Missions Committee Update:  The Etna Missions committee received an email update from Carrie Pollock of Cru Military on "Captain R" and family, including photographs. His wife's description of life at this juncture of the war is vivid. Carrie points out that the family is most appreciative of the love and support provided by our congregation.The Committee would like the ladies who provided the letters/cards/notes and pocket prayer quilts in our package to know that Cru Military expects that couriers will be available in mid-November to hand deliver the entire package to Capt. R's wife.    
Fall Fest Success! This year’s Fall Fest was a great success with over 100 in attendance once again. Thank you to all who helped make that wonderful outreach possible!
