Seasoned Salt Fellowship

At our next meeting on Wednesday, October 10, our special guest will be Dr. Titus Kennedy. Dr. Kennedy is an archaeologist working primarily with sites and materials related to the Bible, predominantly from the Bronze Age through the Roman period. His fieldwork includes archaeological excavations and surveys at numerous sites in the Middle East and the Americas, and artifact research at museums all over the world. Dr. Kennedy has a wonderful Christian testimony. He also served as research director on the film series “Drive Through History”. He was here nearly two years ago and was a hit!  He will be speaking on “Archeology of Jesus and the Gospels”. The program will take in the Sanctuary and begins at 9:30 am and ends around 11:00 am. Everyone is welcome.

Quilting and Handcrafts
Join us in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, October 27 for our last get-together this year. We’ll be finishing up on our pillowcases for Operation Christmas Child. Everyone is welcome from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Please visit the Info Center if you have any questions.

Operation Christmas Child
If you would like to participate in Operation Christmas Child, you can pick up a shoebox in the lobby and fill it with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, Bible tracts, and/or accessories. This is a ministry that reaches many children every year for Christ and your gift would be a great blessing to a child in need. Please return your filled shoeboxes to the Info Center or the church office by November 19.

Orphan Sunday
All are invited to attend an informational meeting on orphan care for kids in our community. Through the lens of the Gospel, we will see God’s heart for orphans and learn of the various ways in which everyone can be involved. We will meet in the NCC Coffee Shop on Sunday, November 11th at 1:00.  A Father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, is God in His holy habitation. God makes a home for the lonely – Psalm 68:5-6. No Childcare provided.

Nursery and Toddler Ministry
Our Nursery and Toddler Classroom is currently looking for willing servants to watch over the littlest members of our church. You do not need to be a teacher and you are not required to help every week. We are looking for a few people who are willing to volunteer just once a month. If this is something you might be interested in, please visit the Info Center and complete the white, “Nursery and Toddler” card, and drop it in the box. Jeanna, the Nursery and Toddler Coordinator, will be in touch to answer any questions you may have.

Helping Hands Requests
There is an elderly lady in Central Washington who listens to Pastor Bob on the radio and she desperately desires a writing companion, as she is alone with no family or church home. If you would be willing to correspond to her, send an email to for her information. Thank you so much for considering this lady’s heartfelt wish for companionship.

A single mother who lives in Post Falls is in need of someone to watch over her kids from 3:30 pm to 8:30 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday evenings. She is also looking to rent a 5-bedroom home in the near future.

If you are able to help with any of these needs, please call the Church Office at 208-773-7100 or send an email to:    Thank you so much.

Prayer Requests

  • Ron Miller sends this Prayer Request from Thailand: I have a team from Upland, CA arriving. Doctors (hopefully), nurses and a paramedic. Things are not good in the Shan/Wa area of Burma for Christians. There are many needs, both physically and spiritually. Well, after much prayer, P Nu, the staff, and I have decided to go into the Shan States and minister to the needs there. The border is closed, but, no problem, we have found an alternative entrance. Please pray for safety getting in and out, and, most urgently, that beyond ministering to their physically needs that we can minister to their spiritual needs. Very few Christians amongst the Shan and Wa. Please pray. Love you guys. Blessings, Ron Miller
