Your weekly look at what's happening
  
Greetings,
I hope everyone enjoyed last Sunday's commemoration of the Protestant Reformation. This Sunday, we will have a recognition of All Saints' Sunday and will remember the saints in our own lives who have passed this year. I'll be preaching on the subject of humility. We will also hold our annual Tri-Lingual Congregational Meeting where we will approve the slate of officers and terms of calls for all three pastors. The meeting will begin at 11:30 AM following a shortened worship service. And don't forget, we are still worshipping at Cameron House.
Blessings,
Tad Hopp
 Communications Coordinator
 Presbyterian Church in Chinatown
