October Prayer Focus:
That the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Dear Family at Northeast – We would like to thank you all for your prayers, kind words, visits, gifts, balloons, meals, help, and all the ways that you blessed our family during Ethan’s time in the hospital and the weeks since. You comforted us, made us smile, distracted us, reminded us of Jesus and were so wonderful. Words cannot express how much each act of love has meant to us during this difficult journey and we thank God for giving us family like you! Love, Jay, Mandy, Ethan, Haley, Ashlyn and Evan
We had our fall kids’ closet event on October 6th. We were able to help 5 families find clothes for their kids. Special thanks to Kim Horne, Linda Vanzant, and Becky Applegate for their help with kids’ closet. We welcome donations of new or gently used kids’ clothes and shoes in sizes for newborns through boys’ and girls’ size 16. – Tacy Bonner

It’s time to start thinking about College Goodie Boxes!! First, let me say “Thank you” to all those who have participated in this program that has meant so much to our college kids over the years. For the newer members who may not be aware of the specifics, every college student is invited to fill out a form asking about favorite cookies, snacks, etc. and once per semester they receive a goodie box filled by a member at Northeast just to let them know we love them and are praying for them, and that they are an important part of our church family. If you would be willing to fix a goodie box to send to one of our college students, please let me know ASAP at email@example.com or (423) 534-7843. I will provide a form filled out by the student, box, packing supplies, and labels; the church supplies the postage to send the box.
Please consider being part of this important ministry for our students! If you would like to help fill a box but not do the whole thing, we can also work that out. If you have any questions, please contact me via the email or phone number listed above. Thanks, Charlene
If you can be an Auditorium Angel, please sign up on the bulletin board in the Office wing. This consists of replacing cards, pencils, and picking up stuff laying around.
