All Saints Day – November 1, 2020

All Saints Sunday will be an important hour where we will honor and remember the saints among us who have now gone on before us into light eternal: Matthew Barker, Rev. Bonnie Bell, Suzanne Duval, Kirk McMilin, Al Mitchell, Delores Price, Ginny Ruble, and Judy Webber.

We will call to mind and heart all the ways that God’s grace, love, joy and peace came to us through their lives as we lift them each up in prayer and memory.

Our worship service will be recorded and posted here so that you can participate on Sunday morning.  Our gathering for worship each Sunday in our homes or wherever we can, is very essential to strengthen us to meet the world’s challenges.

Previous weeks worship services are recorded as well.  Please find attached, the bulletin cover artwork, scripture readings & prayers in the Celebrate.

I hope you are able to experience God’s Spirit of Fellowship, Love, Grace and Peace through our Zoom bible studies led by Pastor Jim. Bible studies are Thursdays at 11am and 7:30 pm (new time).  Same Zoom link.  An email is sent out each week with the link.

Please let us know if there are other ways you see that our church can be supportive.

Thank you for your continued faithfulness in your financial giving back to God through our church. Please remember to either give your offering through the mail, through our website donation option, signing up for monthly electronic giving, OR if you just want to get out of the house, then come by the church and drop it off in the mailbox in a secure slot called “Incoming mail”!  Office hours are M-Th 8:30-2:30. If you come during those times, you may also want to step into the sanctuary for some prayer and quiet time with God. We would love to see you.  Our library is also open to you with quite a variety to choose from.

Thank you to those of you who have been sending us notes and messages of encouragement and support. They help keep us hopeful and joyful! We always love to hear how things are going.  We would like to share your experiences in the Newsletter each month.  So, give some thought to what’s been happening in your life – we all miss each other, and would be thrilled to hear what’s up!

Other notes:

  • If any of you would like to participate, we are open to a few people Reading Scripture and offering the Prayers of Intercession from the Celebrate page.  Or if you would just like to come to worship – Saturdays 11:00 am.  Call Leslie at 476-4700 to schedule your spot .  
  • Habitat for Humanity has resumed.  We will be providing Lunches (sandwiches and fruit still needed) for 10 volunteers.  Tuesday, October 27 at 10:30 am.  Reply to this email or call office if you would like to help out.  Thank you Janet for taking care of chips for the next few months :).

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jim
