GLOW: Irfan and Nathalia Rasman are now leading our GLOW ministry at Mentone. If you have a place of business we would love for you to put a GLOW rack there to be a constant witness. Let’s remember our goal of passing out 4000 tracts per month! That is just 4 per week.

Thanksgiving Card Follow up: Please sign-up in the breezeway to pray for a street in the neighborhood (where we mailed cards), and take a picture of your list and the map. We are going door to door with gifts and prayers to Leave God’s Love in Hearts and Homes this holiday season. We will go together on Dec. 11. at 2 pm, but you can also take gifts and a map and go any day of the week that you are available for this missionary project. Please call Rohini 909-801-0406 to pick up gifts.

Win your neighbors to Christ and His truth in 2022: Do you have a burden for your neighbors? Prayerfully choose 2-3 neighbors and send their complete names and addresses to evangelism@mentonechurch.org and based on the number of requests we will send at least 12 pieces of Christ-centered present-truth material (books, DVD’s, etc.) to them in 2022.

Vaccine exemption waiver: If you have a religious conviction that would result in your conscience being violated by taking the vaccine, please contact Pastor John Anderson, and he can provide a letter.

Meal Trains. Thank you for helping these families, by either cooking a meal or buying a meal for them!
