Blessings to you all,
This evening Abigail will be facilitating another Friday Family Fun Night including a meal provided by the Strum family. Tomorrow we gather to remember May Fay. The service begins at 1:00 followed by a committal service at Prospect cemetery followed by a reception in our Fellowship Hall. The choir will gather at noon and if you wish to add the gift of your voice to this ministry of music in honor of May – come on in.
Just a quick reminder to anyone with excess candy following the semi-holy day of Halloween. The kids can being in their stash and adults can add what they have left over and we will fill a basket and send the goodies out to those who may need a bit of a lift – or a sugar high.
This is one of those win-win things that I love.
Sunday is Communion Sunday (remember the Deacons’ offering). The scriptures are: Micah 5:3-12 and Matthew 23:1-12 with a message entitled: “The Sin of Individualism.” In Matthew – it is obvious that Jesus had lost his patience with the Scribes and the Pharisees and gave them both barrels – especially if you read the verses following verse 12. Micah – does not mince words either as he focuses on the disparity between the haves and the have nots – between those in positions of power and those who depend upon them.
Sunday begins our 2-week, 3-Sunday Stewardship (Estimate of Giving) Campaign as each of us will be asked to consider our level of support for the ministries of our church for 2018. This will culminate on November 19th (Sunday) with a Celebration Sunday Luncheon. Pledge Packets will be mailed out next week.
On Sunday afternoon Abigail will hold her second “Rhythms of Grace” time for children with special needs and their families (2-4 on Sunday afternoon in the Fellowship Hall.
May you find places of peace and growth this weekend
