Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost - October 27, 2019
Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Morsel for Meditation
"The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums… Complete self-confidence is not merely a sin; complete self-confidence is a weakness. Believing utterly in one’s self is a hysterical and superstitious belief...

Stewardship Today
Frank McKee – Stewardship Committee

Today in our prayers, Christians are, by our very theology, ecologists. We love this planet Earth that God has created for us. What we return, comes from God. With our offering this morning, we honor God. Thank You.

If you've ever felt uncomfortable talking about your faith with people who believe differently—you're not alone. When you look at the life and ministry of Jesus, you'll see nine different ways that he engaged with people. These practices, or "arts," are skills you can learn that will naturally deepen your connections with others. Spiritual conversations may then become an everyday reality, and you'll have a front row seat as God changes people's lives.

Mark your calendar and learn how to create a safe space to have natural, loving, and spiritual conversations with others.

Stay tuned for more details!!

You may add people to the list by filling out a DOK confidential prayer card and putting them in the blue box located in the Narthex.
Contact our church office to add a name to our prayer list: 903-455-5030 or Names remain for one month unless renewed or canceled.
The Daughters of the King support your prayer needs and wishes. Each Sunday a prayer team will be available to pray with you after the Worship Service in the choir area after the 10:30 service. If you would like additional information, please see a DOK member.

They also have a intercessory prayer box on the table in the Narthex to deposit prayer requests. Prayer request cards may be found in the pews and beside the box in the Narthex. Daughters pray daily. All prayers are confidential. Each person is prayed for one month. If you wish for continued prayers, please complete another request card or contact a Daughter. You may call the church office (903-455-5030) and specify it is for the DOK intercessory prayer list. You can hand the card to a Daughter (she is always wearing her cross).
