ready to respond to two questions: 1) If your church has one goal that is practical, concrete, and tangible next year, what would it be? And 2) Does your congregation have Spiritual Disciplines to be transformed by the Spirit? (Prepare to share your concrete and practical spiritual disciplines). Please attend if at all possible.

CHRISTMAS DECORATING PARTY: On Sunday, November 24th, everyone is invited to stay and help decorate the sanctuary and Crain Hall after worship and coffee hour. Please help us prepare our church for the Advent season which begins Sunday, December 1st.
