Weekly “Recollection” Update, Week 2—This week our classes focused on “Who Are We Historically?”  For homework, participants were asked to create both life and faith timelines.  Many emphasized how the exercise opened their eyes to how God has been present in their lives and has drawn them into Christian community in unexpected ways.  In class, participants reviewed the Cokes Chapel Historical Timeline.  There was much excitement about this with folks discovering interesting facts about our history that they were unaware of.  (Reviewing our history could be a class in itself!)  In small groups, participants created group timelines, naming dates and experiences that were important to them.  Everyone enjoyed hearing each other’s stories, especially stories of how people came to Cokes Chapel and stories of happy times together.  One group stated, we “gave thanks for the warmth, acceptance, love and welcoming spirit of Cokes Chapel.”

COKES CHAPEL CHILDCARE FUN RUN, FUND-RAISER
The childcare will be holding a fun run on Friday, November 9th as one of the few fundraisers they hold for the year.  There will be a short track set up in the parking lot and the field as part of the fun run. The kids will have fun while exercising and participating in “laps” along with other fun activities for the kids. 
 
The parking lot will be blocked off from 9:30am until 12:00pm.  This event will benefit both Cokes Chapel Childcare as well as Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.  25% of the money raised will go to this foundation.  The students will work to collect pledges and donations. 
 
If any church member, parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles would like to participate or volunteer, there is a sign-up sheet located on the resource table in the front lobby of the childcare.  The childcare is also looking for sponsorship to fund the creation of t-shirts for the event.  Your sponsorship will allow each child to receive a t-shirt for participating in the fun run.  Sponsorship is for $50 or greater.
