Beth Newberry sent me an email this week that had actual clippings from church newsletters. The comment made by the person who sent these to Beth was: “It’s amazing what a little proof-reading would provide.” Below are a few of the clips:
National PRAYER AND FASTING Conference: “The cost for attending the Fasting and Prayer Conference includes meals.” And the next one: “Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.” And the last one for this week: “The sermon this morning: “Jesus Walks on Water”. The sermon for tonight: “Searching for Jesus.”
More to come in next week’s announcements.
Many thanks to Paul and Janet (and Janet’s daughter Ali) for the time and effort they put into purchasing and transporting fresh fruits and vegetables to the Lucketts Food Pantry that is held twice a month at Faith Chapel. As they reported last Sunday in church they bought 120 bunches of bananas and 120 boxes of apples to serve the 120 people who had signed up to receive food last Saturday. Paul said that it was good that they were able to transport all of this during the day because, if it had been nighttime, his headlights would have been pointed to the sky due to the weight in the back of his car from hauling so much fruit. The Vestry approved the recommendation of the Mission and Outreach Committee to donate $400 a month from their budget to support this effort to feed the hungry in our local community.
A reminder to Vestry members that the meeting scheduled for Nov 17 was changed to this Sunday following the fellowship time. We will meet in Church House.
Can you believe that this Sunday ends the Church year? We are asking that pledges for 2022 be brought to the church or mailed in the next week so that they can be dedicated the first Sunday of the new Church year on November 28. Even more amazing than this coming Sunday being the end of one year is the fact that Nov 28 is the beginning of the season of Advent as well as the beginning of the new Church year. Folks, Christmas is just around the corner!
The calendar is getting crowded with a lot of special events that you won’t want to miss. Mo asked for time in the worship service on Dec 12 for the young people to present their Christmas program. That will be special for everybody! Mark the Wednesdays in December for the potluck suppers and various programs that have been announced. We hope everybody can participate!
This is the third Sunday in the month so that means Rev Tom Prinz will be our guest clergy and we will have communion. Dave will LEM, Brett is the Lector and Beth is the Intercessor for us this week. The readings are 2 Samuel 23:1-7; Psalm 132:1-13; Revelation 1:4b-8. The Gospel reading is John 18:33-37.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. Be thankful for God’s blessings and abundance in our lives. We are truly blest by His goodness and mercy.
