Halloween and MORE!

Blessings All, Just a quick reminder to parents and grandparents – to encourage your trick-or-treaters to bring a portion (percentage) of their sweet collections from Saturday evening – to church on Sunday morning. We will pour them all together in a basket. This is one of the win-win things. The kids get to have less candy – the parents get to have a bit of a limit on their sugar highs – the families have a teaching moment of not just giving up what you do not want but to think about what others might like to enjoy and people in nursing homes or hospitals will experience a bit more sweetness in their lives. WOW – there are no losers. Sundays’ service will be Communion (do not forget th

Hearing Voices

Blessings to you all, This Sunday’s service will focus on Jesus, Bartimaeus and the crowds in Jericho. The scripture passage is Mark 10:46-52 with a sermon entitled: Hearing Voices. If you have a chance to read this scripture before Sunday you may wish to ask yourself: which voices do I hear in the story? A personal question might be: is your voice in the story? If so, where? This might lead to some sharing during the service this Sunday. If you are considering joining the church – you are invited to stay in the sanctuary for a few minutes after church and chat with the Deacons. I hope to see you on Sunday In Faith Gary

Find Your Place

Blessing All, Tomorrow, Saturday morning from 9:30-11:00 in the Fellowship Hall, Carolyn Tatlock will be facilitating a discussion focusing on the vitality and identity of our church. If you have the time please stop by and add your voice in person to this all-church conversation. The Next Level Team, this Monday evening, will be compiling all the information from all three gatherings. Tomorrow morning we also have a work team heading to Middlebury to help build the next Habitat for Humanity home in Addison County. If you want plug into that or want more info -- contact Alice Maurer at 475-2580. On Sunday our morning worship begins at 9:30 choir practice at 8:30. The scripture for this Su

All In

Blessings to you all – again This Sunday’s service will focus on Mark 10:17-31 with maybe a bit of help from Hebrews 4:12-16. The verses in Mark tell the story of the man coming to Jesus and asking about eternal life. Jesus gave him the answer and the man was not happy about it. The text from Mark will also be the focused scripture passage for the children in Sunday School. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday In Christ, Gary

A Full Sunday

Blessings and Peace to you all, This Sunday we will celebrate our life together with worship, which will include communion, dedication of the Crop Walk Walkers, scriptures will be Job 1:1, 2:10 (everyone’s favorite book) and Mark 10:2-16. The message is entitled: “Broken for Good.” I wonder how you read that message title? We will receive a special offering for the Deacon’s Fund during worship. Following worship we will have a bit of coffee and during coffee hour the bookstore will be open as well as the sign-up table for Crop Walkers. Enjoy the weekend and I hope to see you on Sunday. In Christ, Gary

Walking with the World

Blessings All, The bad news is that hunger is still an issue around the world. The good news is that we will be walking with brothers and sisters around Addison County this Sunday to address hunger issues. The better news is that we will not be walking with Joaquin. The Addison County Crop Walk is this Sunday and at this time we have upwards of 30 walkers from our church planning to make this 3 mile trek through the streets and walkways of Middlebury and the college. There is room for more WALKERS and there certainly is room for more SPONSORS. The Mission Committee will be receiving $$s to support our church walkers and signing up more walkers this Sunday right after church (checks can
