New Business:
The town of Indiahoma is getting a new garbage system that will start November 1st.  Trash pick-up day will be Monday and we will have our own trash can. (We've been taking trash to the dumpsters which will no longer be available.) Daryl will get the trash can out to the curb for pick up on Mondays.

Pastors Report:
Charge Conference is Monday, October 15, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Most reports are done. The few remaining will be done this week.

Pastor Jim is going to a workshop called the Kingswood Initiative in Hobart on October 18th, 5-9:00 p.m.

From the brochure:  This is the heart of the “Kingswood Initiative,”—a workshop on missional thinking and action.While most United Methodists remember John Wesley’s “heartwarming” experience at Aldersgate, few seem to remember that an equally powerful thing happened to him about a year later. It was then that Wesley first preached outdoors, taking the gospel from the church to the places of pain and suffering in  England during that time. Kingswood was a local mine where Wesley discovered what was to be the lasting focus of his revival ministry: going to where people were, taking a Gospel of Good News, and of loving action—to bring healing and wholeness in every sense of those words.

There's a hayride and corn maze outing to Chickasha on Friday, October 26th.  Let Pastor Jim know if you want to go.

On Sunday, October 28th, Snyder UMC is having a Trunk-or-Treat event.  Come in  your costume and get treats from vehicles instead of from houses.

Fred made his second motion to adjourn. Al seconded. Motion carried unanimously.
