News in a Nutshell – Oct 31, 2017

October 31, 2017     Velvet Seaton    

Dear TOCS Family,

I hope everyone has a safe Halloween. I have been amazed at all the different alternative events that are put on by area churches. I am grateful for Christians that are reaching their community while providing an alternative event.

I wanted to remind you of the Thanksgiving Feast order forms. These forms are due this Friday November 3rd. Every student should turn in a form. On the form this year there is a place to check even if you are not attending. This will help us plan and coordinate. Please turn in the form even if you are not attending.

If you did not notice on Facebook, there is a video of the recent 2nd grade play. It is available for you to view. Also there was a note stating that our Lady Warrior basketball team won the Rogersville JV Tournament. They went undefeated.

Please let me know how I can minister to you and your family. I continue to pray for you. Please continue to pray for the school.

In Christ,

Jimmy Webb, School Administrator

Mitten Tree

What is the Mitten Tree?  The Mitten Tree is a way in which Towering Oaks Christian School students and families can show love by ministering to the needs  of children of Indians who live on the Ft. Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana.  These families are not fortunate enough to have warm clothing during their very cold winter.  What an awesome way we can show them God’s great love!

We will be collecting:  hats, gloves, scarves, etc., and new and/or gently used coats.   Items may be placed on or around the “mitten tree” in the hallway near the school office. Items will be collected until next Friday, Nov. 3.

Please be thinking about what God would have  you/us to do in helping this ministry!

Samaritan’s Purse

Gather your shoe boxes and begin packing! Don’t wait until the last minute!  The collection deadline and dedication date for shoe boxes this year will be November 16th.    An information flyer and labels should have come home with this week’s “nutshell”; if you need more labels, you may pick some up from the office. We will need parents help in checking shoe boxes if any one is interested in helping.  For more information, contact Donna Myers.
