On October 12 we had our annual Community Fall Festival.
Despite the weather being a little chilly and wet, we had a great
turnout!! The petting zoo was a huge hit, as always, and the baby
camel had lots of people asking “Heyyy, what day is it?” as they
posed for pictures. The rock climbing wall, which was reported as
being the tallest in West Virginia, brought out the rock climber in all
of us! Young and old alike lined up to take their turn to see how
high they could make it. The most popular attraction of the day,
though, had to be the mechanical bull! Again children, youth, and
adults all showed off their bull riding skills (or lack thereof) as they
tried to see who could stay on the longest! There was plenty of food
for everyone, and the soup beans were especially good with the
cooler weather. This was a great day and a wonderful way to
connect to others in our community. We were able serve our
community, provide them with a great afternoon, and show them
the love of Christ. A BIG THANK YOU to all who volunteered and
gave of themselves to make this event a success!

One Service on November 9 @ 10:30
Pastor Lloyd Announces Retirement Plans
Mark your calendars for November 9 as Dr. Tom Lipsey will share his trial
sermon. On that morning, we will have one service at 10:30. There will be a
business meeting immediately following the service to vote on Dr. Lipsey as
the Lead Pastor, as well as the upcoming budget for 2015 and a presentation
from the Nominating Committee. The business meeting will include all three
campuses through a media connection. Please make a point to be here
November 9 and be in prayer about this special time in our church.
During the September meeting of the Executive Board, Pastor Lloyd
communicated his plans to retire effective at the end of 2014. He joined the
SPBC staff in 2004 and has served since then in both a full-time and part-time
capacity. He and Barbara plan to remain in the community and continue to be
part of the SPBC family.

Special Prayer Time for Carrie Kerr This Evening
This evening we will be having a special prayer time for Carrie Kerr and her
family. Everyone is invited to attend this special prayer time at the end of the

through the power of prayer. Please join Carrie and her family during this
Church-n-Treat on Wednesday
Come and join us for Church-n-Treat! This is a great time to come and meet
some of your church family. We will be inside where it is warm, dry and well
lit – so no worries about the weather or having to wear a coat to cover up that
super cute princess dress or super cool super hero costume! We will start at
5:15 and end at 6:00 so our regular classes can start on time. Look forward to
seeing you on October 29th!
