All Saints Sunday
Sunday, November 5 we celebrate All Saints Day. We will remember and name the saints in our lives who have died in this past year. At the same time, though, we name the saints in our midst: those who have been baptized this year – the future of the church! A candle will be lit for those who have died and those who were baptized this past year.
Sunday, November 12 was our Annual Fall Festival. What a wonderful day! Thank you to everyone who made this a success.
There was a hay rack ride and movies for the youth. Something new this year was a pumpkin decorating contest. Delicious foods in the baking contest. A wonderful lunch. A great auction with many wonderful items. Thank you to everyone who brought items for the auction and to those who purchased.
Thank you to Gretchen Jopp and Chelle Ringsdorff for chairing this event. The December Newsletter will have all of the details of the event.
Sunday Evening, November 12 at 6:00 was Pub Theology at Keg Creek Brewery. Father Dan of Holy Rosary and Pastor Luke led the discussion. This month's discussion was "Angels, Demons, and the Supernatural" in scripture and tradition. A large group attended and it was a lively discussion!
Remember food donations are needed year around. Please bring your donations and place in the shopping cart in the Narthex. Food items are donated to the Mills Co. Food Pantry and the Ministerial Association's Food Pantry. Bring the items in, weigh it, record in in the binder and place in the cart. We are called to glorify God, grow in faith, and build community. Check the Newsletter for items needed.
