Attention all musicians, we are beginning the planning for our Annual Holiday Concert at Mentone. It will take place December 18th at 4:30 pm. Gather your groups and selections and start practicing. Please let us know no later than NOVEMBER 26th. Please be aware that we may need to have groups perform less selections to provide space for as many as possible. Get your requests in as soon as possible as we have a limited concert schedule. All selections will need to be screened by one of the Music Coordinators, which includes Julie Bowes, Anna Sparks, Denise Templeton, and Kathleen Wong.

Mentone Choir rehearsal time has changed. At first we were planning to practice on Tuesdays, but due to some schedule conflicts, and in an effort to accommodate as many singers as possible, we are moving the time to MONDAY NIGHTS at 7:00 PM. Our next rehearsal will be Monday, November 8, at 7:00 pm. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Evangelism Training. Do you want to have more confidence in sharing your faith with others? When you enroll in this 12-week course, you will learn practical skills on how to win people for Christ. You will learn how to engage people in meaningful conversations and to transition naturally into spiritual topics. You will discover simple and effective means to easily find Bible study interests. You will learn how to write your own Bible study, how to give it, how to answer tough questions, and how to lead someone to make decisions for Christ. You will learn how to close the proverbial back door of the church by helping new members become active disciples for Jesus. Sign up today at http://mentonechurch.org/evangelism
