Feast of Christ the King (23rd Sunday after Trinity-October 30, 2016

PLEASE WELCOME OUR GUEST ORGANIST, STEVE WRIGHT.

DISCUSSION GROUP CONCLUDES NEXT WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2
Discussion on The Elements of the Spiritual Life concludes this week with Chapter 6, on the Gifts of the Spirit: Holy Fear, Godliness, Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel, and Ghostly Strength. As we’ve read this book, we’ve been stirred to desire more of God’s will in the way we live our lives. Thank you to those who have participated, as we all learn from one another.

BIBLICAL REFLECTIONS, A DISCUSSION GROUP, LEAD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
This discussion group meets each Sunday, 9:15 am – 10:15 am in the Nursery. Please bring a Bible (any version) and perhaps a notebook in order to keep track of what the Spirit is saying. Also please bring a folding chair from one of the other classrooms. Men and women are invited. Just come when you are able. If you have questions about this new group, please speak with Ann Whitfield who is the facilitator.

RED WAGON PANTRY – OCTOBER IS SOUP, STEW, AND SPAGHETTI MONTH!
The Food Pantry can use some Hearty/Chunky soup, Stew, and canned goods such as Spaghetti. If anyone knows of someone in need of food, please speak with Father Hines so the food pantry can assist. Thank you so much.

CHOIR FUND
As we approach Christmas 2016, our choir fund is short of cash and unable to cover the costs of our holiday expenses. Please prayerfully consider making a small donation to the choir fund. Your contributions will be used to purchase special music for Christmas and Easter and help advertise the Nine Lessons and Carols. If you have any questions, please speak with Father Hines.

GREETING VISITORS
The ministry of being a Greeter is more important and rewarding than you may realize. It is important to make visitors feel welcome. Just saying “hello,” asking visitors to sign the guest book, and giving them a small gift helps people feel comfortable. If you are interested in helping with this important project, please speak with Ann Whitfield.
