Good afternoon everyone! Today, we joined churches throughout the world in Holy Communion as part of World Wide Communion Sunday.
We also congratulate Madison Coleman, Joseph Peluso, Emmerson Winnie and Madelyn Wolf on their confirmations as members of the congregation. Some pictures from today are displayed below. To view our full photo album, CLICK HERE.
Also, Pastor Christopher concluded his sermon series, "Servanthood" with a message about loving and serving others, based on 1 Peter 4:8-11. Servanthood is the gift that keeps on giving.
Please watch this week's episode of Christopher's Chat, weekly messages by Rev. Christopher Wolf:
OTHER CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENTS
Church Roof Update
After receiving several bids, we have now secured a contractor to replace the roof on our church. The cost will be $24,500. Consistory has approved paying this out of our current account. However, if we find down the road we need to replenish our account, we will then move the money out of Book of Remembrance. The work will take less than one week to complete once it begins and should be done before the end of October. There will be NO disruption to our church activities during this time. If you have any further questions, please speak to anyone on the buildings and grounds committee.
Please check the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside the upstairs kitchen for Sundays that remain open to host.
Ongoing Clothing Drive We continue to accept bagged or boxed donations of clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, linens, curtains and towels. All donations may be left outside Pastor Christopher's garage doors in the Ackerman Avenue parking lot anytime.
