The Institute for American Church Growth interviewed 10,000 church attenders to learn how they came into their church. JOINT COUNCIL MEETING - ROOM 136 2.0% ..... Due to a special Need 3.0% ..... Just walked in 6.0% ..... Because of the Pastor's influence 1.0% ..... In response to visitation from the church 5.0% ..... Due to interest in Sunday School 3.0% ..... Because of interest in a particular program 79.0% ..... From the influence of a friend or relative One researcher made this observation: It may come as a surprise that the most powerful agent (besides the Holy Spirit) of church growth is the person in the pew... The church begins to grow when Christ's body identify themselves with His great commission, to "go into their world" and reach out to the persons they already know (Mark 16:15).

Let me share some information with you – At the Nashville Baptist Association Annual meeting these stats were shared with us… October Benevolence Hunger--Haiti by Janis Morel Hunger is around all year but here at Crievewood we emphasize more giving during this month. We have chosen to give the October Benevolence Offering to the Heart of Worship in Haiti and this Sunday the 12th is the designated Sunday. Please give generously. $5 feeds 1 student for a month $60 feeds 1 student for a year It only takes 200 people giving $5 a month to feed the entire school. At present only half the amount of money needed for the year has been raised. We will continue collecting money for the entire month. If you would like to write a check, please put “October Benevolence” on the by-line. Please be a part of the solution for these children.

Register Online at www.Crievewood.org or at the Welcome Center by Gary & Janis Morel I want to share our experience of delivering the items collected during VBS Christmas in July/August with all of you, our church family. The best way to do this is a few short articles in the Update. West Virginia , Part 4 - Some Surprising Facts More coal mines are closing in October, many parents will be out of work. The only tithers at HarborLight Church are the pastor and his wife. The children are fed every time they come to church, many families get monthly food boxes. The Sunday night we were there the 6 adults served biscuits, sausage, gravy and cleaned up after 30 kids. The children are picked up from school on Tuesdays for homework and fun times at the church. The boys particularly love basketball. There are services at the church Sunday mornings, evenings and Wednesdays. The older kids have gone on a mission trip to share Jesus with others Pastor James and Grace are no spring chickens and Pastor James has some health problems but they are very willing to be used by God in this place.

Heart of Worship Ministry by Barbara Hoskins Food provided by the Heart of Worship lunch program includes rice and beans with the traditional Haitian red sauce, fish and cornmeal. Your World Hunger gift this month will help Carolyn Evey and HOW provide one healthy meal a day for children attending school in Haiti. For most of these students, this is their only consistent hot meal. Not only are they healthier because they are eating but they can stay awake during lessons, remember more of what they are learning, laugh and play as children should and look forward to coming to school with their friends. Thank you for helping children living in poverty grow and thrive in Haiti.
