There will be
NO SUNDAY SCHOOL THIS WEEK
As an outward sign of the Holy Spirit within us we encourage you to WEAR RED on Sunday !
This Sunday, This Week
This Sunday's Focus
On this day we celebrate the heart of our faith: the gospel of Christ—the good news—that makes us free! We pray that the Holy Spirit would continue to unite the church today in its proclamation and witness to the world. In the waters of baptism we are made one body; we pray for the day that all Christians will also be one at the Lord’s table.
Coming Soon
Thanksgiving Ingathering
Sign up in the Narthex to donate bags of food for our annual Thanksgiving Ingathering. These items are then distributed through LSS to the less fortunate for Thanksgiving dinner. We will begin collecting the food bags on November 4 and continue through November 11, this year. For a list of items to put in each bag, click here .
FALL BACK!!! (We gain an hour! Woohoo!!) on November 4th. Our Time falls back and we encourage you to bring your loose change to church. Please help the youth support our Compassion International child by bringing in your spare change to church! We are in the process of sending Jackquiline, who has been sponsored since 2010, a final gift as she has graduated from her school. Souaibou has been sponsored since 2014. He is from Burkina Faso and is in the 7th Grade. The youth communicate through letters with these children about 3 times per year. Please remember on November 4th to “fall back” an hour and bring your spare change to help support the youth in their ministry to these two children on Time and Change Sunday!
